New Beirut, "La Llorna"
The first noise out of the Beirut camp comes from the first single off of the upcoming March of the Zapotec/Holland, "La Llorna". As many have heard, Zach Condon recorded half of the album in Mexico with the Jimenez Band, and the other, a series of home recordings. This track and video are both extremely interesting, as Condon has adjusted the Balkans-sounding Beirut to the Mexican atmosphere in which he was recording in. The result- so far, so good. March of the Zapotec/Holland is out February 17th, via Pompeii Records/Ba Da Bing.
