Vinyl LP pressing 2011 album from the lovingly-adored Indie Rock/Pop band led by Zach Condon. Beirut's music often parallels the exotic mysteries of world travel. Since Beirut's last album, 2007's the Flying Club Cup, sang a love-letter to France (with a 2009 stop-off in Mexico for the March of the Zapotec EP), many asked where his songs would voyage next, but few predicted the inward journey Condon takes on the Rip Tide, an album with the most introspective and memorable songs of his young career. Recorded in Upstate New York, Brooklyn and, of course, Condon's hometowns of Albuquerque and Santa Fe, the Rip Tide marks a distinct leaping-off point for Beirut.
