2-Minute Review Beruit - Gallipoli

Posted by Indie Vinyl Den on


The horniest guy in indie folk music is back! Zac Condon and his band Beirut have released the fifth record, and it kicks some brass (see what I did there?) Gallipoli is the title of the new effort, and it’s another solid release from Beirut. As a whole, the record is full of Spring flowering pop. It feels light and happy like 2015’s No No No. Condon’s voice sounds like a wind instrument, maybe a French horn, flowing, meandering, yet forceful when it’s required. “Gauze für Zah” and “Landslide” have the trademark sound, but still fresh as the melodies are new. On a few songs, the synths get in the way of an otherwise delightful listen, but not a turn-off as much as it seems unnecessary. My one complaint is that like No No No, this record is short in the mid-40-minute range. Maybe it is that I do not want it to end, but it is perhaps best left wanting more.
