Beirut – The Flying Club Cup


You wouldn’t believe this early twenty something hails from the good old US of A because his sound is ridiculously European and flavoured. It is an amazing achievement at his tender age that he releases such a stunning and cultured album of tunes – what amazes me more is his mastering of many of the instruments on this record.

The album itself covers alot of Balkan territory utilizing anything from brass instruments to full blown string arrangements. It is somewhat of a refreshing blast from the past and takes you on a wonderful journey – his voice is equally amazing and powerful with a passionate and evocative pull for the listener.
