'The Flying Club Cup'
The Flying Club Cup is the second full-length from Beirut, which is essentially the brainchild of Zach Condon, and expect it to be the indie hit of the fall. Each song unfolds with its own mini-orchestra, where brass instruments intertwine with a gorgeously subtle accordion, and Condons vocals parade somewhere between wavering and elegant. It may not win over classical music purists, but like the best of the Decemberists, Beirut is rock n roll thats fit for the chamber hall. Todd Martens
