Beirut – “Riptide, The” – [Pompeii]

The world flavors of Balkan folk and Western pop mix together quite nicely on this CD from a band that started with Zach Condon in Santa Fe, NM. Pump organs, horns, glockenspiel, cello, ukulele, doublebass, farfisa, and other instrumentation combine with the pleasing vocals to create melodies at times jaunty and upbeat or more serious and ballad-like. This is a diamond in the rough.
