Beirut… And no not the largest city in Lebanon. I love Beirut… Devoted fan right here. Upon first listen March of the Zapotec & Realpeople: Holland is not my favorite album from the talented Zach Condon and friends. Now, that being said it is good… I really do like almost every song on the album. I guess maybe the Realpeople tracks slant the album a bit, it is just an entirely different sound and I fail to see how they connect. Needless to say I am just a bit disappointed… But that is OK because like I said this is only the first listen, I need to digest it a little more. I know individual tracks already stand out  like La Llorona, The Akara and My Night With The Prostitute From Marseille (an awesome name for a song I might add). I highly recommend adding the album to your music collection – No Dice.

Only a little taste to entice you to go and purchase the album or see them live, an amazing show indeed.

    I played flying club,gulag & & more last afternoon; March seems a natural enough progression to me. Might be too much foreign band & not enough ‘songs’ for some.

    The horns on March of the Zapotec are amazing!
