Scenic World by Beirut


No video for this puppy.

Beirut play a quick ditty that is not indicative of their style. A simple drum machine, and accordion is all you need. This is off their first album, Gulag Orkestar.

This is an American band who play with an Eastern European folk flavour. Most of their music feature a mandolin, trumpet and accordion. They’ve released 2 studio albums and 5 EPs. They are also huge in Brazil.
