Well, I want to start something new. In correlation with Twitter’s #musicmonday, I thought I’d write up a post on a song I’ve been listening to. It certainly makes tweeting about a song easier for me. I’ll either throw in a music video or a music player plugin, and I’ll try to dig up a download link. So, without further ado, the first song I’m going to review ever is…
The song is really interesting to listen to, to be honest. It has so much going on at the same time. Just listening to it, I hear an accordion, a piano, some vocals, a glockenspiel, and a drumkit. You’d think all these different instruments would just make some sort of elaborate cacophony, but Beirut makes it work pretty damn well. Check it out;
If you want to download the song, you can download it here.
Its a good song… Its a little short for my tastes, and the ending leaves something to be desired, but its still a fantastic song, and is definitely wort the listen. Check it out when you get a chance.
I’d like to say a little bit about the album. The album, “Dark was the Night,” is a compilation album done as an HIV/AIDS benefit fundraiser, and is jam-packed with awesome songs. If you get a chance, get the album; its going to a good cause, after all. I believe they’re also auctioning tickets to their next concert, so check out their website here.
