Album Review: March Of The Zapotec/Realpeople Holland

A fantastic combo of old and new...Beirut released a double EP in record stores today, titled March Of The Zapotec / Realpeople Holland. They split it in half, so that the first disc is classic Beirut, and the second disc is an electronic side that is some sort of solo project for singer Zach Condon. What’s the outcome? A fantastic combo of old and new. For your listening pleasure, I’ve decided to post a sample song from each disc. “The Shrew” is from March Of The Zapotec. Full of tubas, trumpets, and other various horns, there is something about its simplicity that makes it great. “My Night With The Prostitute From Marseille “ is arguably the best song of the dual EP set. It’s dancey and joyous, with a steady bass drum and some catchy synth to seal the deal. I highly recommend that you go out now and download the full release. Enjoy.
