Today I ...did absolutely nothing. But I discovered a new band.
Beirut's smoothly pulsing Balkan melodies have stolen my heart these past few days, or weeks I daresay. They fuse accordians and trumpets, tambourines and male vocals, to create something completely unique that I never imagined I would love. Seriously, listen to one song and you will understand, because in each of us is a longing to root ourselves into the cultures of the world.
