song of the week.



"beirut" may possibly be one of the last great talents of the past decade, in my opinion..of course. 'postcards from italy' is a truly exceptional song off of the album, gulag orkestar. the plucking of the ukelele and the voice of, beirut's 'zack condon' is absolute perfection. the feeling that director, 'almaharel' has raided a few different families of their home videos is the perfect balance of private, intimate moments. i can rave about this song until the sun rises and sets again, but just listening to the first thirty seconds anyone can realize just how i fell in love with this song.
