Good Tunes: Beirut – Elephant Gun

I’ve always known about Beirut and their ultra-folky sound, but it wasn’t until I heard the song below {thank you Pandora!} where it peaked my interest enough to research the rest of their music.  You’ll understand why with this song, it reminds me of the circus. Enjoy!

Happy to hear they’ve got another album on the way considering it’s been since 2007’s The Flying Club Cup. To hear the first single “East Harlem”, click here. {via pitchfork.com}
