Lately I’ve been posting quite a bit of music through Blim.fm, a site that works with Twitter to post songs and videos found online to your Twitter followers. I love it, because when I hear a song I love on the radio or wherever, it takes me a bit to commit to buying it via iTunes. I’m fickle with my music, and I can hear a song that I love the first time around, just to find out that I loathe it after two or three listens.
But since some of you stubbornly refuse to tweet (Mikayla! Trent! Unamed reader!), I figured I’d post a video or track every now and then to lure you in to my indie music web. Or maybe just so you can take a break from listening to Thriller on repeat (ahem, Mikayla, cough, cough).
First up! This band is Beirut and the song is called Nantes. I can’t really describe the music style, so I’ll let Wikipedia do it for me:
Beirut is an American band. It began as the solo musical project of 23-year-old Santa Fe, New Mexico native Zachary Francis Condon, and later evolved into a band led by Condon. Their first performances were in May 2006, to support the release of their debut album, Gulag Orkestar. The music combines elements of Eastern European and folk with Western pop music.
Now if that doesn’t lure you in, take a listen.
