American band, Beirut is a very unique group which utilizes a wide range of world instruments. Beirut originally started as solo project for Zach Condon but quickly grew into a full band by 2006. Their fifth album, No No No, was released September 2015 and was in my top three albums released in 2015. No No No has a very different sound in comparison to their previous albums while still retaining the overall essence which Beirut has developed over the years. The tempo and atmosphere is a bit more upbeat and less morose/somber. The track 'Perth' has a whimsical sound I just love to listen to, while still maintaining their drawn-out sound. The notes played by the keyboard gives an optimistic energy, especially when coupled with the horn. The hollow sound of the drums produced in the song Gibraltar adds a vibe I have yet to experience with this band. This album provided a whole new side of Beirut which I didn't know existed. Definitely worth a listen, even if you do not purchase on vinyl.
