If Quentin Tarantino hired a Spanish band to create a Matadors theme to be used in a mafia movie, you'd have Beirut. (aka 19 year old Zach Condon from New York).

I had my first listen to Beirut this morning via KEXP and had a chuckle when the DJ had a tough time describing them prior to playing their track, The Gulag Orkestar.

Their album, Gulag Orkestar, is available now via Ba Da Bing!
