Single Serving: Beirut – Beluga

We’ve never made any secret of our love for Santa Fe, New Mexico’s Beirut (a.k.a. Zach Condon) here on Musical Pairings @ eating/sf. “Postcards From Italy” was our first dance at our wedding. There are a sizable number of non-album Beirut recordings available in the dark recesses of the Internet, and my personal favorite of those tracks is the beautiful cut “Beluga.” In fact, I’m of the opinion that “Beluga” may be as beautiful and lovely as anything Beirut has ever released. The track slowly simmers along featuring a haunting piano melody and the sound of the rolling sea to accompany Condon’s mournful singing. If you like his other albums, this is a track you’ll want to add to your library.
