Gypsy Road, Take Me Home

Beirut's gorgeous Balkan hymns light ukuleles and MP3 blogs aflame

Back at the Mercury, Condon announces that "Closing Song" will, indeed, be Beirut's last tune, and the sold-out crowd—which will thin noticeably for the Sunset Rubdown and Frog Eyes sets that follow—cries out with disapproval. As he retires his trumpet for the evening, it's obvious the crowd could've easily stood stock-still and absorbed much more. Almost as if, for a few moments, a group of drifters found a home in Zach Condon's music as well.
