With Zach Condon, everything's unlikely. Or rather, everything's unique. What storyteller, no matter how imaginative, how hallucinatory, could have invented such a character, an American, raised on Balkan music, deformed country-folk, luxuriant pop and great French chanson? The compositions of the Beirut leader have the allure of mini-operas, not drinking songs for sailors or Red Star hooligans... So while the "Romany brass band" gimmick and its cortège of clichés might drive one to drink at best, or at worst, to imagine oneself in a Kusturica film, on the The Flying Club Cup it adorns songs which have more in common with the Magnetic Fields, Divine Comedy or Rufus Wainwright than Goran Bregovic... On the tracks of this second album from October 2017, the French influence is still clear: Nantes, Cherbourg, Un dernier verre (pour la route), La Banlieue and Cliquot are all nods at a France that so fascinated this American, who was then aged 21. But not just that. There are floods of fando, outbreaks of tango, visceral passages, melodies that are closer to the soul than to the earth. And Beirut covers the whole earth. All of it. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
