Today's Brew | Beirut

type of music: folk with a gypsy influence

I'm late on this one as well, but thought I pass it along here as well.
Beirut is the creation of Zach Condon (a 19-year-old Albuquerque native), with some help of course from a few other folks. But quite impressive for someone who's still in his teens.
The amazing part of this album is there are no guitars involved. Instead other stringed instruments are used and the music has a bit of a gypsy influence (accordion included).

mp3: Beirut- "Postcards From Italy"
mp3: Beirut- "Mount Wroclai (Idle Days)"
