Beirut: 'The Rip Tide' Full Album Stream

The Rip Tide is Beirut's third album and while each is different they all bear a vintage patina... all mixed up in a territory between new songs by an old soul and old songs by a new soul. Bandleader Zach Condon croons in a high murky vibrato, a voice that would sound highly misplaced singing anything but music with significant ties to the past such as that of Beirut.
