BEIRUT "Goshen" MP3


It’s quite possible that the rained-on Northside Festival goers at McCarren Park in Brooklyn were lullabyed by Beirut’s new song “Goshen.” Being a solemn piano ballad, the song doesn’t stray too far from previous works. The horns, the marching band percussion and his emotive vocals still exist in harmony. If anything, there’s an almost more of a crooner direction (hey Michael Bubble isn’t that bad) taken in this track.

I wasn’t able to attend because I was too lazy. And the idea of standing in the rain, getting my shoes dirty, feeling the humidity on my arms late at night doesn’t spark my old heart enough to embrace the live setting. (It’s quite insane that I still have not seen Beirut live after having been a fan for more than five years now.) But my imagination is good enough to picture the kids glaring at Condon and company serenading them and them feeling shivers down the baby hairs on their almost “legal” necks.
