Elephant Gun (5:47)

Cover of Lon Gisland EP

From Lon Gisland EP and 13 other releases

Zach Condon, the man who is Beirut, is so absurdly talented and steeped in obscure European folk for a 21-year-old that it’s not surprising certain other musicians want to punch him. ‘Elephant Gun’ is yet more entirely charming, thoroughly odd marvelousness to stoke those envious blazes. Little more than mandolin, brass, military drumming and some gorgeous multi-layered harmonies, it is as odd and joyous as waking up off the coast of France in a yacht you never knew you owned.

If I was young, I'd flee this town
I'd bury my dreams underground
As did I, we drink to die
We drink tonight
