Addendum: The Rip Tide

The fact that Zach Condon likely denies the existence of the American Midwest and Southeast is frustrating no doubt, but he's almost made of for it with the latest music video off of The Rip Tide.

Houmam Abdallah's video is a striking companion to Beirut's titular track. Influenced by DalĂ­, Seurat, and JMW Turner, the work, a living painting, is simple but stunning and I can't deny I've watched it on loop far too many times.

Not that you can ever have enough Beirut.
