Port of Call

Here's a new track from the forthcoming Beirut album, The Rip Tide. Sure to make all of the critic's and blogosphere's End of Year lists, along the likes of Bon Iver's self-titled release, the album is already riding strong, with the release of the first single, East Harlem. I happen to like Port of Call, the album closer, which feels like it could easily have been on the band's 2006 Gulag Orkestar release.
