A new song has surfaced from ZACH CONDON, the forefront of theskyreport favorite BEIRUT. And solo, it's more of an electro affair. But all glory is not lost, as horns (a signature Beirut sound) deliver a profound punch on the second half of this track.
The song, a gorgeous electro refrain titled 'Venice', appears on a new compilation for The Believer (Magazine), compiled by Pitchfork Media's Brandon Stosuy. The collection also features rare tracks from GRIZZLY BEAR, DEERHUNTER, OF MONTREAL, YACHT, THE BLOW, THE TWILIGHT SAD, SUFJAN STEVENS, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY and I'M FROM BARCELONA.

In other Zach Condon news, he recently joined Ed Droste and GRIZZLY BEAR onstage at the recent Primavera Sound Festival in Spain. I would have died to be there.
