OH MY GOODNESS. THIS SONG HAS TAKEN OVER MY LIFE. I’m really replaying it and it made me feel the same way as when I was in the phase of replaying Summertime Clothes by Animal Collective.
I have always wanted to describe the feeling I get from listening to Beirut. Was thinking it’s both nostalgic and introspective but at the same time forward-looking. Productive introspection. Hah. But I was looking at their lyrics and read the comments and oh dear, that’s exactly how I feel!
(I’m rather surprised that I haven’t checked out this song and it’s from Gulag Orkestar. I missed it out because I only selectively downloaded their tracks when I first decided to listen to them.)
