Beirut is an American indie-rock and world music band which was originally the solo musical project of Zach Condon (born Zachary Francis Condon in Santa Fe, New Mexico) and later expanded into a band. The band's first performances were in New York, in May 2006, to support the release of their debut album, Gulag Orkestar.
Condon recorded before Beirut was established: when he was fifteen and under the name of Realpeople, he made an electronic record, fashioned after his love for The Magnetic Fields. Read more on Last.fm

Our friends Mouse on Mars released this incredibly cool record, check it out here:
Ben Lanz's LANZ Projects just released "Auckland" along with a stunning video by Andrew Ondrejcak.
Ben says: "I was in Auckland a couple of years ago, playing a festival and in sound check I got super excited about these drones and blips that I was getting through my synth chain. Over the next couple of days there, I worked on a sort of electro tone poem based off of these sounds and inspired by the landscape and energy of the city. Back home in my basement, the song just sort of happened, the bass and drums laying in perfectly with the sonic postcard that I had brought back from Auckland."
