It remains to be seen, but don't be surprised if Zach Condon treats his Beirut project as both a home base and means to explore. Condon comes off as a curious musician fascinated by music from all over the world, but also is the most at home with just strings, piano, horns and his affective voice. Some releases may reflect a journey, like his last, the double ep March of the Zapotec and Real People Holland, while others may be a return home. The Rip Tide is a home record, and Condon sounds even more comfortable with his idiosyncratic sound then ever before. We can't wait for him to take his next journey, and when that happens, we'll eagerly await his return home.
