Sooooo happy. My five day weekend is just about to kick off and I couldn't think of a better way to start. Managed to not thoroughly embarrass myself while speaking in class AND a new Beirut song + video. The song is "La Llorona" (the weeping woman in English) and will appear on his March of the Zapotec EP which is due out next month. According to Stereogum, the song was inspired by "the legend about a woman who killed her children then herself after she was rejected by a man and now spends her time as a weeping ghost, wandering in search of the kids." Neat.
