Beirut - Postcards from Italy

I am in love. Maybe it's the epicness. I love harmonies and layers. And horns sail you wistfully through to the next verse. This beautiful mingling of Latin sounding beats and indie rock vocals is haunting. This piece of music was written when a band mate picked up a discarded old Italian postcard. And found it's old image and Italian text inspiring.
