MP3: 2 New Beirut Tracks, LP Release Date, Tour

Though Beirut has released these tunes into the wild as a limited-edition 7″ (on sweet, colored vinyl no less), on August 30th they’ll be released on their new full length in four years, entitled The Rip Tide. Judging by the opening tracks alone, I’ll be pre-ordering this bad boy first chance I get. Just lovely.
