Tuesday’s Jam of the Day: Beirut

This past week Beirut released a stunning video for “The Rip Tide”, the title track from their 2011 album. The video is stunning, truly stunning and is an excellent example of when a music video production finds the intersection point of music and experience, sending your eyes and mind on a beautiful and memorable ocean voyage, capturing the essence of the song and depicting/completing the band’s view and expression..

Zach Condon was quoted saying,
“I always felt that “The Rip Tide” wasn’t fully able to project its own ambitions in song form.. no matter how it was performed or recorded, it felt contained by sound alone… the product brought the song somewhere that I had only been able to describe to myself…”
