“Santa Fe” (Live On Fallon) (Video)

    Zach Condon brought Beirut  to David Letterman’s show a few weeks back, and he repeated that trick for Jimmy Fallon last night. “Santa Fe” is the second song on The Rip Tide, and it’s got all the ingredients that we’ve commonly come to expect from Beirut—a jaunty groove, earnest vocals from Condon, and that familiar mix of Balkan folk music and indie-rock. It’s always fascinating to see how Condon puts his songs together, and “Santa Fe” is no exception, with every part slotting into place with just the right weight to give the track its momentum.
