The Bicyclist - Episode 3: Test Ride

Episode 3 opens at the intersection of N Mississippi and N Graham in North Portland near our favorite taco joint, Por Que No? Taqueria. The main actor reminds me of actor Zach Braff.

New Music - Beirut

Wow. A big thanks to Joe who gave me the heads up on this life-changing band - Beirut, from the musical genius of Albuquerque's Zach Condon (full All Music Guide bio can be found here).  Zach is a trumpeter, among other instruments, and composer. Apparently, he gained an appreciation for eastern European and gypsy music from earlier travels to the region. The music is bold, big, loud, and infectious. Gypsy-ish rhythms with big brass orchestrations blend to create an irresistible unique sound that everyone should hear. I was instantly hooked after Joe sent me an mp3 of their song "Postcards from Italy." Absolutely amazing. The media player on the left should allow you to preview the song.

Since the release of the LP in 2006, he has since released an EP, Lon Gisland, which is also worth listening to.
