music that parallels epicness

"Owen Cook directs and animates Beirut’s “La Llorona” off of their recent double EP, March Of The Zapotec/Realpeople Holland. The cinematography could easily pass for an Oscar-nominated digital short, though “La Llorona” will more likely be appreciated by the MTV2-insomniac-YouTube-loving set (assuming this alleged audience actually exists). With fluid illustrations of an uncomplicated, subtly poignant time, the video is an apt interpretation of Beirut’s sad yet celebratory waltz. The lingering notes in “La Llorona” seem left over from this simpler, more provincial era" (Et Musique Pour Tous)

Also to note: I'm a sucker for a wicked horns section.

La Llorona - Beirut


So the album doesn't come out until May 4th (in the UK... longer in the US?) but Peaches new album is being produced by none other than Peaches herself and the preview tracks are amazing! She supposedly leaked the three tracks herself, and can be also previewed on her myspace. More is certainly worth checking out, especially if you haven't yet been turned on to her durty style.
