Unlike Zach Condon’s last effort as Beirut, The Rip Tide takes Beirut’s marching drums, clunky synths, brass band instruments, and accordion into more experimental terrain. March of the Zapotec was like a wild gypsy ride complete with wedding band and funeral procession. The Rip Tide can’t be contained in simple parameters. Condon’s vision is wide, his arrangements broad, from the field-band brass roar of “Sante Fe” to the chugging, 1890s feel of “East Harlem,” to the orchestral grandeur of the title track.
