Since the release of Gulang Orkestar which was constructed in a teenagers New Mexico bedroom in 2006, Beirut, aka Zach Condon, has become a household name.
Six months of recording has led to lush and charming The Flying Club Cup, a love letter to French culture, fashion, history, and music. Most of the album was created at a nondescript Albuquerque office space, aka A Hawk and a Hacksaw's practice room; Heather Trost plays violin and viola on three songs. Engineering and production assistance came from Griffin Rodriguez (A Hawk and a Hacksaw, Man Man). Additional recording was done with Owen Pallet at the masonic church studio owned by the Arcade Fire.
