the Tuesday Song of the Week

This week's selection isn't for everyone, but if you can stand it, it's worth a listen:

'Prenzlauerberg' - Beirut

According to AllMusic.com, Beirut's music is a mash of Balkan folk and electronica.

Here's some REAL Balkan folk.  It's crazy fast, not lumbering as the piece above: 

'Briu' - Taraf de Haïdouks

By the by, if you ever find yourself in the City of Bothersome Love, and you want to hear some kickin' brass-heavy and BO awesome Balkan music, see if you can find where and when the West Philadelphia Orchestra is playing.  Here's their website: http://wpo.westphiladelphiaorchestra.com/
