Beirut, “Elephant Gun” - This has always been one of my favorite Beirut songs, summing up all the wistful, celebratory and melancholy grace that makes Zach Condon’s music so powerfully charming. However, I didn’t realize there was an official music video until a few minutes ago, while I was looking for a good quality version of this tune to post. I really wish I hadn’t. It is. Fucking. Terrible. Like a parody of what a Beirut video should be, complete with pretentious “bohemian” dancers, soulful surfside flugelhorning and amateur CGI. If you enjoy this beautiful song, please do not watch it.
