Dropping out of high school always seems like the wrong route to go. Dropping out of high school, traveling Europe, manifesting in as much culture and music as you possibly can, though, seems oddly like a route I'd rather take over college. Not only is Final Fantasy a video game and a band, but Beirut goes a step further by being both a band and the capital city of Lebanon! What awesome homophones. Beirut has an uncanny ability to make guitars unmissed. Quoted from his myspace, the instruments used are as follows: a trumpet from Paris, farfisa organ, accordion, piano, ukelele, mandolin, glockenspiel, violin, cello, tambourine, an air powered organ, a congo drum, and a broken microphone (stolen from the University of New Mexico). If you like sounds from intruments you've never heard of, like me, you'll probably enjoy Beirut.
