Summary: Surprise! Yes, we realize it has not been a full two weeks since our last update, but we decided we want to have a few episodes under our belt before we start to get strict about things around here. :] Thus, this time we're giving you four tracks - 01 "Elephant Gun" by Beirut, 02 "Rhineland (Heartland)" by Beirut, 03 "Glory" by Essie Jain, 04 "Disgrace" by Essie Jain. We may be a little biased, but we cannot help but admit that this update has some pretty great stuff. So where are these songs from? The first is off of Beirut's newest Lon Gisland EP. Out just last week, Williamsburg's lovely Independent Record Store, Sound Fix, says that it "puts to rest any fears that Zach Condon [mastermind behind Beirut] was a one-hit wonder." We're inclined to agree. The second track is off of Beirut's first release, Gulag Orkestar. The last two are from a new addition to Ba Da Bing!: the honey-voiced British ex-patriot Essie Jain. Her debut album, We Made This Ourselves, is officially out February 13th of this year. There is a great Dusted feature that showcases just how charming "London's latest gift to the Big Apple" is - we think you'll love her as much as we do. Look out for more soon and we hope you enjoy!
