Two Live Beirut Tracks and a New Glass Candy Demo

Free Indie posted these two live Beirut tracks last week and they've been burning a hole in my pocket all weekend. I missed Mr. Condon last time he was in Mpls (at the Triple Rock mind you) and judging by these boots, I won't miss him again.

The second track that has been on heavy rotation is the new Glass Candy demo the band just posted on their MySpace page last week. I've been a big Glass Candy fan for a long time, but to be honest, this new track has missed the mark. The music and instrumentation is top notch, but the vocals are clearly out of tune -- correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure I'm not. Otherwise, I'm down with the Blondie revivalism, but I think they need to get a new vocal take to spearhead this one.
