Gulag Orkestar, 2006

Beirut's first album was the brainchild of Zach Condon, who was only 19 when the album was released and became an overnight indie hit to his own—and others'—surprise.

Lon Gisland EP, 2007

This six-track album served as an enjoyable musical stopgap between Beirut's successful first album and a follow-up full-length album.

The Flying Club Cup, 2007

This skilled and fascinating sophomore album came out just months after Lon Gisland.

March of the Zapotec & Realpeople: Holland, 2009

Zach Condon kept up his global travels and shifting fascinations with this double EP recorded partially in Oaxaca, Mexico.
