Postcards from Italy by Beirut

Earlier today I had a craving for some Beirut, so I decided to look up this old video he did for Postcards from Italy, which is from his last first full length, Gulag Orkestar. This is hands down my favorite song off the album, so I was happy to see that he had made an equally great video for it. The video features a bunch of home video footage from all over the place, but mostly it gives you the sense of an amazing summer, or maybe thinking back on an amazing life. Either way, it makes me really happy to watch it. Plus that combination of ukulele and horns gives me goosebumps every time.
