Beirut's "Nantes" is one of the best songs of 2007.
Unlike other best songs of 2007 (*cou-"Paper Planes"-gh*), it has not been getting the cover/remix treatment it deserves.
Sepanta Mohseni brings together a cohesive a cappella version of the song with some sweet beat-boxing and distorted vocals. Doing it a cappella brings out the overwhelmingly vocal quality of Beirut's music, from Zach Condon's warbling vocals to the melodic sustain of the accordion and horns.
So give it a listen!
