I feel like I missed the boat with Beirut—I never really listened to the New Mexico band in my teen years, and no one has a Beirut phase at 25. Their music sounds like the early 2000s—lots of tight stringed instruments, horns, a quavering vocal. The band is touring in support of their brand-new fifth LP, Gallipoli. Supporting act Helado Negro, aka Roberto Carlos Lange, produces music that makes me feel like I’m the creamiest, most delicious scoop of ice cream that’s melting in the hot summer sun. This is a good thing. It’s lush, experimental, and a bit weird. He sings in a low voice that makes it seem like he’s telling you a secret. Listen closely.
