The one really cool thing, I think, is the cover of the album. I don't know how true this is (because I haven't really seen anything on it), but Vanessa said the guy found the photograph in-between the pages of a book in a library in Germany. I think it's a pretty cool photo, kinda like a slice of life moment in time thing.
It is written in the booklet that the front and back photos were found in a library in Leipzig, torn out of a book. The original photographer was unknown to the creators of the album while it was recorded, but has since been discovered to be Sergey Chilikov.
In any case, this track, "Elephant Gun", is actually from Beirut's follow-up EP, "Lon Gisland". I love the opening line, "If I was young, I'd flee this town, I'd bury my dreams underground". It just hits me perfectly, I can't explain it, it's just a great song. You can check out other tracks on Beirut's myspace page and on the official site.
