    Zach Condon – the Balkan-blasting phenom behind Beirut – has tapped October 9th as the release date for what will be a very highly anticipated second album. Supposedly titled The Flying Club Cup, the record will be made possible by Ba Da Bing Records, and is expected to expand upon the folksy, Eastern-European swing of his rather fetching debut, Gulag Orkestar, as well as the Lon Gisland EP. In addition to employing bouts of string orchestrations, Condon has enlisted some help to expand his musical palette – specifically Owen Pallett of Final Fantasy. The album will also curiously include a track 00. I’m a bit baffled, but hey…lets go with it. - David Pitz
