I can't believe Lewis gave this a 1.5! "No Dice" makes me sweat.

The first disc is status quo for Beirut, at a consistent level of quality but never particularly interesting. The second disc is awesome though; the electronica really adds a nice touch to Zach Condon's usual flair.

Beirut can never really hold my attention, so March of the Zapotec being as short as it is allows me to appreciate everything he's doing without losing focus. Holland is more my speed - My Wife Lost in the Wild shatters my comically large glasses.

This would be so much better if this was only "March of the Zapotec." Beirut needs to leave the terrible bedroom synthpop at home and stay with them hornnnssss.

Sort of an EP and sort of not. Its really a split EP featuring 2 different bands. The first half, March of the Zapotec is pretty much what weve heard before from previous albums albeit not quite as good. However the second half featuring The Real People Holland Is outstanding. It shows Zach expanding on his established sound, using synth and electronics to drive some of the quicker tempo songs. Very promising stuff.

This EP seems to be the tale of two discs. While March of the Zapotec doesn't come close to living up to the expectations set by Gulag Orkestar or The Flying Club Cup, the Realpeople Holland portion (Condon's electronic side-project) does a remarkable job innovating on Beirut's classic sound. Tracks like "Venice" and "No Dice" capitalize on the haunting vocal melodies Beirut fans know and love, but wonderfully introduce electronic beats that give the music an entirely new feel. Luckily, the captivating second half of the album fully compensates for the stale and unimpressive first half.
