Not one to disappoint within the realms of easy listening/pop rock music, Little Beirut shines again with an outstanding, solid third album. The band consisting of Hamilton Sims, Edwin Paroissien, Alex Inman, and John Hulcher released Fear of Heaven on September 4 and are fast establishing themselves as, possibly, the next biggest band from the indie rock universe – Portland, Oregon.
Having already won the hearts of critics with their second album, High Dive, Little Beirut explodes again with FOH. It is an album easily played over and over with beautiful, mesmerizing melodies and sensitive rock ballads. With the direction of producers Jeff Stuart and “the Stephen King of indie-pop,” Chris Robley, FOH elevates Little Beirut as a stronger, assured musical unity that’s staying true to their sound.
