The raw, honest sound of Little Beirut‘s Fear of Heaven is pure from beginning to end. On this killer album, the quartet from Portland displays a Supergroup sound channeling the vibe of an amalgamation of Coldplay and Death Cab for Cutie, with less Hollywood production and more outright musical talent and execution. Fear of Heaven is their second self-released album, giving them the benefits of full creative control, which breaks through clearly in the unadulterated musical elements and the straight forward, thought provoking lyrics. It’s not every day you come a across an album you feel you are hearing exactly as the band intended it. Click for More on the Album & How to Get It.
