I'm really digging Beirut right now (love how they play uke tunes different from traditional) and was just wondering if anyone knew any other bands like them?:confused:

Haha - No other bands. When they say original music, they mean 'original.'

But yeah - from their myspace, Influences = Jacques Brel Magnetic Fields. The smiths, Klezmer, the kocani orkestar ( and any balkan brass music) ,crooners. Serge Gainsbourg, Yves Montand. caetano Veloso

So i guess you could start there.

In terms of interesting instrumentation? Arcade Fire and 60-70's Brazilian pop (not Bossa Nova)

For better recommendations maybe you can try www.pandora.com (free internet radio) and search using Beirut to create a station.
