Beirut side project Soft Landing announce new record on Ba Da Bing for October

So, a bassist and an accordion player walk into a bar, um, Brazil. Okay, they probably flew into Brazil, this being real life and not a lame joke your uncle told you before he tried to pull a quarter out of your ear, with the aforementioned bass and accordion players being members of Beirut. What happened is this: after wrapping Beirut’s month-long tour of Brazil, Paul Collins (bass) and Perrin Cloutier (accordion) joined forces with Mike Lawless to form Soft Landing. The group of “Jorge Ben wannabes,” as Soft Landing describe themselves, have a debut album due for release on October 5 via Ba Da Bing.
