Default Calexico



We don't really have a proper thread on this band (someone remind me to delete everything I posted older than 6 months) so why don't I just start one and ask if anyone's heard the latest album, Carried to dust? Because I have and I think I might fall in love with it...House of Valparaiso seems to be an early favorite...

Calexico - Two silver trees

Two silver trees wasn't bad. Might have to follow this one up.
Much better than that New Order tribute band you did lately.

mmm...you seem to be developing a pattern of listening to bands featuring two males together mate.

whysthatthen?

Lol, I'm pretty sure there's more than two people in the band, I'm not sure why there's only the two of them in the pic and the video... But they are rather fetching...*giggles like a schoolgirl*

Here's another sample of their work, from Feast of wire (2003) (fantastic album btw):

Calexico - Quattro (World drifts in)

Oh yes definitely, I've heard 4 and that one is definitely the best. If you're gonna get anything by them, get that...

Joey Burns – guitars and vocals
John Convertino – drums and percussion
Paul Niehaus – steel guitar
Jacob Valenzuela – keyboards, trumpet and vibraphone
Martin Wenk – accordion, guitar, synthesizers, trumpet and vibraphone
Volker Zander – standup bass

Obviously talented.

This is my little enthused write up of their gig which I attended some 2 and a half years ago...

Oh and yes, you should get their collaboration with Iron and wine, great stuff.

Hah. I'm kind of surprised to see a thread about these guys. I first got introduced to them through the movie, Collateral.
They wrote the song, "Guero Canelo", which appeared on the soundtrack.

Why surprised? They're a pretty big band in the indie/alternative community...:\
