The perfect soundtrack for a summer roadtrip in an old car across Death Valley.

Deeper & richer than their debut, 'Spoke', their sophomore is a wonderfully textured & cinematic listen that gives us a really good flavour of what's to come from the prolific band. Calexico's musical textures are woven out of a dazzling array of instruments & styles, including mariachi trumpets, countrified pedal steel, Latin jazz percussion & carnival organ, just to name a few. The songs move at siesta speed, casually looping & loping along, never getting overheated. fans of beirut would do well to check this classic album out.
