I´ve always been hooked on Calexico. Their dusty stuff mixed with a bottle of caramba. A lonely guitar in love with the mariachi, a folk-country band who never holds their corner. Desert noir.

Algiers, the sixth album from Joey Burns´ and John Convertino´s band, is recorded in New Orleans. The town made the album, a rebirth for these mavericks. I like the way Calexico makes an effort, stretches out and write pretty spectacular songs.

It´s easy listening for the wicked.
