CALEXICO - ALGIERS - CD New

Anti/Epitaph

22 years and 6 albums since forming as a band, Calexico's latest album ALGIERS is recognizably classic Calexico but their style has been revitalized and reborn by the experience of recording in New Orleans. Conscious of the cliches that can sometimes afflict acts working in a city with such a strong identity, band members Joey Burns, John Convertino and producer Craig Schumacher chose to avoid the bigger, better known studios in favor of a smaller, more intimate setting. The result of this decision is arguably the most exciting and accessible record Calexico have made.
