2012, Anti

Some 22 years since they first formed, Calexico have added yet another successful musical adventure to their list in the way of Algiers. You might think that after six studio albums and a suitcase of tour CDs, collaborations with the likes of Victoria Williams, Iron & Wine, Willie Nelson, Roger McGuinn and Nancy Sinatra, and soundtrack work to boot, there wasn't much more they could achieve. But you'd be wrong. The feel of Algiers is recognizably classic Calexico but their style has been revitalized and reborn by the experience of recording in New Orleans. Conscious of the clich├ęs 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.
