Calexico, Recorded Live In Concert

For Calexico, a sublimely cool mariachi-folk-rock band from Tucson, the cliche holds true: Change is a constant. Led by Joey Burns and John Convertino, the group released its debut album (Spoke) in 1996, and has been changing up its sound, style and supporting players ever since. Click the link above to hear Calexico perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Carried to Dust, the band's sixth album, provides an excellent showcase for Calexico's moody, genre-bending sound, as well as some new and returning contributors: Sam Beam of Iron and Wine, Pieta Brown, Doug McCombs of Tortoise, Amparo Sanchez and Jairo Zava.
