Calexico - Edge Of The Sun

Calexico - Edge Of The Sun

Calexico return with new album "Edge of The Sun" and it's not a moment too soon. While personally I prefer when they're full on Tex-Mex rather than doing straightforward (well for them anyway) rock, they do strike a great balance between the two here. The album features a ton of collaborators like Ben Bridwell from Band of Horses, Neko Case, Sam Beam from Iron & Wine to Gaby Moreno and Carla Morrison amongst others. The album opens with "Falling from the Sky" which shows they've added some keyboards or synth sounds, showcased even more on "Cumbia de Donde" and on "Tapping On The Line" there's even a beat track looping underneath so their sound is embracing a few different elements. Before we get carried away though, it's very much a Calexico album featuring plenty of tight harmonies (Joey Burns in fine form), beautiful strings and horns, Spanish Guitar, Americana (particularly on "Woodshed Waltz") and the uniq

Monsters of Folk - London - Troxy - 17/11/09

Well, what to say about this? The gig lasted for three hours and it was as epic and as enjoyable as I could have hoped for. Opened up with "Say Please" and "The Right Place" and from there on in they really managed to get the balancing act of each musician's back catalogue and the new songs right. I could honestly happily listen to M.Ward or Jim James singing for the rest of my life. I must admit my knowledge of Conor Oberst is quite limited, but enjoyed his performance at End of the Road 2008, and his work on the night, so should probably start digging deeper into his albums. Only downside of the gig was that it ended. Typically NME went with the headline about Oberst knocking over the piano at the end, probably the least memorable thing of the night, ah well. My highlight was the drummer being called Will Robinson (Lost in Space!!) he can sing as well, and "Whole Lotta' Losin'" in the encore. Below is the new video to "Say Please&qu
