“As we began working on it, we started inviting people and it was a natural thing,” explains frontman Joey Burns. Calexico’s colleagues and cronies, including Case, Bridwell, Sam Beam (Iron & Wine), and Nick Urata (DeVotchKa), help them dial up the energy with feisty vocals and esoteric instrumental flourishes. Burns sees his band’s ninth album as “coming from the direction of darkness seeking light, or riding the line between both.” Building a cohesive album from such eclectic source material is no easy task, but Calexico, drawing on the 25-year partnership between Burns and multi-instrumentalist John Convertino, put on a clinic.
