Calexico - Live Concert - 2012

by Dennis Elsas

With influences from Mexican music and Western Americana, the Tuscon-based band Calexico has been weaving their "desert noir" soundscape for almost 20 years now. Their eighth album, Algiers, comes out today and was inspired by New Orleans, where it was recorded. To celebrate, the band recently performed an FUV Live set at Hill Country Live here in New York City, and I had a chance to talk with Joey Burns about why the band decided on New Orleans and how they all balance being in Calexico with a long list of other projects.
