We've been Huge fans of Calexico for a long time. They've made WFUV's Best Albums Of The Year List, 6 times! - Including last year, for their 7th full length album, Algiers.
Their latest album was a bit of a departure for this Tucson, AZ band, known for creating lushly orchestrated music with a strong Southwest and Latin flair. Algiers has a heavy New Orleans influence but it does maintain that same beautiful sound we've come to expect from Calexico.
We're pretty excited that Calexico will be making their way back to the our neck of the woods soon.
So in celebration of these upcoming shows, we're dipping into the FUV Vault tonight at 9 for FUV Live. We'll listen back to a session with Calexico from last year when I I hosted them at Hill Country BBQ a month before the release of their album, Algiers.
You can check out videos of some of the perfomances from that night here & listen to the whole concert here.
