Calexico The Thread That Keeps Us Album CoverThe undeniable sounds of long-established and durable Tucson act Calexico are all over their ninth album, with the core duo of Joey Burns and John Convertino and their talented band offering a cohesive group experience.

Out of their comfort zone of the Arizona desert, they recorded this album in a house-turned-studio called “The Phantom Ship” on the edge of the Northern California coast. The open seascape has found its way into the genre blend of Arizona-meets-Mexico border sounds.

With less polish and more grit, The Thread That Keeps Us moves from funky rock ‘n’ roll to slow folk musings, imbued with mariachi and a hint of country.
This is true Americana.

The Thread That Keeps Us is out Jan 26 via Spunk.
