Calexico - Algiers
Release Date: September 10, 2012
To observe that Calexico have, on recent albums, become noticeably more stone-faced and sensibly adult might invite the question: when were they not? Well, the Arizona ensembleâ™s marriage of desolate country-rock and mariachi music never pitched itself at the youth – but there used to be blaring trumpets and daring attitude too. ‘Algiersâ™, their seventh album, is far less surface-level appealing, but the sad twang of a pedal steel and Joey Burnsâ™ rich lyrical imagery draw you in, and depth and craftsmanship is slowly revealed. ‘Paraâ™ might produce curious converts, if only for sounding weirdly like ‘Paranoid Androidâ™, while ‘Puertoâ™ is the border-jumping highlight.
