Calexico Carried To Dust LP
TAS Rated 3.5/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sonics in the October 2008 Issue of The Absolute Sound!
There's always been intrigue and adventure at the heart of Calexico. Joey
Burns and John Convertino have constantly imbued their music with an
unparalleled sense of drama, calling upon the myths and iconography of the
American West and its Spanish speaking neighbor Mexico. "Carried To Dust"
represents the pinnacle of their achievement, a thrilling and moving journey
through a landscape that draws upon the modern world as much as it does the
decayed reminders of times past, stumbling upon unexpected delights whilst
always moving forward with a pioneering sense of purpose.
"Sonically, the album has a natural soundstage and windswept feel, as if recorded in sparsely populated border towns, the sun hanging high in the sky and baking the equipment." - Andy Downing, The Absolute Sound, October 2008
