Featured Release This Week From Calexico + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Feb 26, 2018

One advantage of flying under the radar of the mainstream, is that a good band can continue to produce quality work for years without being forced to meet the expectations of the masses, and perhaps accelerate toward premature burn-out.  Okay, that's just a theory.  But Calexico, the long-running indie band from Tucson, Arizona seem to bear it out.  They've been around for over twenty years, and have just released one of the best albums of their career, The Thread That Keeps Us.  The record showcases Calexico's expert blend of Tex-Mex Americana and desert indie rock, all in the service of strong songwriting.  ​
