Check out the Tucson Weekly cover story on Calexico by Linda Ray!
“It’s too early to tag ‘Edge Of The Sun’ as the band’s masterpiece, but song for song, it’s the most textured and dimensional Calexico record” — NPR
“At its best, the music on “Edge of the Sun” is retro, modern and timeless.” — Associated Press
“Calexico sounds best when it does what it’s always done: Tell stories, translate the American Southwest into song, and have a damn good time doing it. And these are the best bits of Edge Of The Sun.” — The AV Club
“Recording in Mexico City, they’ve turned nearly every track here into a collaboration, jumping from Dylan-esque country to cumbia to spaghetti-Western to mariachi to ska, and by the time they’ve finished, they’ve managed to write one of the hookiest, most-satisfying albums of their career.” — Magnet
“… the Arizona ensemble has swerved through freewheeling detours into indie rock, Tex-Mex, and Americana, with flourishes of jazz, soul, and country along the way. “Edge of the Sun,” the band’s new album on Anti-, is no less adventurous, but it feels curated in a way that sets it apart from previous releases.” — Boston Globe
“Building a cohesive album from such eclectic source material is no easy task, but Calexico, drawing on the 25-year partnership between Burns and multi-instrumentalist John Convertino, put on a clinic.” — Consequence of Sound
