Recent Press Quotes:
“From opener ‘Victor Jara’s Hand’ to the sunset afterglow of ‘Contention City’, it’s an evocative soundscape.” – The Guardian (UK)
“The best damn thing you hear this year.” – Blurt
“A beauty from start to finish.” – Paste
“Joey Burns and John Convertino’s sonic translations of dust-caked mythologies and hostile sandscapes modernize and polish everyday narratives into gleaming vignettes… Bouncing from South American political icons to snowy Russian cities, Carried to Dust’s songs travel a trail that seems carved out of ancient echoes.” – Spin
“Restraint, skill, rage at injustice and sudden flowering into melody – it’s Calexico’s best formula.” – Dusted
“It may be the band’s best album. It’s an elegantly produced collection of songs, with some wonderfully haunting moments.” – NPR
The new record ‘Carried to Dust,‘ is now out in all territories, on Quarterstick in North America, City Slang in Europe, via Traffic in Japan, and on Spunk in Australia.
So the reviews have been stellar : Record of the month 4 stars (UNCUT), ‘an album of quiet authority and considerable beauty’ 4 stars (Time Out London), “this one is a beauty from start to finish” (Paste) “CALEXICO retrouve les grands espaces de la fiction dans un album lumineux, qui cristallise tous ses talents mÃ©lodiques”. Les Inrockuptibles, France (sound good to us!)
