The Thread That Keeps Us

It’s Rocktober everyone and we are super excited to announce that we have a new album! It’s titled The Thread That Keeps Us and will be released January 26th, 2018. If you’re curious and want to catch a glimpse, check out the first song “End of the World With You” below. Here’s a video with lyrics featuring some stunning video footage filmed by our good friend Craig Schumacher from WaveLab Recording Studio who came with us on our travels to studios from El Paso to the Northern California coast. See if you can recognize the three figures waving from the edge of the coast at the end of the video. Great editing by the talented Jonny Sanders. The song is inspired by some of my favorite indie rock bands when growing up in California like Pavement, Sebadoh, and The Replacements. There’s some jangle, there’s some whacked out fuzz guitar and some sweet melodies mapping out the need for love, light and time in this “age of the extremes.” Hope you enjoy!

From Calexico with Love Tee

We are concerned with the deeply disturbing state of affairs under the new administration and wanted to show our support for Planned Parenthood, an organization we believe is essential to protecting and serving the healthcare needs of all women. Joey designed this special “From Calexico With Love” Tee with that in mind. These unique versions will be on sale for 10 days only, and all proceeds will go to benefit Planned Parenthood. Order yours here.
