There's always been intrigue and adventure at the heart of Calexico. ever since they were a largely instrumental duo experimenting with their unique collection of instruments and soundtrack sensibilities, Joey Burns and John Convertino have constantly imbued their music with a sense of drama, calling upon the myths and iconography of the American west and Mexico, equal parts Sergio Leone, Larry McMurtry, Carlos Fuentes and Cormac McCarthy. now, with 'carried to dust', they have truly defined this distinctive musical territory, calling upon almost two decades of exploration and an ensemble of stellar musicians that must surely be the envy of bands throughout the world. '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. it presents a vivid picture of a world in which listeners can immerse themselves much as one is caught up in the tangled narrative of a Steinbeck novel or the imagery of a john ford film, and confirms Calexico as one of the great American bands of the 21st century.
