Calexico is a Tucson, Arizona-based Americana, Tex-Mex, indie rock band. The band's two main members, Joey Burns and John Convertino, first played together in Los Angeles as part of the group Giant Sand. They have recorded a number of albums on Quarterstick Records, while their 2005 EP In the Reins, recorded with Iron & Wine, has reached the Billboard 200 album charts

Algiers (Calexico album). Algiers is the seventh studio album from Tucson, Arizona indie rock/Americana band Calexico, released on 11 September 2012 Contents.

Algiers gets off to a very promising start with Epic, an expansive, cinematic track that recalls the classic Calexico sound. With sweeping acoustic guitars anchoring funky riffs from a wailing electric, it is a breathless, soaring track that plays to all of the band’s strengths. Even if one grants that they would sound fine on mainstream country radio, many of the new songs don’t really cut it for a Calexico album. To be fair, there are some wonderful moments when the more poppy approach works beautifully.

Includes free CD album "Algiers". Recorded at The Living Room Studio in Algiers, Louisiana. Recorded at Wavelab Studio in Tucson, Arizona. Recorded at Studio Calexico in Tucson, Arizona(track B3, CD-9). Mixed at Wavelab Studio. Mastered at Golden Mastering.

Algiers is the seventh studio album from Tucson, Arizona indie rock/Americana band Calexico, released on 11 September 2012. The album's name comes from Algiers, New Orleans, which is where the album was recorded. All songs written by Joey Burns & John Convertino, except "Fortune Teller" by Joey Burns & Pieta Brown, and "No Te Vayas" by Jacob Valenzuela.

Algiers sounds great, with a noticeable sensitivity to instrumental interplay and an emphasis on Burns' conspiratorial vocals, but the album is haunted by the missed opportunities to absorb the particulars of this neighborhood and reflect that in the music. What we're left with, after a few spins have dispersed expectations, is another solid Calexico record, impeccably conceived and imaginatively crafted. It's a sound and technique they've used on nearly every Calexico album, and as such it's become instantly recognizable as Calexico. While it may sound familiar, it's nevertheless effective, ushering you you into the world of this album.
