COVEREXACTYX;1418996061069323;Calexico1418996061069323.jpg;220;220 The ‘edge of the sun’ could be coming from the direction of darkness seeking light, or riding the line between both…All in all, this album is about pushing through the blue to brighter days. Calexico has always had that element of hope, going back and forth between a positive outlook and embracing desperate or dark themes that I think we all share.” (Joey Burns)

Calexico a.k.a Joey Burns and John Convertino released their first studio album in the 90s where rock and metal music styles were the dominating music trends. Calexico were ‘looking’ for influences towards Latin America, with a creative mind and an open heart. Ever since their first studio album ‘Spoke’ the band had a very clear idea about which would be the reference points of their sound; namely almost every aspect of the music of the American south with a focus on the derivatives and fusions of the music and dance rhythms of Latin America. Western movies and their music has also been a very powerful influence for the band and in almost every release we have identified elements that take our minds to the music of Ennio Morricone and to music for westerns in general.
