PO Calexico - The Black Light 20th Anniversary Reissue

Super stoked as this is one of my favourite releases by one of my favourite bands! New artwork, gatefold sleeve, clear vinyl option and 11 (!) bonus tracks!

 

European version on City Slang

 

US version on Touch&Go/Quarterstick

Nobody? Wow, I knew that they are more popular over here in Europe...but nobody?B)

Uh did you post to post, or to get reacts? I mean, I'm excited, and Man Goes Where Water Flows is a great song but Calexico are as popular now as the Mekons were in the 2000s. They're a cult band here. They fill mid-sized venues but expecting a lot of traction for them on here is expecting a lot. Unlike Lampchop, they're very political about Mexico/U.S. border issues so that's a turn-off, unfortunately, for many Americans, including people in this forum, no doubt.

Thanks, and I really thought nobody cares. But I can understand - also as a huge Lambchop fan - what you're talking about.

I've been meaning to get into this band for a long time. Loved their work with Iron and Wine. Is this album a good starting point?

Oh yes, I would say so, but I would then skip to Feast of Wire next. Hot Rail is the third-best of their early era IMO.

Also check out their comp. albums Some of their best songs are non-album tracks. Heck, even the remixes by IDM artists are fun.
