Calexico new LP and tour on the way


Thank God Calexico is going on tour, otherwise I'd have pretty much nothing else to write about this week! And that would totally shatter my goal to bring this blog back from the dead, like a non-murderous post-punk/americana-inspired zombie, or a rock'n'roll defibrillator or something. And if I didn't maintain this blog, what else would I do to keep my mind off my uninspiring and hopeless search for employment? SIGH.

Anyways, Calexico's new full-length, Carried to Dust, features guest collaborations from Mr. Iron and Wine, Sam Beam, Pieta Brown, and Doug McCombs, the dude behind Tortoise. It comes out September 9 on Quarterstick Records. This is the day before my birthday for those keeping track and trying to gauge when to buy me Nick Cave tickets for optimal birthday happiness.

They are also going on tour, which you already knew from the headline!!! And I am going to the grocery store, any maybe to rent a DVD because I feel like being a social recluse. An unemployed social recluse. Until next week!
