Label: Anti/Epitaph
"Take it down/ Take it all the way down," frontman Joey Burns slithers out on "Para"; and his band heeds that advice on their seventh album, among their softest and subtlest to date. On Algiers, Calexico ease their blistering mariachi-infused Americana down to a light simmer: The trumpets blow with a gentler vigor as delicate strums of acoustic guitar guide the band's every move, from devilish desert blues on "Sinner in the Sea" and Shins-like indie pop on "Fortune Teller" to dusty instrumental rock on the title track and James Taylor-tinged folk on "Hush."
