Biography

They call New Orleans a melting pot. When one thinks about it like that, it’s hardly surprising that this is where CALEXICO reconvened to record their seventh full-length album, ALGIERS. Joey Burns and John Convertino have long called upon an extended range of musical influences, blending them together so distinctly that the results have almost become a genre of their own.

If you love Calexico you will love this as it contains the essence of this bands music. Although a selection from their concert only sales CD's it is a cohesive album with that blend of song and instrumental sound so evocative of their home town and state. It is yet another sound track to a western movie that has yet to be made.

It will certainly fill the gap until their next full studio album.

Brilliant cd,a selection of songs that are proformed at their live gigs that are not on any of their previous albums.
If you like Calexico this is worth a listern.

Slow learner 2 Feb 2013
By Bob - Published on Amazon.com

I think of myself as someone with a diverse taste in music, and a wide mix of things from Mozart to Death Cab for Cutie, and I even have one disk with Iron and Wine and Calexico, but haven't paid much attention to them till I was going over my collection and heard their music on that disk. I went to Amazon and listened to a few of their albums and bought most of them and seeing this it just made sense to get it as well seeing it covers their material for 1998 to 2011. So after I began listening to them I have to say I am a fan and this album is a great way for someone to get a good start into their material. I love it and plan on giving some of their CD's as gifts to family and friends.

My thoughts on their music is that it reminds me of some of the better folk rock from the 1970's or late 60's. Don't get me wrong their fresh and have their own sound, but believe have a classic rock sound that hopefully will stay around for a long time.

Yes I would recommend this to just about anyone of any age group. I think their sound covers just about everyone from the Baby Boomers to those who are into Alternative Rock. I guess I'm trying to say I believe they should have a mass appeal and this CD would make a good gift or addition to just about anyone's collection.

Very talented Tucson group. 5 Dec 2012
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been listening to these guys since they split from Howe Gelb. I had the pleasure of hearing them in Minneapolis a couple of months ago and I have never been so entertained. They are worth getting into and their music covers a very wide range. They amaze me with talent. You cannot go wrong. More please!

CALEXICO CAN't BE TOPPED 19 Dec 2012
By wozno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've written a few reviews of CDs by CALEXICO. Check out my reviews. SELECTIONS FROM THE ROAD ATLAS 1998-2011 is my second favorite CALEXICO CD.
ALGIERS is my favorite CALEXICO CD. I have to find out when the band will perform LIVE near Philly, PA. A CALEXICO LIVE SHOW will be a treat for my lady friend and me.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What else can I say? This is more great music from Calexico, with great variety and, as always, great musicianship. Recommended for those new to the group as well as fans.
