Sneak Peak - Calexico's "Carried To Dust"

That there’s a quick first look and listen to what we can expect from the new Calexico record, Carried To Dust, due out September 9 on Quarterstick Records. As much as any band I can think of, the music Calexico create reflects where they’re from (the Southwest). This video and the short song snippet look like the band will continue that geographical connection on their upcoming release. Which is cool.

Carried To Dust will feature a host of musical collaborators, most notably Sam Beam, who you’ll remember has already done good work with the band in the past on the In The Reins EP.

In other Calexico news, the band just had their song “Crystal Frontier” played in space, and by all accounts it was the first alternative Tex-Mex indie rock tune that has ever been played above the stratosphere. In celebration they are offering the tune up as a free download.
