Calexico

The Black Light (20th Anniversary Edition) Double Clear Vinyl

Double Heavyweight LP £25.00

Release Date: 23/11/2018

Discs: 2

An album about crossing physical and metaphorical borders that has never been timelier: Calexico’s classic album “The
Black Light“ turns 20 this year. This limited celebratory anniversary edition includes all new artwork by Victor Gastelum, extensive
linernotes, and 11 bonus tracks.#

What was surprising about The Black Light (and what set its architects apart from their indie rock peers) was the album’s unusual
willingness to wade into the rapids of American and Mexican culture, fully immersing itself midstream. From the outset, with ‘Gypsy’s
Curse’, the record combines guitar twang and flamenco flourishes; and by its end, almost an hour later, it’s contrived a skillful and
instinctive union of smoky bar room jazz, arthouse indie rock, and compelling mariachi brass in ‘Frontera’. If Calexico falls short as a
name, it’s only in the fact that - alongside their mining of Mexico’s fertile musical past - Joey Burns and John Convertino weren’t just
digging into California’s songbook...they were unearthing America’s too.
