Calexico On Mountain Stage (NPR: Mountain Stage, 1/24/11)

Started by singer-guitarist Joey Burns and drummer/multi-instrumentalist John Convertino, the Arizona-based band Calexico has evolved throughout its 15-year career. In the group's second appearance on Mountain Stage since 2003, Calexico played a set of songs from its latest album, Carried to Dust. The band's robust, dynamic sound — driven by two trumpets, pedal steel, bass and piano — incorporates many ethnic influences.
