Gig & Concert News - The return of Calexico

The return of Calexico

02 July 2013 - 0 Comments

Billions Australia,  Mystery Girl, undertheradar, 95bFM and Radio Active present

CALEXICO | Algiers Tour | New Zealand 2013

Billions Australia & Mystery Girl are chuffed to announce the return of CALEXICO to New Zealand in 2013 because a CALEXICO tour always offers an increasingly rare opportunity to experience a band of true quality, depth and integrity. Their unique brand of “desert noir” is a fusion of various influences including Portugese fado, 50’s jazz, gypsy music, 60’s surf & country twang, spaghetti western epics and dark and moody indie rock and, since 1996, it has earned them the right to inhabit and own their own special space in contemporary music. With Joey Burns and John Convertino at the helm the CALEXICO space is warm, approachable and effortlessly cool and when joined by their cast of musicians from across the globe it also offers one of the most reliable and fantastic live music experiences around.

Since their last visit in 2010 they have been busy with extensive touring, collaborations, two movie soundtracks (Circo [2010] and The Guard [2011]) plus releasing an anthology of live recordings cut from thirteen years of global touring (Road Atlas [2011]) and most recently the recording and release of their epic seventh studio album Algiers [2012].

Algiers was recorded in New Orleans and is CALEXICO at their finest – clearly inspired by the musical hotpot and soul of the city in which it was recorded. 

So after seven studio albums, multiple tour CDs & soundtracks, collaborations with the likes of Victoria Williams, Iron & Wine, Willie Nelson, Roger McGuinn and Nancy Sinatra, and 15 years of touring the world; the CALEXICO story continues to the benefit of music lovers everywhere. This is great stuff and we can’t wait to see them back in this part of the world. 

"Utterly assured and fully aware of their intoxicating potency." – Q
"Widescreen frontier music created on the cusp of cultures and genres." – Uncut

Support on most shows along the way is New Zealand artist Tiny Ruins who has just released her critically acclaimed second offering Haunts, the prequel to her cherished 2011 debut Some Were Meant For Sea which was described in global media as everything from "an absolutely gorgeous album" and “exquisite” to “album of the year” http://www.tinyruins.com/
