CALEXICO: Even My Sure Things Fall Through: CD

I was initially scared of this disc because I’d heard that they were part of some new vanguard in country music. You couldn’t tell from this disc, though. Sounds like Roby Robertson and Leonard Cohen took off into the Arizona desert for 40 days and wrote the soundtrack for the third installment of Robert Rodriguez’ “Mariachi” trilogy while they were out there. It’s different, but good.
