I feel like I should have something heavy and important to say with this first post of 2008. But I don’t. So, on with the show.
Thanks to tucsonscene.com, we have some audio AND visual proof of new material from one of Tucson’s finest, Calexico. The band just played at the Temple of Music and Arts in Tucson for a benefit show, and Tucson Scene â€“ as its name might imply â€“ was there to videotape the proceedings. The site kindly added seven video clips to its YouTube page from the show, including one of a new track called Absent Afternoon. Judging by this song, I’m more than excited about a possible Calexico album in ’08.
