Carried to Dust (Bonus Track Version)

Carried to Dust (Bonus Track Version)

Calexico's borderless blend of rock, country, and Tejano music ominously rolls across the Americas on Carried to Dust. This expansive album seamlessly slips from supple, Southwestern rocker "Víctor Jara's Hands"—a nod to the Chilean activist—to dusky, string-soaked laments like "House of Valparaiso" (warmed by the hushed harmonies of Iron & Wine's Sam Beam) and slinky, horn-powered waltzes on "Inspiración." The duo then take a detour to Moscow for the woozy ballad "Red Blooms" before drifting into the ghostly, ambient mist of "Contention City."
