AOTD: Calexico - Algiers
09/22/12 at 08:47 PM by Jeremy Aaron
Album of the Day

Calexico
Algiers
Anti, 2012

Calexico are a tough band to pin down, but easy to enjoy, and this is as true as ever on their latest album Algiers. Whether they're employing Murder by Death style brooding cello, brassier mariachi-esque arrangements, or stripped-down acoustic guitars, their songs are direct and rich with subtle charms. Anything Algiers may lack in pyrotechnics, it more than makes up for with easygoing, amiable tunes that are beguiling and heartfelt. It's a workmanlike effort that may be something of a sleeper amid the more overtly attention-grabbing recent releases, but given the opportunity, it displays more than enough attention-holding power to match its flashier contemporaries.
