Fresh off the heels of their epically successful collaborations with Iron & Wine, Calexico are taking over the radio-friendly world. Musically, Garden Ruin is brighter than Calexico's earlier work, it is more accessible, uplifting even. Thematically however it is the most politically relevant work they have done to date--it even hints at our government's recent folly. "Cruel" will be the song you will be singing along with on the radio, "All Systems Red" will be the song that keeps you up at night. The first pressing of this LP will contain a download code for exclusive bonus tracks that you cannot get anywhere else. After 10 odd years, Calexico are finally getting their due.
