Geography has a way of seeping into music, and Calexico has never shied away from that fact. Throughout the group's 22-year existence, co-founders and multi-instrumentalist Joey Burns and John Convertino have drawn on the arid clime and vibrant culture of the American Southwest and its sister territory across the border to inform their sprawling, cross-cultural indie rock.That hasn't changed on Calexico's latest album, The Thread That Keeps Us. In fact, the video for one of the record's standout tracks, 'Voices In The Field,' is framed by a postcard graphic that underscores its travelogue-like imagery: shot after shot of oceans, forests, mountains and deserts. That last environment is the one Calexico is best known for, with the band hailing as it does from Tucson. Accordingly, 'Voices In The Field' resonates with dusty desolation and loss. 'Running through fields of flower and smoke / Leaving behind all that we've built / The garden now ashes and the roof caving in,' Burns sings over trembling guitar, haunting trumpet and an urgently shuffling beat.
