Event Navigation

The ninth studio album from Calexico, The Thread That Keeps Us is a timely snapshot of the Arizonabredband: a family portrait capturing their stylistic variety and unpredictability while still findingsolace in limitless creativity. In bringing the album to life, vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and drummerJohn Convertino found a spiritual home in unusual surroundings-not in Arizona, but on theNorthern California coast in a home-turned-studio called the Panoramic House. Built from debrisand shipyard-salvaged timber-and dubbed “The Phantom Ship” by the band-the grandiose houseand its edge-of-the-world-like ambience soon made their way into the songs. The specter of California also had a powerful effect: as both dream state and nightmare, its infinite duality is mirrored in the music, giving Calexico a new direction and new edge. With less polish and more grit than ever before, The Thread That Keeps Us both honors enduring traditions and reveals Calexico’s confidence in songwriting, ultimately setting a whole new standard for the band.
