With the addition of these core members since roughly — we have produced a much fuller sound and increased the dynamic range from the hush of our quieter numbers to a full blast with guitars, drums, bass and the two trumpets. Having the wide variety of sounds to choose from has been shaped by both the continual appreciation of multi instrumentation and various styles of music.

People always comment on tour that audiences enjoy our live shows and that the dynamic spread is always engaging and entertaining.

Book & the Canal

We try to mix it up, keep the energy moving, switch out instruments and change the mood as much as possible. SB: What directions has the band taken in recent years that have had a direct influence on the rest of the members of the group? JB: Well, there are musicians that can play all these parts and changes in instrumentation and the music can get out there in a live setting. Otherwise, the songs would stay in the studio and recording dimension. Also, as we have all gotten to know each other and work together more closely over the years, we have shared all sorts of influences with each other, in regards to all the arts and cultural differences between the countries we are from.

People start talking about relatives or travels and ask questions about what life is like, what political opinions are different, opening the door to ideas and expression.

SB: There has been a lot of collaboration in remixes in recent years with electronica artists like Goldfrapp, Two Lone Swordsmen and Nortec Collective. How has this come about? What are the links between their musical worlds and yours? We never delved into the world of electronica or samples or even digitally originated music, but we had listened to some and had some interest in trying it someday.

They reassured us when they wanted to have us record and produce the song, the same way we would do one of our tunes in the studio.

So we did and started adding samples and snippets from their recording, experimenting in the studio more with effects both homemade and processed from outboard gear. What other writers or influences have played an important part more recently? He has been focusing on these topics for some time and is always inspiring to hang out with and to get a fresh perspective on things. In the past we also worked with a local writer who unfortunately passed away, Lawrence Clark Powell.

They have book readings and signings every November around Thanksgiving, so we met Mr. Powell as well as the talented Mitch Cullin.

SB: How much does landscape and where you live influence your music and writing, not so much the Sonoran Desert but the city of Tucson? And from your travels?

I moved from near the Pacific Ocean to the Sonoran Desert. The extremes are wonderful and inspire creativity and cursing all the time. The city of Tucson is a beautiful and strange bird here and I love the town and all the many different people very much. As for travels, meeting musicians from all over has definitely helped make some past collaboration possible. Without it, I doubt they would have occurred.

Playing in an old castle in former East Germany, or in one of the old amphitheaters high above Athens has given us some confidence to keep on doing what we do. It helps make up for the long drives and lame clubs here at home. SB: How has working with other artists shaped your musical vision? JB: Every time you back up another artist you learn something new. I love collaborating and playing accompaniment, especially playing upright bass.

Holding on to that instrument and laying down the root is like meditating for me. SB: How much influence does the audience have on what you do both live and on recordings?

You have had a steady touring schedule in the past, how has performing live changed your lives and your music? JB: I suppose performing and interacting with the audience, watching them react to certain songs or dynamics, other artists and instruments, helps build your knowledge of what you do, more like a coexisting world that has a life all its own.

There are times when our tour schedule is out of balance and the only thing that makes it worth doing, is meeting people whose lives have been seriously changed by music. This also comes from just watching others play live, say like Yo La Tengo who always has put on an incredible live show and taken the audience to places far from the norm. JB: What do you do to get into the music and begin writing and recording, touring and performing live?

JB: Um … do something distracting or the opposite of what you would normally do. Being in a group, just hanging out is sometimes better than any kind of rehearsal, finding the dynamics between each other more than the right notes.

SB: What are some challenges Calexico has faced as you record more and more albums? Stock arrives at the office throughout the day so the stock status of items on the website can change several times a day.

Pre-orders are treated as separate packages to items that are either in stock or available to order. If pre-orders share the same release date then they can be ordered and shipped together. However pre-order release dates are liable to change, if you have ordered two pre-orders with the same date to ship together and then one release date gets pushed back, we will ship the available pre-order straight away and the second pre-order as soon as it becomes available with no extra shipping charge.

If you choose to ship your order across more than one package you can select the Royal Mail service for one package and Parcelforce courier for the other.

Also, as we have all gotten to know each other and work together more closely over the years, we have shared all sorts of influences with each other, in regards to all the arts and cultural differences between the countries we are from.

This also comes from just watching others play live, say like Yo La Tengo who always has put on an incredible live show and taken the audience to places far from the norm.

People always comment on tour that audiences enjoy our live shows and that the dynamic spread is always engaging and entertaining. At this writing, Calexico has put out four more studio albums since Feast of Wire with a fifth one on the way , not to mention a cornucopia of compilations, soundtracks, live albums and extended-play singles; all of them further the narrative Burns and Convertino have been judiciously crafting since Spoke.

We all agreed pretty quickly but could never seem to clear our schedules until last December. On first listen, it plays like a logical follow-up to The Black Light and Hot Rail; over time, however, it reveals itself as the grand apotheosis of what those records attempted.

Despite cultivating a seemingly boundless catalog of influences, what is Calexico if not a band continually, sometimes profoundly expanding upon the idea of what pop music can mean and contain?
