Calexico stopped by Studio 1A before their performance at Old Settler’s Music Festival to play a few songs and talk about their ninth album, The Thread That Keeps Us. The band consists of Joey Burns on vocals and guitar, Sergio Mendoza on keys, and Conner Gallager on guitar. Talking about the new album, Burns told us, “I really just wanna capture a room sound. I wanna capture what’s living and breathing in the room.” Each song has its own personality, shifting from folk to synth to rock, and back again. Check out the full session and interview below.
