Calexico are one of my favourite bands. Formed in 1996, Arizona, they have been consistantly excellent at producing textured "alt-country" along the lines of Wilco & Lambchop. What makes Calexico stand out is their incorporation of different musical elements such as Spanish guitar and horn sections.

Two Silver Trees comes from their new album coming in September, titled Carried To Dust. The song features a beautifully intergrated plucked harp melody that gives it a classic oriental feel.
