Giveaway Info

Edge of the Sun is the 2015 album made by the indie rock band called Calexico, and is regarded as one of the most textured and dimensional works that the band has ever produced. Edge of the Sun covers quite a bit of stylistic territory, and what makes it work is the tremolo-like shimmer which represented the sun radiating off of brush, dirt, pavement, etc. At the request of keyboardist Sergio Mendoza, the band spent 10 days in the Mexico City borough of Coyoacan, gathering new ideas in the process.

Calexico is a Tucson, Arizona-based Americana/Tex-Mex/indie rock band. The band's two main members of the group, Joey Burns and John Convertino, first played in Los Angeles as part of another group called Giant Sands. Their musical style is heavily influenced by traditional Latin sounds of mariachi/conjunto/ cumbia/Tejano music. Calexico is often categorized as being an indie rock or "desert noir" group.

Several of these compositions illustrate the journeys within them, swerving twists-and-turns and instance when, almost out of the blue, the intensity picks up at just the right moment. Such a feat is heard in "World Undone." It is fashioned around a steady drone - a hummable blues guitar riff. The music of this album is a fine representation of digging down deep until something potent is found.
