thanks for the review. maybe I'll save my money and listen to Yoshimi again. Have you heard the new Calexico? I'm disappointed that they seem to be abandoning the Mexican/mariachi aspect of their sound. It's what I liked most about them and set them apart from other bands. Still, not a bad album, just not the direction I was hoping for.


I don't know, I think "Mystics" is worth owning, its just that I still really love Yoshimi.

I do have the new Calexico (Garden Ruin) and want to write a review for The Times, either way I'll have a review sometime next week. But I agree with your assessment, they've gone the singer/songwriter route-which detracts from what makes them stand out, which was the Marachi-south of the border sound. In essence they have replaced all that orchestrration with a steel guitar, and I'm not sure Joey Burns is a good enough singer to have songs depend on his delivery.
