Random 30 2013: Calexico - Maybe On Monday

Continuing a theme, Americana or alt-country outfit Calexico was another band that took me into previously unexplored territory across the calendar year. ‘Maybe On Monday’ is lifted from the band’s seventh studio album, Algiers, which, naturally enough, was recorded in New Orleans.

Algiers wasn’t strictly a 2013 album; it was released in late 2012, and it probably represents a commercial highpoint for the band thus far. It wasn’t my first exposure to Calexico either, but I’ve only ever been a distant and very casual fan, and perhaps the time has now come for me to have a serious dig around the band’s already extensive back catalogue.
