New Video: Calexico

Here is the new video from Calexico, who’s new album Algiers is released today

The single is titled Splitter and this is what director Paloma Zapata had to say about the recording…

“For Joey, the song was about the migration going through the border of any country. I developed the idea of ‘the escape’ into a generic concept, adding a touch of fantasy to lighten the dramatic tone that those situations already have. To escape aboard a spaceship to an unknown reality as an idea of change, mystic encounter and rebirth.”

In addition, Calexico have announced a couple of shows, including a Rough Trade East set this coming Thursday, and a UK tour in February…

London Rough Trade East (onstage at 12pm) – September 13th
