Two Silver Trees (MP3)

    Mixing folk-rock and indie-rock doom and gloom is not an easy prospect, but no band does it better than Calexico (and maybe pre-Sky Blue Sky Wilco). The Arizona-duo succeed again with “Two Silver Trees,” an excellent song that is led by a Asian-influenced, pentatonic synth line, and features Calexico’s occasional singer (and full-time instrumentalist) Joey Burns muttering out the lyrics like they’re secret intelligence he doesn’t want anyone to hear.


    The track is off the band’s upcoming new album, Carried to Dust, due on 9/9 via Quarterstick.
