Best Albums of 2006: Calexico – Garden Ruin

Calexico’s music has always reminded me of a haunted old west town. Garden Ruin abandons their typical sound just a bit, but the hushed vocals and pedal steel still conjures images of tumble weeds. Garden Ruin makes Calexico more accessible to the mainstream while maintaining their indie integrity. Great record.
