This Is What the Calexico Box Set Looks Like

Posted By on Tue, Oct 4, 2011 at 11:00 AM

Steve Seigel teased this box set in a September Soundbites, and now you can stare at it while listening to the wistful sounds of the desert for a minute and a half.

Calexico is proud to announce, Road Atlas 1998-2011, which collects the band’s 8 self-released tour albums in vinyl format for the first time ever (previously only available as CDs at Calexico’s live concerts). As described by journalist Fred Mills, “you hold what the members of Calexico describe as their Road Atlas, and as a kind of alternate musical history of the band, it makes for quite a trip.”
