    The Thread That Keeps Us

    Over the past two decades, a strong sense of place
    has shaped the music of CALEXICO, infusing their
    albums with a stylistic unpredictability and richness
    of texture. While 2015's Edge of the Sun brought
    the Tucson-bred band to the Mexico City borough
    of Coyoacán, their new full-length The Thread That
    Keeps Us mostly came to life in a house studio near
    the Northern California coast nicknamed "The Phantom
    Ship" by CALEXICO vocalist/guitarist Joey
    Burns and drummer John Convertino.


    Like "End of the World with You," much of The Thread
    That Keeps Us captures the anxieties and unease of
    living in tumultuous times. While the album draws
    a kinetic energy from all that uncertainty, its lyrics
    unfold with a literary nuance and sense of setting
    and character. "Instead of writing straight-up protest
    songs, I want to tell stories," Burns says. Largely
    inspired by his wanderings around Northern California
    during the album's production, the narratives
    embedded in The Thread That Keeps Us reflect on
    displacement, transitory existence, and-in Burns's
    words-"returning to your home after being gone for
    some time and seeing how things have changed, and
    maybe not in the best way."
