7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 30th October 2014

“Hot Rail” begins with Calexico’s dusty, tex-mex sound: Acoustic guitars and mariachi brass on the instrumental “El Picador”. This album contains two of Calexico’s best songs, the first of which being “The Ballad of Cable Hogue”, named after the Sam Peckinpah film. The song is a duet between Joey Burns and French-born singer Marianne Dissard. They take turns singing on the stark verses then their voices join gloriously as the song melts into a great chorus. The other is “Service and Repair” which has a gloriously emotive pedal steel enhancing what is an already brilliant song. There’s a touch of midnight jazz about the long and meandering “Fade” which the album could probably do without. There is instrumental experimentation on “Mid-Town” which adds another texture, although I prefer their brilliant songs.
