In the Reins by Calexico & Iron and Wine

8/10 Clinton 28 November 2006
Speaking of Iron and Wine  - here is the new collaborative effort between Iron and Wine and Calexico on Touch and Go Records. Its a hit and miss effort but the hits are worth the admission price alone. Opener 'He Lays in the Reins' is a superb Iron and Wine tune with some fantastic instrumentation - there's some  odd Welsh singing that comes from nowhere about half way through  - I really don't know what that is all about. As the album wears on there's one or two rootsy type things that sound like filler but there's still about 3 or 4 Iron and Wine tunes up with the best of their back catalogue so this is essential for any fan. As far as Calexico are concerned  - I'm less of a fan but it seems that on this record Iron and Wine handles most of the vocals whilst Calexico add instrumental flourishes. I think that's how it works. So it could appeal to Iron and Wine fans more than Calexico  - but it you like both....perfect.
