Convict Pool is a collection of originals and covers that span the wide range of Calexico’s abilities and infl uences. The version of Love’s “Alone Again Or” brings out the Latin rhythms of the original and features Nicolai Dunger sharing vocal duties. “Convict Pool” finds the band stripped down to its core of Joey Burns and John Convertino: a lone voice backed by an acoustic guitar and drums. Calexico’s take on French singer Françoiz Breut’s “Si Tu Disais” recalls the beauty of the original and adds a plaintive pedal steel and subtle brass lines. The Minutemen classic “Corona” (a staple of Calexico’s shows) retains the joy and festive feel of Calexico’s live performances. The instrumental “Praskovia” balances precariously on the keys of an accordion. “Sirena” ends this collection with epic horns and shuffling guitars leading the way, augmented by a chorus of Spanish voices. In total, six songs: three originals, three covers, all Calexico.
