What's there to say, really? A lot, I guess, considering their prolific live recording catalog. Still - I got nothing.

Haven’t paid too much attention to Calexico since 2005 or so. Anything crucial I should investigate?

I'm unclear on how we're defining "band" and "never," but I'd say relative to the place the music holds in my life vs. how much I post about it on RM, then it's probably Jim O'Rourke (assuming we're accepting single artists).

If we're going by "bands," then by the same relative thinking I'd say next would be Q and Not U. They've had about the same effect on me as the Minutemen/Mike Watt, Fugazi, Sonic Youth, and JJ Cale, all of whom I would say I've posted about a fair bit more frequently.

Hey! About some samples:

Jim O'Rourke:
Spoiler: show
As a solo artist:




As a producer/band member:
[spoiler] (and everything else from YHF and AGIB, plus much of Sky Blue Sky).



Q and Not U:
Spoiler: show

Michael Franti & Spearhead. I am seeing them for the 5th or 6th time next month. Great live. Albums full of songs that are mostly easy to listen to. I really learned about them upon the release of Stay Human in 2001 and have enjoyed them ever since.

"Carried to Dust" (2008) is probably my favorite album by them -- either that or "Feast of Wire." I haven't disliked any of them, though.

The album between those was where I got off. Feast Of Wire and the Even My Sure Things ep were fantastic but Hot Rail tickles my itch.
