Customer Reviews

this is a solid choice

I first heard this music on the soundtrack of Desperado - "Forever Night Shade Mary" was also
on the televised version of Northern Exposure when Fleischman is going back to New York..
this is really great bordertown music - like El Paso/Juarez, the music has it's foot in two worlds, in more than a cultural sense. Forever Night Shade Mary has an almost mystical twilight quality - like slipping from a daydream into night (probably why it was chosen as the final musical backdrop in NE's "The Quest"). Manifold de Amour (also on the Desperado soundtrack which is a solid buy) also has a dreamy, otherworldy quality that transitions into something darker and more sensual as the song builds. But a lot of the other songs are extremely earthy and almost menacing - Chinese Surprise, for example. Anyway, if you like Calexico, Iron & Wine, and Los Lobos, you should add this to your collection.

Fleeting, ephemeral, transcendent, a surreal mix of the avant-garde and the traditional: bluesy Latin grooves, psychedelic sound collages, impressionist folk poetry, trip-hoppy beats, echoes of a mystical Mexican border town. This album fashions itself a communal dreamworld and drops you in the middle of it; you won't want to leave.

All of the material was composed by Hidalgo and Perez, and...
