Calexico, led by duo Joey Burns and John Convertino, released "Algiers," the band's seventh studio effort, in early September. The band recorded the Anti Records release in New Orleans at The Living Room Studio, an old church owned by Chris George and Daniel Majorie.

"Algiers" follows 2008's "Carried To Dust," which featured several guest musicians, including Iron & Wine, Doug McCombs of Tortoise and Pieta Brown.
