sleeping in the valley, valley of ill fortune
waking cross the river, river of delusion
full moon lures the waves, waves of desperation
empty hearts and mouths wither away

so close your eyes
slow your breath
dream of northern lights
around this dance of death

no abandones, no llores, busca tu rio
no te sientas perdido
gira, vuelta y vuelta gira
danza de la muerte
que viene a verte
bailala

cup your hands to her parched heart, parched and
broken heart
no water here to drink way downstream
one goes where the water flows and water's running dry
so don't give up no don't cry, don't cry

just close our eyes
pretend we forget
north country dreams
twist this dance of death

danza de la muerte
si viene a verte
que bailando te encuentre
bailando, girando
danza de la muerte

spin round, spin round, spin round
vuelta, vuelta, muerte

bailala

Sounds like the singer from amparanoia? nice tune

 
Yup, it's her. Apparently Calexico's guitarist plays a lot with her. Both Spaniards

Fantastic show the other night at the beautiful and sumptuous sounding new Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, NC. Great sound from these guys and it was obvious they really love playing for their fans. Highly recommend this terrific group live.

 
I saw them the night before in Atlanta. Great show. On their Instagram page, Calexico raved about that N.C. venue and said it was their best show of the tour.
Last sunday I enjoyed a perfect Calexico concert in Utrecht, the Netherlands! {#Dancingbanana_2}

  Crazy about Calexico's cool style  {#Kiss}
Almost 0130 here.. I'm dancing in th dark... sadly dancing alone this morning.

Nice grouping, thank you.

Good Morning/night ya'll—-
that one repetitive riff from the horns - 5 notes - v simple, the voice saying god know what, that clip clop sound - what is it, a woodblock? - i'm finding this a fairly hypnotic cocktail, in a good way.
Sorry, sounds dreadful to me, yet I usually enjoy Calexico material....

Always such a pick-me-up... first few bars and I'm smiling. Happy :)

Thank Ghod it wasn't on a Chinese phone, then it would be a "wong" tone; or on porn star's phone — "Dong" tone; (or maybe "Long" tone .. but I digress.  Too much time on my hands with Momma off at Lake Tahoe.
 
Nice comment!

I was gonna go 'pretentious', but sophisticated is good.

I haven't found a Calexico record I don't like.

I don't have them all, but do have many.
 
Why you did not tell us, after finishing your search...?
