That conchord of sound of keyboards and bellows, is the IT instrument again, if it ever was. More variable in style than stylish to wear, artists of all stripes strap on the squeezebox and make music of many genres: Folk, Zydeco, Retro Rock, Vallenato, Tango, Klezmer, Musette, Gawwali, Forró, Bachata, Balkans Russian Bluegrass, World Busker Punk, and Gypsy Gospel. Give it a squeeze.

Calexico - Sunken Waltz
Pamela Talese

Calexico ~ Sunken Waltz

An evocative and elegant use of the accordion creating the aural landscape of 'dessert noir' for which Calexico is known. I love their mournful mariachi tones and their look-life-in-the-face lyricism:

Washed my face in the rivers of empire
Made my bed from a cardboard crate
Down in the city of quartz
No news no new regrets
