SONG OF THE DAY Calexico -El Picador


Holy moly how much do I love Calexico! I mean, how could you not love this performance! I have been fortunate enough to see them live and I relished every moment of it, my face still beams when I hear those trumpets, this is music that makes me happy and I love it!

El Picador is the opening track to Calexico’s third studio album, Hot Rail, which was released in 2000 through Quarterstick Records and demonstrates the bands more brass-orientated sound perfectly (as opposed to their more laid-back Americana songs). The Mexican vibe is gorgeously vibrant and never fails to fill my heart with joy! Check out this wonderful live performance of El Picador above.
