Calexico – “Bullets & Rocks” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Prolific spaghetti western rock hybrid Calexico put out their ninth LP, Edge of the Sun, earlier this year, and subsequently shared a bizarre video for “Falling From The Sky” featuring José Gonzales babysitting a bulbous, fleshy thing. The Tucson collective are back with another clip for Edge of the Sun highlight “Bullets & Rocks,” but have toned down the weirdness a smidgen. Following the anthropomorphic imagery of their last video, director Aaron Hymes developed a computer-animated dream sequence of humanlike figures coalescing into vast, canyon landscapes. Watch the hallucinatory video below.
