New Calexico Video – “Two Silver Trees”

Joey Burns and John Convertino’s Carried To Dust is out this fall. As mentioned when we posted spare, subtle “Two Silver Trees,” the album includes the helping hands of various friends like pedal steel player Paul Niehaus, bassist Volker Zander, and multi-instrumentalists Martin Wenk and Jacob Valenzuela along with Sam Beam, Douglas McCombs, Pieta Brown, etc. That said, “Two Silver Trees”‘s video finds Burns and Convertino, Calexico proper, by their lonesome in a bar and an airplane burial ground. The visuals are fleshed out via the buildings, people, colorful murals, and dusty landscape of Calexico’s lovely hometown of Tucson, Arizona.

Makes me want to move there. Also, looking at the fields of rusted-out planes reminded me of Burns’s story about the “manmade lake full of cell phone trees.”
