    Apr 23, 2015

    In case you hadn't noticed: Calexico's chart-topping new record 'Edge of the Sun' is now out worldwide and you can get it from Amazon, iTunes, or direct from City Slang.

    This release marks a new high water mark for the band - it shot straight into the album charts everywhere, including TOP TEN in Germany, Austria and Switzerland! This is incredible - thank you so much for your support! In fact, no Calexico record has ever charted higher than this one. Here's the rundown of positions so far:

    Austria: #4
    Switzerland: #4
    Germany: #6
    Holland: #10
    Ireland: #17
    UK: #37
    France: #53

    Plenty of press praise for the record below, but first, watch the all-new, Lynchian, José Gonzalez-starring, alien-furuncle-worm-featuring new video for "Falling From the Sky", which premiered last night via Pitchfork:
