Pitchfork

Ultimately, this is the type of record this band is suited to making, and it richly rewards repeat listening-- details and melodies that seem buried or understated eventually come to fore, slowly revealed in a mixture of organic warmth, welcome variety, and subtle complexity.

Slant Magazine
While most groups lasting over 10 years tend to run on artistic fumes, Joey Burns and John Convertino gush with unbridled creative enthusiasm here.

Uncut

Calexico are back, but this time they’re travelling all over the map. Carried to Dust is a quietly persuasive record.

The Guardian

Their music can sound both wonderfully evocative or occasionally faux - as authentic as a Mexican restaurant located in Milton Keynes - and lacks a dominant vocal like former bandmate Howe Gelb, of Giant Sand.

NOW Magazine
Nothing terribly new or unexpected to report, just a more direct way of expressing not so adventurous ideas.
NR
Captures the spirit of Calexico and the Southwest in the most refined way to date.
