Ships Come In

A promising, adventurous debut from Tucson, Arizona. Which means you wouldn't be wrong to expect a healthy dose of desert rock along the lines of illustrous grand uncles Giant Sand and especially Calexico here, but Xixa's scope proves even broader. Wild cumbia rhythms, surf guitars, warped electronic injections... You name it, these guys have got it. They even brought in a member of Tinariwen's Tuareg gang to contribute to price track World Goes Away. "Many hands try to heal the pain..."
