So here I was listening to the new Calexico CD I bought a couple of weeks ago, wondering exactly what John Convertino was saying. I opened up the sleeve of Garden Ruin and out flops a small piece of paper, upon which is written: “The purchase of this Limited edition CD entitles you to a one-time download of bonus tracks not included on the album.”
Whoa! How did I miss this? There is even a live acoustic version of Letters to Bowie Knife. Awesome. If anyone got a chance to pick this up from Backstreet Records in Fredericton when it came out, you would have also had the chance to pick up some sweet Touch and Go pins or stickers. Touch and Go is a cool label taking care of Calexico as well as !!!, Urge Overkill, Pinback, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and many more. Enjoy!
