Title Fragments Of A Rainy Season (Live)
‘Fragments Of A Rainy Season’ was the first live John Cale album to feature him performing solo and ‘unplugged’ - before that term became a mid 1990s buzzword.
Title Paris 1919 (2006 Remaster & Bonus Tracks)
Title Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood
Label Double Six
2011’s Extra Playful EP, John Cale’s first set of new material in six years, found the ex-Velvet Underground legend revisiting some of the more playful aspects of his early solo career, which should come as no surprise since he had spent the year prior performing his 1973 masterpiece, Paris 1919, in its entirety. Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood, his first full-length outing since Black Acetate, continues in that same vein, mining the oddball, chamber pop sound that dominated his immediate post-Velvets output, while maintaining the austere, experimental art rock demeanor that informed much of his later work.

Title Edge Of The Sun
Label City Slang
For the better part of two decades, the acclaimed band Calexico has crossed musical barriers, embracing a multitude of styles, variety in instrumentation, and well-cultivated signature sounds. With their new record they take inspiration from a trip to a place surprisingly unexplored by the band before in Mexico City, and with the benefit of many friends and comrades to help guide the way.
Encouraged by the experience, the guest list grew to include Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses), Nick Urata (Devotchka), Carla Morrison, Gaby Moreno, Amparo Sanchez, multi-instrumentalists from the Greek band Takim, and Neko Case. Burns’ brother John Burns lent a hand to some lyrics and songwriting, and the band’s keyboardist, Sergio Mendoza, stepped up to co-write and arrange certain songs, ultimately co-producing the album along with Burns, John Convertino, and longtime associate Craig Schumacher.
