Calexico/Iron & Wine Win at Second Annual Plug Awards!

Calexico has taken home the prize for "Americana Album Of The Year" with Iron & Wine for their collaborative effort In The Reins at the Second Annual Plug Awards. The awards ceremony, which took place February 2 in New York, celebrates the best in independent music.

In addition to this exciting news, the band has just wrapped up a short promotional tour to preview their upcoming Touch and Go album Garden Ruin. The tour, with stops in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, resulted in sold out shows at each venue and has garnered glowing reviews from numerous press outlets:


Calexico treated audiences to performances of Garden Ruin in its entirety at the shows. The album, which sees the band exploring new territory, is a more pop-oriented excursion for the band. But it sees the band still incorporating the sterling musicianship and imagination of past works. In short, it's a stunner and it's not to be missed. Garden Ruin will be available in stores April 11.
