Years to Burn Singer song-writer Sam Beam has released several albums under the moniker of Iron & Wine, but in 2005 he teamed up with Calexico to record a collaborative EP, ‘In the Reins’. Calexico main-men Joey Burns and John Convertino have carved a lengthy and successful career with their unique Tex-Mex / Americana style, combining Latin sounds (particularly Mariachi) with country indie-rock. ‘In the Reins’ was made up of Beam compositions, with Calexico providing the musical backing. The two bands clearly get on well together and have toured and collaborated over a long period, but have only just got around to recording a follow-up album together.

Stephen Morris in Conversation with Dave Haslam Joy Division and successor band New Order are Manchester musical legends, with several films and books already documenting both bands’ careers and legacies, including autobiographies by band members Peter Hook and Bernard Sumner. Now JD/NO drummer Stephen Morris has joined the club, with the first volume of his autobiography, ‘Record, Play, Pause’, published this month. To launch the book Morris is doing a ‘tour’ around the UK, where he is in conversation on stage with Mancunian DJ, broadcaster and journalist Dave Haslam. Haslam also has a new book on sale, ‘Sonic Youth Slept on My Floor: Music, Manchester and More’. Haslam and Morris are old buddies, Haslam having DJ’ed at Manchester’s infamous Hacienda club, of which Morris and his New Order comrades were, of course, part owners.

So we take away the vocals and the drums usually give the songs rhythm. But if you take that away you’re simply left with almost empty sounding guitars. Well not with the latest musical endeavours from the mighty Rodrigo y Gabriela. That’s right. They’re back with immense Mexican vibes in the form of Mettavolution.
