The ever-prolific Arizona ensemble Calexico's CONVICT POOL EP offers a mix of covers and original tunes. The title track is a hauntingly spare song featuring only founding members Joey Burns and John Convertino, with Burns's vocals taking on a more emotive quality than that of his usually hushed delivery. "Sirena" includes the full band and mines Calexico's Latino leanings, while the Minutemen song "Corona" is transformed into a boisterous mariachi tune. The high point of the EP, however, proves to be the group's take on the Love song "Alone Again Or" (also notably covered by the Damned). Here Calexico joins forces with Scandinavian singer Nicolai Dunger for an amazingly catchy, acoustic-guitar-driven version of this '60s pop classic, showcasing the most dynamic elements of the consistently intriguing Calexico sound.
