The Spanish musician Jairo Zavala has collaborated widely, most notably with Calexico, and the Tucson alt-rockers return the favour on this project on which Zavala dubs himself Depedro.

The music has a similar sense of desert space, but the keyboards, bright and edgy, make this more than a retro exercise.

The title track and the bilingual ‘All The Way To The Ground’, in particular, have naggingly-insinuating melodies.
