The celebrated Tucson, Arizona band Calexico will commemorate this year's Record Store Day with the release of a brand new live album entitled Spiritoso. The disc features the band performing songs from their celebrated career including tracks from their latest record Algiers which Mojo pronounced “the album of their lives” and Pitchfork called "impeccably conceived and imaginatively crafted."
