Bloody floor

I don't know how it is that, given my desert wanderings, I've never programmed anything here by Tucson's Calexico. This is "Ghostwriter" from their somewhat atypical 2005 album The Book And The Canal, atypical in that usually they mix some Mexican sounds -- some accordion, some flamenco guitar, etc. -- into their music. This is more of a straight-up murder ballad in the folk tradition, down on the border, in the borderlands where life is cheap. Enjoy (?).
