The Merge Records Blog had a post referring to another blog– likely it was More Cowbell— where they posted a live mp3 of Calexico covering “Ocean of Noise” from Neon Bible by Arcade Fire. Jim Blackwell, the Official Calexico Archivist, pulled a better version from the archives for Merge. “Ocean of Noise” on Neon Bible features Martin Wenk and Jacob Valenzuela from Calexico which makes it a good song for Calexico to cover.
