Calexico and Iron & Wine — aka Sam Beam — have been out on the road this year in support of their 14-years-in-the-making second collaboration, Years to Burn, and have regularly been performing a cover of Echo & The Bunnymen’s “Bring on the Dancing Horses” — which they recorded in a live session for KEXP last summer that has just been shared by the Seattle radio station.
Check out their soaring version, complete with light mariachi horns, below.
