Maquiladora is three multi-instrumentalists from San Diego. Founded in 1995 in London by singer Phil Beaumont (God Machine's manager) and drummer Eric Nielsen as Loraine, they became Maquiladora when the two returned to California and enrolled guitarist Bruce McKenzie. This is their fifth album of Western, desert/folk, country/rock of the mellowest and most gently mind-expanding kind. Think Calexico, Giant Sand, Court & Spark, Beechwood Sparks or Cowboy Junkies. Darla. 2005.
