Second the recommendation. Have really been enjoying it the last couple of weeks....

Triple up on the recommendation.
The other record Mr. Beam put out with Calexico backing him is also quite good--"In The Reins" from 2005. The vinyl EP has excellent sound, and mine is a nice, quiet pressing.
I like Sam Beam's guitar playing and his singing--not to mention that, lyrically, his songs are unusually mature and well-realized--but I have to say that his records, when recorded solo, can be a bit, umm, snoozeworthy. But the collaboration with Calexico yields extraordinary results. Let's hope they keep it up.
