Songfacts®:

  • Calexico frontman Joey Burns (from Uncut magazine October 2008): "For the song Red Blooms, my eldest brother John and I were talking about this news item about 'snowdrops,' who are people who go missing during the winter in Russia. They fall in the snow. The snow piles up, and everyone is praying they are found. It's a beautiful metaphor for transformation."
