Calexico

Calexico is a Tucson, Arizona-based Americana / Tex-Mex / indie rock band. The band's two main members, Joey Burns and John Convertino, first played together in Los Angeles as part of the group Giant Sand. They have recorded a number of albums on Quarterstick Records, while their 2005 EP In the Reins recorded with Iron & Wine has reached the Billboard 200 album charts. Their musical style is influenced by traditional Latin sounds of mariachi / conjunto / cumbia / Tejano music and also the Southwestern United States country music as well as '50s-'60s jazz and '90s-'00s post-rock, and they have been described by some as "desert noir" or indie rock. The band is named for the border town of Calexico, California. more »

Going on their lands for sale to stake my claim 
Burn my name in the soil 
Out past the borders beyond the hill 
Through seasons of nothing 
Safe for the self-destructive world 
Memories get altered 
No point of reference to hold 
And it feels like someone is watching 
As I tear into the skin of innocence 
And decadence for awhile 

So we settled in and half the veins where blood runs pure 
Troubled the cure for a short while 
Out in the dust they suffocate the sprawl and greed 
Bent on breed and stare 
And children stare 
Stare through shiny little boxes 
Over landscape that is quickly foiled
