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 »

In the afternoon of orange blossom days
Hummingbirds rest above where we lay
You say it’s ok, no need to fret
The weight of it all will ease as we find
The balance in each step we make

Swinging back n’ forth in a palo verde tree
The wind in the needles hushes you asleep
Even with the strain, your heart remains
Don’t doubt why darlin’
In time you will find we’re alright we were born
Like the branch to bend and not to break

Reconcile and resurrect, tombstone rose
Growing up and over the gates to where our children play
The future wraps ‘round like vines
Inside these arms

Darlin’ will you say in our final embrace
Before returning ‘neath the clay
After all that your heart still remains
