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 »

On the longest day
The vanishing mind
Knows not when the day ends
Who could care for you
Would could understand

In the room sealed shut
And you’re not what you were
So much sweeter now
That there’s nothing left to
Remember you

It’s what brought you here
It’s what keeps you here
Who could care for you
Who could understand
Know not when the day ends or begins anymore
In the hallway and waiting again

Here we are, here we sit
The light turning grey
Your smile brings me back
To the longest day
The vanishing mind
