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 »

Well the girl in the forest
Reached out to ease my worried mind
Stopped me from falling into a downward spiral
I was worn by the city until I finally let go
Drifted out to the Sierras on an empty road

And careless love
Won't get you far
I found a book of John Muir's
In an abandoned car

Mmm well the world was spinning so fast
Nobody took the time
It was the girl in the forest
Who opened my eyes

What part of nature can you honestly say
Is beyond your explanations for short term gain
Something's got to change before everything's

Gonna disappear right before our eyes
And we finally face ourselves alone in the forest
Where so much rides on which path we decide oh, mmm
