Calexico

Tucson-based Americana indie band Calexico makes cultural appropriation sound good, with well-conceived guitar-based melodies about border crossers and journeymen, tinged with mariachi horns and a general sadness. The two main members, Joey Burns and John Convertino, have proven album after album that although there’s nothing quite new under the desert sun, the old sounds can still evoke an abstract nostalgia for the American Southwest that is as beautiful as it is mesmerizing.
