Geography and Immigration Inspire Calexico's Road Songs

Geography has always played an important role in Calexico's music. You'll hear it in the lyrics about drifters to the instrumentals that straddle musical traditions. It's even apparent in their band name - Calexico is a town on the California-Mexico border. And for their latest album, wandering dominates again.
