This week’s broadcast of Mountain Stage features the Americana Tex-Mex indie rock music of Calexico, who made their fourth appearance on the show. You’ll also hear the dreamlike soundscapes of Irish alt-folk artist Anna Mieke, music from David Wax Museum‘s new album You Must Change Your Life, Americana music pioneer Steve Forbert, and folk singer-songwriter and activist David Huckfelt.

Our Song of the Week comes from indie rockers, Calexico. Their performance of “Cumbia de Donde,” from their album Edge of the Sun, is a bilingual masterpiece that puts an original spin on mariachi music. Calexico also performed songs from their newest album El Mirador, including “Harness the Wind” and title song “El Mirador.”

Tune in to this week’s episode starting Friday, May 12 on these public radio stations.
