Vienna Teng & Alex Wong: "No Gringo"

It's 2:45 am. How about some music?

You may know how much I love Vienna Teng. (I've previously posted two clips, here and here, of her performing a couple of her best songs, "Pontchartrain" and "Recessional," both off Dreaming Through the Noise (2006). Check them out. She's amazing.)

Well, here she is, with Alex Wong, performing "No Gringo," perhaps the best song off her last studio album, Inland Territory (2009). (A live version is on The Moment Always Vanishing, released earlier this year.)

It's a song about illegal immigration, reversed, imagining a time when an American family might try to get into Mexico.
