Calexico snatch up the bits of Americana turned out by a rototilling of the national music psyche. The 19 resultant tracks can be small as insects (the shortest being half a minute in length) and erratic in flight; there are lo-fi songs and themes that proceed without concern for what came before. One bit is held up by guitar, another by accordion, then one by vibes. A bit of desert dust sprinkled throughout may be the only constant theme - a Santa Fe rummage sale of sounds. Spoke is very intriguing and well worth exploring.

The band's first record is not uncommon of debuts: lo fidelity, soft spoken, establishing a unique though not-quite-there-yet sound. The thing that makes Spoke a great listen though is the musical quality. Littered though the albums 19 tracks are gems like "Spokes", "Wash", "Removed" and opener "Low Expectations", songs that are short examples of why Calexico is a unique band. Their range of European influences is their main strength, covering Spanish flamenco on "Sanchez", surf instrumentals a la Breeders on "Scout", zydeco on "Mazurra", French fairy tale style orchestration on "Point Vincent", and Baltic, Arabic, and Mediterranean instrumentals scattered throughout. They have not settled on a style to pick on yet, but it is no surprise they hail from Arizona because all of the songs have this "desert" quality that represents the Southeastern US. The band shows its influences on its sleeves: both main members came from Howie Gelb's similar themed Giant Sand, the songs that are very short have meaning like their influences The Minutemen and Wire's did.It is interesting to pinpoint other "desert" band mid-90's counter parts throughout the record ("Slag" is a dead ringer for "Pepper" by the Butthole Surfers, while Fastball ripped off "Glimpse" for not one, but two of their only hit singles). In all, Spoke is truly an album experience, so to take one of these songs out of context would detract from the point. It is meant to be listened to all the way through, no more no less. Some people would say the band has not found their sound yet and that this is a confusing listen (it is a tad inconsistent throughout), but I choose to think the variety adds rather than detracts. It is the kind of album that is perfect for road trips or simply for sitting around the house and dreaming up ideas. Spoke is a great start for a band that could literally, take any shape or form here on and succeed.
