Calexico - spoke (1995)


AMG review
The back cover photo of Spoke is a furrowing farm machine. When I see such machinery working, clouds of birds follow to eat up the disturbed insects. Calexico snatches up the bits of Americana turned out by a rototilling of the national music psyche. The nineteen resultant tracks can be insect small (0:28 to 3:54) and erratic in flight. The tracks are lo-fi songs suggested and themes follow without concern for what preceded. 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.

Other Albums:
calexico - feast of wire
calexico - even my sure things fall
calexico - alone again
calexico - hot rail
calexico - convict pool
calexico - aerocalexico
calexico - iron and wine in reigns

Could you re-up this at all? I've been looking for their debut.
