And Girls Can Tell wraps all that is great about Spoon up in a shiny new package. It's been nearly three years since Spoon's last album, A Series of Sneaks, rocked heads and broke hearts, and even though the band was without a label for most of that time, they forged ahead with the writing and recording of Girls Can Tell anyway. They had more than enough time to get the album sounding just right, and it definitely shows in the finished product.

Such is the case with Spoon; their perennial indie rock underdog status and disastrous stint on Elektra have focused and tempered the trio's brash energy instead of crushing it. Their third full-length, Girls Can Tell, reflects the group's lean, hungry stance in its spare, spiky, immaculately crafted songs

Girls Can Tell could easily be regarded as the first modern Spoon album. The trademarks of a Spoon album are all here: churning, brief piano melodies, palm muted licks, mid-tempo drumming in the pocket, plucky leads, understated bass. However, the magic of Girls Can Tell is in the thin, crisp production. Overdubs are few and far between. The layering that comes to the front of the recording is usually vocal harmonies.

If you were a fan of early Spoon’s maneuvering sloppiness, which I wasn’t, you were no doubt taken back by their new sound, one that’s a bit haunting, excessively clean and for some reason, the opening number “Everything Hits At Once” hazes with memories of Bowie’s Hunky Dory.That being said, Girls Can Always Tell comes off as a self assured recap of Spoon’s best and most proficient material, as if they’d cannibalized their past catalog, driving slowing, ebbing forward with an eerie understated sinisterness, filled with enough vibrant melodic edges to hold your attention. Of course this is all to be expected, as the album’s nearly entirely about girls, finding girls, assessing girls, losing girls, and pining for girls, with no inherent notion of what’s going on in the mind of a girl. With that underlying theme, Spoon seem to have developed into a full fledged indie band here, yet they still appear to be in the midst of attempting to resolve or reconcile the distinctive quirkiness and tics that brought them such favor on earlier albums. Even so, Spoon still revel in their outward off kilter presentations, an aspect that’s deeply ingrained in their sound, meaning that with the new attitude that’s surfaced on this outing, that angular kilter is even more evident.Yes, gone are the familiar modern-rock tendencies, with Girls favoring the building of structures within structures, as if mixing yesterday’s sensibilities with today’s grander visions (along with a major record label). To my ears there’s a dysphoria found within these grooves, as if Spoon have been looking too longingly into the eyes of Elvis Costello, especially with their lyrical delivery, a man I’ve never been enamored with, but seriously, they do manage to serve up this platter with catchy sharp pointed lyrics and songwriting. Of course, for many this will move Spoon into the intellectual music realm, not a place I’m sure they want to settle, though for now, Spoon seem to be rather comfortable in their Men’s Wearhouse style, with its thin crisp production and chilled transparent honest atmosphere, an entirely uncomplicated atmosphere of simplistic brutishness. Yet there still remains an undercurrent of contrast and roughness laced though each track, though that roughness is being held in check … if barely, as menacing strings attempt to fashion a sort of metallic tenderness that’s out of step with everything I know or embrace, though the times in which we now find our lives are far more insulary than ever.Yet through it all, Spoon have remained an almost unknown band, where it took nearly ten years for Girls Can Tell to sell more than 100,000 units.
