On the ragged, rollicking Kiko, Los Lobos showcase the many sides of roots rock and how Americana and Tex-Mex fusions coalesce. On the one hand, they master heartfelt boleros with poetic poignancy, such as the banjo arpeggio-decorated “Two Janes” and the dusty, countrified “When the Circus Comes.” And on the other, they get down ‘n’ dirty with good-time debauchery, as on the blues-soaked “Whiskey Trail.” The mysterious, hypnotic “Kiko and the Lavender Moon”—with its suspenseful piano keys and insatiable accordion riffs—crowns this masterpiece.
