Juana Molina - "Eras"

New Musicjeremy1 Comment

Juana Molina used to be a hit comedic actress in her native Argentina, but ever since 1996, she has been making decidedly less funny work as a singer-songwriter. She crafts a unique blend of acoustic and electronic sounds, and often creates labyrinthine layers of her vocals. Her new album, Wed 21, comes out in October, and it’s her first since 2008’s glorious Un Día. This first song to drop from it is built upon a thumping, tricky meter, and simple, repetitious guitar riffs. The English chorus of “Come, come quickly” is oddly catchy, and the whole thing remains positively warm. Excited to see what the album brings.

Stream the track above via soundcloud. Wed 21 comes out on October 29 on Crammed Discs.
