by Juana Molina
Released: Oct 2008
Label: Domino Recording Co.
On her fifth album, the Argentine future-folkie sticks to the script of her previous releases, but that's just fine. With her usual tools -- acoustic guitars, subdued percussion, subtle electronics and her wispy voice -- Molina keeps finding new passageways to a strange, subconscious realm that's bathed in light. For the delicacy of her approach, Molina's music has real muscle: beyond folk and bossa nova, you can hear references to musique concrete, ambient electronics, spaghetti westerns, Indian ragas and even Public Enemy. It's a feather duvet sewn to the specs of a fine-art museum.
