Segundo in particular is terribly pretty but also pretty inconsequential - I'm hard pressed to recall a single track from it. It'd be churlish to call her crap though - there's a beguiling off-kilter pop sensibility at work and I like her flyweight electronics, cobweblike arrangements and occaisonal forays into muted, clattering rhythms.

What I like even more is her working as a mainstream TV actress to fund her albums - it's like Courtney Cox quietly releasing collections of feintly exotic latin-tinged electronic pop. If she wasn't a humourless surfboard with granny claws.

Halo is so good. Really dig "Cosoco", but the album is great in its entirety.

No mierda. Muy bonita.

Great guitarist, beautiful voice - not crap, although I'm still deciding whether I prefer the sparseness of her earlier acoustic albums or the full (electronic) band direction she decided to pursue on "Wed 21".
The panda made me do it.

It's fun to watch her and her band pull this stuff off live.

i opened to her band once. she's a great, if not a bit excentric / quirky.
her band is AMAZING. the other two guys are super tight and play they sparse parts with perfection. she also has the keyboardist plugged to her own big boss looper so she can loop him as she wishes - i think it's a neat way to work with another musician.
i don't enjoy that much her albums but her live show is very very good. try to catch her if you see her on tour.

Yeah, those guys are nuts. I hope she never stops playing with them. I love it when everything goes haywire on the back half of "Ay, No Se Ofendan".

I've listened to nothing but her last two albums these last couple of weeks. I'm inspired and a little obsessed. She's playing NYC, SF, and Mexico City next month. If I weren't so damn poor right now, I'd fly out to one of those shows.

This came up on youtube recently. I thought it was really cool. I sometimes wonder how much of Juana's voice is lost to that effect she likes to use on her recordings, but judging by this, not much.

I haven't really listened to her first couple of albums yet. The last two are so rich and somehow stark and dense at the same time. I come back to them over and over again.

They're playing Thalia Hall on 4/9.

oh man! Good looking out. The link to buy tickets doesn't seem to be working, and it isn't up on Thalia Hall's calendar, but I plan to snatch these up with a quickness when they're available.

Yeah, what is that? It's the type of thing that should instantly date it but it never loses its cool eeriness.

Kind of a latecomer to Halo and it's NC.

Faiz sent me a link to Juana Molina's music last night.

12 hours later it is actually all I can listen to/think about/wonder why I'd passed up before.

I absolutely thought this was NPR music or cheesy world music.

Happy to admit I was a fucking moron.

This album, Halo, is N U T S. Amazing.

Happy to help!
Sad to find that all her U.S. dates have been cancelled.
Was unreasonably excited to check her and her band out live.
hopefully, they'll reschedule!


Picked up Wed 21 the other day, and really like it a lot.

NC!

Jeezus, what a weirdo. "OK, we'll start the video with me as a sweatshop boss slave-driving a bunch of other me's, then I shake my tits, then a fashion show, then I collapse, then I get reprimanded by me while in a tinsel costume, then I go down a psychedelic wormhole, and end it with me in a noodle costume."

Reposting because there was something screwy with your link.

I still listen to Halo on the reg. Can't say that about most albums released in the past few years.
