Local Motion: Luz Marina - Coincidencias
Coincidencias (Cacao Música)
Venezuelan singer/songwriter Luz Marina makes her debut for Cacao Música with 14 tracks of heavy-breathing soft numbers full of sexy insinuations and personal moments. It works. "Noche a Noche" (Night to Night) and "Cómo Dueles" (How You Hurt) were a little more my cup of tea, while the rest of the album might find welcoming ears in the Liz Phair/Stevie Nicks/Alanis Morissette-loving demographic. That's provided, of course, that the latter are Spanish speakers. Of note is the minimalist approach to production, which I found a huge relief, especially in the Latin market, where the opposite is the norm.
