Juana Molina

Juana Molina is an Argentine singer/guitarist. When she plays live she allows her long brown hair to hang in her face while she picks simple figures on her guitar and overlays them with precise vocal lines; her bushy-bearded partner Alejandro Franov supplies a sticky keyboard goo that lends the music a vaguely futuristic quality. The songs on Tres Cosas, Molina's second domestically released album, inhabit a semiconscious state between sleep and waking life: In "Sólo Su Voz," for example, she plants a full-flower chorus between minimal verses, threatening to reveal a breathtaking vista then hiding it away. This bewitching record is all about sublimated mystery.
