Juana Molina is a quietly unsettling singer-songwriter from Argentina who specialises in experimental folktronica, mixing acoustic styles and electronica in songs that constantly switch between charming and quirky to downright spooky. On the album cover, her face appears to have morphed into a bone, like a witch from some ancient ceremony, while on the slow and doomy Lentísimo Halo there are references to an evil light which appears in Argentine folk tales.
com coming out May 5t. .On her excellent new album, Juana Molina continues shedding formal pop structures to reveal more of her own artistic voice. Her occultish narrative is defined not by words, but by moods.
Album · 2017 · 12 Songs. While folktonica innovator Juana Molina has always explored unease, even her longtime fans may be surprised by the all-consuming darkness of Halo. Gone are the gorgeous acoustic melodies and gently humming rhythms, replaced by abstract swirls of skittering beats and electronic drones that rumble with dread. Her trademark vocal experiments remain, but they’ve grown ominous. She pitch-shifts herself into an unearthly choir on Sin Dones, and layers ghostly harmonies over the rattling groove of In the Lassa.
Nearly four years removed from her Wed 21 LP, Argentina's Juana Molina has lifted the curtain on the details behind her seventh album. Titled Halo, Molina's latest work arrives on May 5 through Crammed Discs. Twelve tracks in length, Halo was recorded in Molina's home studio outside of Buenos Aires and at Sonic Ranch Studio in Texas. Backing her musically are live bandmates Odin Schwartz and Diego Lopez de Arcaute, in addition to Eduardo Bergallo. Deerhoof's John Dieterich is also featured on the record.
Completely free of genre restraints, ‘Halo’ is an album that exists purely on its own terms. It’s independently spirited but it’s certainly not indie.
