World Music Wednesday
So I had said that when I have some interesting world music to post, Wednesday will be the day for that business. Today "something good" comes in the form of Juana Molina:
If you read other blogs, you may have heard of Juana Molina - and for good reason. Molina is an Argentinian folk chanteuse who sings very muted, intimate guitar songs with a fascinating underpinning of gentle electronica layers. Everyone compares her to Swede folkster José González (check out his cover of The Knife's Heartbeats), again for good reason.
Her new album Son will be released June 6 in the States (on Domino Records) and sounds very promising from what I have heard. Mellow, hypnotic goodness that will also allow you to brush up on your Español whilst you listen.
No Seas Antipática - Juana Molina
Micael - Juana Molina
If you visit her website and click on the tall red flower (I know, tricky) there is a section with 6 free downloads, 2 off each of her previous releases.
She is also on tour with José González in the coming months, check her out!
