Argentinian multi-talented and inventive artist Juana Molina has not released an album in five long years. This Autumn will see the end of this hiatus as she returns with a new full-length album called Wed 21, the follow up to 2008′s Un Día.
Slated for a October 28th release via Crammed Discs, Wed 21 was composed, performed, recorded and produced by Molina in her studio in Buenos Aires.
Molina, who has on previous albums chosen to be more minimal, using mainly guitars and layers of vocals, this time ventured to enrich Wed 21‘s musical spectrum with the addition of electric guitars, bass, drums and electronics, as the press release notes. “In some of the tracks, Juana comes as close to a pop song format and to a full band sound as she ever did… while some other pieces are sinuous excursions through gamuts of feelings & textures”.
‘Eras’ is the first delightfully jubilant taste to emerge and it’s clear evidence that Wed 21 will be an album to look out for. Listen to ‘Eras’ below.
