Wed 21. Juana Molina. 3. Ferocísimo Lyrics.
In the five years since Argentine singer/songwriter Juana Molina released Un Dia, her sound has undergone a subtle but distinct shift. On Wed 21 (named for the date she finished the title track, Wednesday, November 21), the intricate layering of electronics, from rhythms to delays and adornments, remains intact, as does her organic reliance on lyric melody. What is immediately apparent is the wider instrumental palette at work. In addition to acoustic guitars and drum machines, Molina employs myriad electric guitars, basses, a drum kit, organ samples, a horn, and more detailed electronics.
Wed 21" represents a step further into Juana Molina's aesthetics and her brand new electric guitar brought with it some renewed inspiration. Still, this sixth album isn't a departure from the songstress' previous recordings, it is more an extension of them. A parallel could be drawn with Bob Dylan's passage to electricity in the mid-60s before recording "Highway 61 Revisited", Dylan's songs became sonically more rock while retaining its folk idioms
He is a wounded veteran of the city once claimed by Black Panthers and hustlers. He is a vital voice in what the New York Times called "the hottest city in America. His album, The Last Days of Oakland, is about the fallout and rebirth that comes in the wake of a seismic shift. It is intensely relevant - the way his city has always been. - Written and Produced by Xavier Amin Dphrepaulezz Sound Engineering - Miguel Maloles, Jabari Tawiah Mixed by Matt Winegar Mastered by Dave McNair Publishing by Angry Ant Publishing Art by Nick Francis.
Argentine singer/songwriter Juana Molina crafts an impressive world for herself in her latest album, Wed 21. This record presents the artist in top-form, with the most eccentric and creative arrangements ever found in her career. From acoustic guitar strumming to weird electronic scratches to otherworldly processed sounds, Molina displays maturity and creativity to balance all of the many details incorporated in the tracklisting, making this a very intriguing experience from start to finish,.
With Wed 21, Argentine singer/actress Juana Molina delivers the most satisfying realisation of her Latin-tinged folktronica style. Opener Eras sets the tone, its woozy pulse and cymbal shimmer joined by a guitar part which seems to regard the rest of the melody askance. Wed 21 is an infectious groove, Molina's gentle Spanish vocal hovering warmly. Ferocisimo offers a sort of Tropicália psych-rock, while Lo Decidi Yo finds delicate guitar lines profitably sabotaged by electronic buzzes and rolling drums. Fascinating, enjoyable and original
