4.0 out of 5 stars A Gentle Kind Of Magic, 2 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Wed 21 (Audio CD)
Argentinian singer/sonwriter Juana Molina has over her last several
albums moved increasingly away from her acoustic folk-oriented roots
into the exploration of integrating technology with her muse. This
development seems to me to have been at once both successful and shrewd.

Her new recording 'Wed 21' is a collection of twelve inventions which
demonstrate her tenacity and creativity in an absorbing mix of tricksy
Latin rhythms, sinuous melodies and cleverly-crafted vocal harmonies.
Ms Molina's voice, whilst not being the most powerful of instruments,
has a sensuous breathy charm which more than makes up for its limitations.

Opening track 'Eras' is a cracker; a laid-back staccato composition full
of beguiling beats and nicely off-kilter synth decorations. 'Sin Guia, No'
combines a simple bluesy tune with deliriously spooky shape-shifting vocal
cadences to fine effect and 'Ay, No Se Ofendan' gradually builds from its
hesitant, brooding introduction to an exhilarating climax of riotous tribal
percussion and multi-tracked vocals exploding like fireworks in a night sky.

There's more than a little magic at work here.

I'm happy to have fallen under Ms Molina's spell!

Recommended.
