“Sounds like Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier covering Nick Drake, whispering luminous folk tunes amid electronic thickets while acoustic guitars and pianos flicker like votive candles.”—Entertainment Weekly
Argentinian singer/songwriter Juana Molina (Domino Records) sumptuously blends tropical folk, bubbling electronica, and graceful rhythms to create the freshest sounds coming out of Buenos Aires today. A chanteuse with an edge of new Latin chill, the former TV comedienne is creating an international buzz for her disarming stage presence and beguiling vocals that float through ambient washes of harmonies and textures.
Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt of The Sea and Cake open the evening with music from Prekop’s latest, Who’s Your New Professor? (Thrill Jockey), a beautiful, crisp bit of offbeat pop perfection. Using a variety of unconventional guitar tunings and exotic arrangements, a closer look reveals minute patterns and completely unique structures, tones, and moods.
