Juana Molina has a new album out. I love her music. It is going to be fantastic. Listen to it here. Wed 21 is her first album since Un Dia released in 2008 which was also fantastic. I read a little blurb about the album last week and from what I read her new album fits in perfect with her back catalog which is just what a wanted to hear because as the old adage goes, If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
[ Update ]
Listening to Juana Molina makes me happy. This album is fantastic. I need hear this absolutely amazing voice live in concert again.
Another thing about her music that has been made very clear to me this morning is just how great it is that she sings in a language I don’t under stand. Because her lyrics are in Spanish I get to come up with my own narrative each time I hear one of her songs. I am not forced to live with the tyranny that most English speaking (singing) artist impose on their listeners; forcing them to only hear lyrics about a single topic of the artists choosing. Here each song is about a subject of my choosing and that is a much greater gift than I had ever realized prior to listening to this LP.
