Juana Molina Is Wicked Good, La Reina De Los Bucles

I bought the digital download of Juana Molina’s latest album from Amie Street, and have become addicted.

Juana’s music is based to a large extent on her mastery of looping, but her songs are never slaves to the looper paradigm; in fact I never thought about her music as being the product of looping until I watched the video below. She is Argentina’s answer to Björk — not that she sounds like Björk so much as the fact that she’s a woman who has invented her own art. She’s very much embedded in the larger tradition of modern South American music, but is her own woman; you might hear echoes of Bossa Nova or Tango or whatever, but she’s a genre of one, literally sui generis.
