Track of the day : Juana Molina : Eras

Juana Molina - "Eras" (from the upcoming album Wed 21)

It shouldn’t really matter that Argentinian singer-songwriter Juana Molina used to be a comedienne, still best known at home as the star of a sketch show that finished twenty years ago, but that pop trivia nugget seem to pop up every time she releases an album. In fact, it could be more relevant than you might think: perhaps it’s her background in making people smile that gives her songs the warm fuzzy glow that sets her so far apart from many of her crossover world music contemporaries. “Eras”, the lead single from forthcoming sixth long-player Wed21 (out October 29 via new label Crammed Discs), is as playful and pleasant as we’ve come to expect, breezy Latin jazz rhythms and subtly shimmering electronics colliding under Molina’s acoustic guitar and wispy vocals; listen below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
