Un Dia, the fourth
release on Domino Records from Argentinean artist Juana Molina is set to be
released on Oct 7. It’s being called “a brave departure from her previous work
(with pronounced rhythms and bold low end) [but] every bit a Juana record, as
personal and intimate as always.”

 

 

The album was recorded by Molina, with guitar assists by
Gareth Dickson (from Vashti Bunyan’s band) at her home outside Buenos Aires.

 

 

Commenting on the record, Molina noted, in a statement, “I noticed
the rhythm in the music on previous records was tacit. There, but concealed.
Some people didn’t feel there was any kind of rhythm at all!  On this album I decided to make what was
pretty obvious for me, more obvious to others, to bring it to the front.  All that was insinuated in the past is now
more tangible, hearable.”

 

 

More background from her label:

 

For the uninitiated, Juana Molina grew up
in Argentina, and was exiled
to Paris with
her family at the age of 12. Her father is THE coolest of cool old school Tango
singers and her mother an actress. Juana herself spent many years as a comedic
TV star in South America but made a complete
break with acting at the height of her career to return to music (a move that,
which must be noted, was met with nothing short of hostility back home).

 

 

Since
releasing her first album, Juana has won praise from all corners. She counts
David Byrne, NPR and The New York Times among her many
supporters. She is adored by a loyal fanbase drawn by a sound that is like no
other.

 

 

“Un día voy a cantar las canciones sin letra y cada uno
podrá imaginar si hablo de amor, de desilusión, banalidades o sobre platón,”
says Juana.

Or in English “One day i will sing the songs with no lyrics and everyone
can imagine for themselves if it’s about love, disappointment, banalities or
about Plato. Un Dìa (one day).”
