The inimitable, wonderful, bewitching Juana Molina has now joined forces with Crammed, and we're delighted to present her new album, the awesome Wed 21. Juana who, "like Brian Wilson or Kevin Shields, pulls off the most out-there material with melodies nearly as accessible as conventional pop" (Rolling Stone, US), has variously been described as "pure genius" (Les Inrockuptibles), "beguiling" (Pitchfork), or "creating a slippery soundtrack for the subconscious" (Spin).

JUANA MOLINA: new video, tours, back-catalogue reissue


To follow up on the release of her acclaimed new album, Juana Molina is releasing a second music video, and is doing an extensive series of shows this Spring & Summer



Directed by Argentine filmmaker/artist Dr Sepian, the new video was shot in Tierra de Fuego, at the southernmost tip of the South American continent. It's inspired by the Hain initiation ceremonies which used to be performed by the Shelknam people, who were among the original inhabitants of Patagonia. Young men on the verge of puberty were sent out alone in the forest, and had to perform a series of tasks (such as hunting, or fighting demons of the forest) before being considered as grown men and allowed to come back to the fold of the tribe.

Filmed in breathtaking landscapes, this story of magic and rituals works as a perfectly apt visual illustration for a track which was described by Pitchfork as A twisting, live wire of a song that takes the listener's attention hostage and runs off into the woods… and by SPIN Magazine as being eerie, hypnotic, and building to increasingly haunting heights…

Juana Molina is closing her 3-week US tour with an L.A. show on April 27, and will soon be embarking on a long European tour from May to August, which will include appearances at festivals such as Nuits Botanique in Brussels, Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Villette Sonique in Paris, Roskilde (DK), Pohoda (SK), SummerStage in New York, Rock al Parque in Bogota (Colombia), Nuits de Fourvière in Lyon (opening for Damon Albarn),  End Of The Road (UK), as well as  shows in London, Amsterdam, Cologne, Frankfurt,  and many more to be announced soon.
