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).

Born in Argentina, Juana Molina grew up in a musical environment. Her father, revered tango singer ...

Juana Molina gets award, directs new video...


... and is coming to Europe to play 2 special shows in Paris and Bari



Juana Molina's latest album Wed 21 was ecstatically welcomed by the press around the world (see quotes below). Her native Argentina has not lagged behind, as Wed 21  has just earned the Carlos Gardel Award (the equivalent of a Grammy) for Best Alternative Rock and Pop Album of 2013.

On the video front, Juana has made a giant leap forward by co-directing the eerie and supremely charming "Lo decidí yo" ("The decision was mine", directed with Mario Caporalli). This 3rd video from the Wed 21 sees her performing considerable, ninja-like physical feats (thanks to a chroma key which she set up with lengths of fabric in her back yard).

Juana Molina will also bring her lively, exciting live show to Paris, where she has been invited by the prestigious Fondation Cartier, and to Bari Festival.

From the press on Juana Molina's Wed 21 album

A universal playfulness that’s entirely her own.  (Washington Post)

Her music still perches on the verge of delirium  (NY Times)

It's as if extra-terrestrials have had a bash at making contemporary Earthling pop music but didn't quite nail it. Fascinating, enjoyable and original, (The Independent)

On an evolutionary journey of her own devising…Transportative, like a fantastic fable…like all good storytellers, Molina's gift is in the delivery  (Pitchfork)

This might be her best work yet  (Mixmag)

Eerie, hypnotic, building to increasingly haunting heights (Spin)

Colourful worlds with buzzing electronics swarming around psychedelic rhythms (Uncut)

Always in motion, this effortless fusion of airy melody and playful eccentricity follows a perpetually fluid course (Mojo)

Like other great popular music musicians who toe the avant-garde line—Tom Waits comes to mind, as does Radiohead—there is a vision here (Pop Matters)
