"Un Dia"


(originally released in 2008)

Like Brian Wilson or Kevin Shields, Molina pulls off the most out-there material with melodies nearly as accessible as conventional pop.
(Rolling Stone, US)

A proof of pure genius. Un Dia is Camille's madness meeting the sorcery of Animal Collective, Sufjan Stevens drawing up loops for Björk… Breaking away from the folk-pop canon, Juana Molina comes up with an incredible record of trance music in which, like John Coltrane, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Danyel Waro, she doesn't aim at losing consciousness, but rather at reaching a higher lever of knowledge. Juana Molina, liberated from the weight of convention, accesses here a dimension rarely attained by most of mere mortals: that of pure music (Les Inrockuptibles, FR)

Sensitive souls, beware: Juana Molina emits powerful hallucinogenic vibes, creating a slippery soundtrack for the subconscious. Constantly shifting layers of sound generate a freaky sensation of vertigo, with Molina's overdubbed voice swirling, soaring, and chattering in seemingly endless combinations, prodded by rubbery rhythms that refuse to lock into a steady groove (Spin, US)

On each of her beguiling albums, Molina has dissected and detailed the individual components of songs not just as rhythms or melodies or words, but as malleable sounds-- sounds that collide, connect, and complement one another. Her music is pop song as bricolage, the whole greater than the sum of its sometimes conventional, often unusual parts. (Pitchfork, US)
