The bewitching Argentine singer, songwriter is known for her distinctive experimental pop sound

Juana Molina has ploughed a furrow of fulsome, hypnotic electronic folk for some time now, and the harvest she yields just gets better. It’s up against some strong competition, but Halo is a strong candidate for Molina’s best record to date

She’s back with yet another masterpiece album, overflowing with emotions, musical ideas and mysterious atmospheres. With Halo, Juana Molina picks up where she left off with her previous acclaimed album Wed 21, and shows once more that she really is “on an evolutionary journey of her own devising”, which has brought the “eerie, hypnotic” music on each of her albums “to increasingly haunting heights .

“Halo” is Juana Molina’s seventh album, it contains twelve songs and was recorded in her home studio outside of Buenos Aires, and at Sonic Ranch Studio in Texas, with contributions by Odin Schwartz & Diego Lopez de Arcaute (who have both been playing live with Juana for a number of years), and Eduardo Bergallo (who has taken part in the mixing of her previous albums), with Deerhoof’s John Dieterich making a guest appearance in a couple of tracks.
