Good Golly, By Jolly, This Is Really Good! #72

The music of former comedic actress and Argentinean singer/songwriter Juana Molina takes you through journeys across exotic landscapes and into a world of unimaginable sound. Her song-crafting yields sonic collages so abstruse and intricate that reduces it to mere abstraction, but ones that are quite rare and beautiful that you find yourself instantly cozying, snug and warm amongst her intense sonic displays. Although some may perceive it as ‘World music’, her creations are at best described as ambient. It’s straight away apparent how Juana Molina’s songs are often demanding of the mood and setting, replacing it in favour of an atmosphere that is analogous to its own hypnotic passages. Here’s a video profile that’ll make you fall even more in love with her music:

Juana Molina - El Vestido

Although I do love her latest release, Un Día just fine, I personally much prefer this tune:
