Juana Molina, ‘Un Dia’ (Domino)

Sensitive souls, beware: Juana Molina will mess your head up. On her fifth album, the Argentinean TV actress 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. Depending on your mental state, the otherworldly “Vive Solo” could signify a sunny day or the onset of a harrowing nightmare.
