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 ...

From the press on "Halo": 

 Finest yet from the idiosyncratic electronicist. A treat where acoustic and electronic elements thrive in magical harmony. Halo digs deep into the unknown and brings back unexpected brilliance.  MOJO (UK)

Argentinian experimentalist's eerie, excellent seventh. Haunting, bassy and electronic. Molina has managed to tap into a fertile, mysterious muse. (Uncut, UK)

She's spent the last two decades constructing her own magical world with experimentalist electronica as her base. It's endlessly bewitching.
(Mixmag, UK)

Juana Molina doesn't just write songs, she creates environments (Stereogum, US)

A deep sense of spiritual ritual spreads across Halo, through spry dances animated by metallic percussion and zealous chants that echo like secret religious observances happening in deep woods. Each track brings its own weather.
(NPR, US)

Her most spellbinding album to date, Halo sees Juana Molina revisit her inimitable electronized folk trance, after having dipped her guitar and vocal cords in a cauldron of magic potion.
