“In the lassa” by Juana Molina
Argentine electronic singer, Juana Molina released her album Halo, last spring via Crammed Discs. This fall she will be touring North American cities. Juana, recently shared her new animated video for the single “In the lassa,” which resembles a classic action video game, featuring Juana as a “bone” (theme of her new album).
Halo is Juana Molina’s seventh album. The twelve tracks in Halo abound with hypnotic rhythms which seem to draw their energy from immemorial rituals; with timbral explorations and ever-changing soundscapes; with mysterious lyrics often touching on witchcraft, premonition and dreams, always used as metaphors for emotional states; with voices which sometimes move away from word and meaning to be reduced to abstract phonemes and onomatopoeia.
Juana approaches music in a very physical, intuitive way: every instrument and electronic resource is an extension of her body, and is used to express feelings and moods. It’s magic, in its oldest sense: art or techné, which articulates knowing with doing, in order to produce something which didn’t exist before.
