The indie electronic-folk artist puts on a mesmerizing live performance
Juana Molina w/ Xenia Rubinos(Le) Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street, New York, NY) Map it $15
Fresh off a mesmerizing performance at Lollapalooza Argentina, Juana Molina makes her long-awaited return to the US. Essentially a one-woman band, Molina's last album, Wed 21, was met with thunderous applause. Composed, performed and produced by Molina in her own studio, the record finds the electronic-folk artist broadening her instrumentation to include electric guitars, bass and drums. The result is a plush sonic landscape that one doesn’t mind transversing over and over again. Her live performances are quite a sight and find her recreating the songs onstage using loops, effects and a guitar. For a sample, check out the video for Eras off her new album below. A full helping can be had at (Le) Poisson Rouge tonight, with Xenia Rubinos opening.
