Los Hongos de Marosa
Dar (Qué Difícil)
Editors’ Notes Though there's only one of her, Juana Molina is one of the sweetest vocal groups in Latin pop. Here, she writes acoustic-based songs in a folk/pop vein, then proceeds to mess with them in the studio, adding multiple layers of her voice, guitar, and percussion. On “Vive Solo,” she's a sonic cousin to Björk and Goldfrapp, but with fewer gadgets and a stronger sense of whimsy. The title track is a hypnotic swirl of vocal loops and interlocking melodies, while she becomes a trio of samba sirens on "El Vestido."
