Chasing Cool - Music Edition

If you're growing tired of your current playlists or maybe you're shuffle is begging for some new bits you might check out Argentinian Juana Molina.

I'd affectionately describe her music as down-tempo acoustic cotton candy with a twist of electronica. This is just the kind of undemanding musical pudding that can decorate the air waves while you brainstorm your next blog entry.

Some folks compare Juana'a music to Bjork but I fail to see the similarities. I imagine this is marketing speak for: "Hey, you liked that weired Icelandic chick, right? Well Juana's weired too. You should check her out."

I'm reminded more of Brian Eno, Adrian Belew, Robert Fripp and just about anything from Windham Hill Records in circa 1980.
