Once upon the ‘80s, Juana Molina was a sketch comedian on Argentinian TV; now, she’s best known for her decades’ worth of dreamy, Spanish-language folk. Her eclectic-electronic compositions have earned her multiple comparisons to Bjork, though she’s got more in common with artists like Lisa Hannigan or Cortney Tidwell, specifically their droll-affect harmonies and multilayered tracks that reward immersing yourself in the details. For examplke, “Eras,” the lead single from last year’s Wed 21, is a meditation set to spring-rubber rhythms, a combination some artists struggle to pull off. It’s craft writ small and intricate, which has won her a devoted cult fanbase and is a perfect match for the curators at Le Poisson Rouge, where she’ll appear with Brooklyn’s spikier Xenia Rubinos.
