Boomkat Product Review:
Argentina's sonic sorceress takes to Belgium's revered Crammed Discs for her first album in five years. Since Domino's 'Un Día' release she's kept active with a remix on the 'Tradi-Mods Vs Rockers: Alternative Takes on Congotronics' compilation and acting duties in her homeland, but not much else in the public sphere. It would appear she's not been slacking, though, as 'Wed 21' showcases a more fleshed out, layered sound incorporating a richer palette of instrumentation including wonderfully weird synthlines, rippling percussions and broader appreciation of texture to accentuate her delightfully kooky melodic sensibility. At times she's approaching Silver Apples-esque psychedelia ('Lo Decidi Yo') at others beautifully exploring bittersweet dissonance ('Bicho Auto') and lysergic, gently insistently rhythmic folk music ('El Oso De La Guarda' or 'Simn Guia, No') and often all at the same time, unified by that distinctly fairy-like vocal. It's a charming, forward-thinking and otherworldly suite.
