Juana Molina defies easy description. She first gained fame in her native Argentina as an actress and comedienne. Then gave it all up to pursue a second career in music.

So it’s no surprise that her music is equally difficult to pin down. Often trance-like and haunting, her mix of electronica, folk, looping, samples, and psychedelia draws you in and keeps you delightfully off-balance.

Juana Molina just released her sixth album, Wed 21, last fall. Like most of her records, it was recorded at home. The songs almost sound like ongoing experiments in sound, with layers added, manipulated, and eventually coalescing into an engrossing cacophony that’s hard to turn away from.

She played a pair of songs from Wed 21 at OPB in April.
