Juana Molina used to be a comedian in her native Argentina. Then she dropped the comedian shtick, and between 1996 and today, she put out a couple of homemade solo albums that were delicate, whispery, and bubbling with electronics. They were very well received and, no, they are not comedy albums. What? Is that a problem for you? Are you disappointed? Did you expect something else?

Juana’s gonna be bringing her decidedly un-funny music to the unwashed American masses this February with her first-ever full-band U.S. tour. She’ll likely be playing a bunch of songs from her 2008 Domino Records release Un Día (which made #16 on our year-end favorites list), and maybe if we’re really, really lucky, she’ll play “The Chanukah Song.”
