  • Summary: 'Three Things' marks the third disc for Argentina's Juana Molina, who gained fame in her native country as a sitcom star before venturing into the realm of indietronica (where she draws comparisons to Beth Orton and Lisa Germano).
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 15
  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. Far more than someone like Beth Orton -- who seems positively conventional in comparison -- she's creating a new paradigm for singer/songwriters, with electronics an integral part of her sound, rather than an afterthought.
  2. 83
    Evokes Bjork as a Latina wallflower, sketching gossamer balladry with acoustic guitar and oddball synths. [Jun 2004, p.108]
  3. A luminous combination of fragile folk and bubbling electronica. [4 June 2004, p.80]
  4. 80
    Molina's delicate vocals glide and dip, leaving Bjork earthbound on the shore and pea-green with envy. [#64, p.102]
  5. A record of mixed materials that still sounds natural; a far cry from some of folk music's more hamfisted attempts at acoustic/electronic collusion.
  6. Sounds like a recently awakened Aphex Twin in warm snooze mode. [Oct 2004, p.133]
  7. Boring strummed singer-songwritering with not terribly interesting electronica.

    good job juana! great album! you´re getting better and better! Fron "Rara" to "Tres Cosas" you can tell you´re growing as an artist/songwriter. It´s difficult to show entangled emotions in a very simple way. You and few other artists can reach that! congrats! Expand

    Subtly textured hymnotic folk electronica that retaining a feeling of relaxed unpretentiousness manages to make almost imperceptible political statements and paint images that stir your imagination evoquing your own analogous images and emotions. Exceptional. Can't wait for the next one. Expand
