  • 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.
