Javiera Mena—Espada

World,

I found out recently that one of my favorite artists—Chilean pop songwriter Javiera Mena—released a new album. It’s called Espada and it’s pretty tite. Here’s the single:

Espada shows a significant departure in scope and style from Mena’s earlier work. Consider ‘Al Siguente Nivel,’  taken from her first album, Esquemas Juveniles:

 

Or how about ‘Sufrir,’ taken from her second album Mena, which features some cross-pollination from mooneyed Swede Jens Lekman:

 

Hope you enjoy ‘em.

-Michael
