Review by John Noyd
October 2013

A crackling basket of Afro-Cuban mutants peppered in traditional instruments, “Wed,” weds magical catalysts to hip-swiveling head-trips for studio-stacked ballads; cyber-sambas stalk panther-like stanzas inside symphonic harmonics and zesty techno-tangos become fetching extra-terrestrial fetes whose teasing seasonings make marvelous sun-baked dreams dance to alien bands. Cock-eyed cocktails shimmy and shake, radiating frolicking logic with rippling dizziness as Molina’s coaxing vocals layered in soothing coos beautifully accentuate each song’s exotic intoxications and foxy taste-sensations. Breezy intrigues seize tropical moxie blossoming in new and improved grooves whose oblique tweaks piece imaginative machines to sensuous temptresses while rumbling jungle beats meet seductive synthetics in infectious confections. Quirky, contagious space-age impatience chases this Argentinean’s odd-ball gestalt; flying, spiraling and defying in wiry quagmires of quizzical mysteries and overhauled histories.
