We gave it a B+

Molina’s third disc envelops the listener from start to finish, even though the Argentinean’s gentle voice wouldn’t wake a sleeping toddler. A luminous combination of fragile folk and bubbling electronica, Tres Cosas balances stark, seesawing melodies with droning computer moans and sparkles, like some organic-digital mix of Nick Drake and Brian Eno. The Spanish lyrics might keep the meanings at arm’s length, but the beauty of the music needs no translation.
