Amoeba Review

04/08/2013

Meixcan alt-pop star Julieta Venegas has said that her newest album is inspired by the rampant drug violence in Mexico as well as motherhood — not exactly the stuff of vibrant pop, yet that’s what she emerges with on Los Momentos. Dance single “Tuve Para Dar” channels the pain of her homeland by setting the stage of a peaceful town disrupted by violence (“era todo alegria en mi ciudad … perro mi sangre corrio … hoy inspiro temor, nadie se acerca hasta donde estoy”) miraculously over an ’80s-inspired backbeat. Venegas’ ability to transform melancholy into widely appealing music is one of her strongest suits, her voice wearily detailing a cheating a lover over a bouncy beat in “Te Vi.” The best pop tends to be the most subversive, hiding deeper meaning in music meant to appeal to the masses; in this sense, Venegas is making pop of the highest order on Los Momentos.
