Review: Juliette Lewis - Terra Incognita

Juliette Lewis
Terra Incognita


Less flamboyant than her previous output with the Licks, Terra Incognita by cult favourite Juliette Lewis reveals an artier, more pensive side to the actress-turned-singer. To be precise, she’s still got that bluesy hollering thing going on but this time it’s a little more cultivated than the showy, dramatic vibe of albums past. Producer Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (of the Mars Volta) throws in a little dub vibe here (the psychedelic “Female Persecution”) and a little grinding blues there (“Hard Lovin’ Woman”), lending a commercial edge to what’s essentially an album based on nostalgia.
