Four months ago we wrote about Javiera Mena’s efforts to crowd fund her third LP, due out in 2014. Well, consider it crowd funded because today we have the U.S. premiere of the first single off that future album, “Espada.” Mena’s no stranger to pop (listen to anything she’s ever recorded) and this song is an even-further attempt at pop heights, mixed with a fair dose of techno. It’s also incredibly phallic so there’s that.
