Ana Tijoux's 2010 breakout single "1977" didn't need English lyrics to land a prominent placement on Breaking Bad and a shout-out on Radiohead's website. On the title track of her third solo set, which translates as "I Come," the Chilean-French rapper-singer amps up her crisp, exactingly jazzy flow over brassy New York street beats wrapped in Andean flutes. The attack this time is harder, but no less thoughtful or poetic. "Vengo a construir un sueño," Tijoux declares, envisioning a world without class struggle. The gist of "Antipatriarca" should be self-explanatory. If not, it's a damn good reason to start learning Spanish.
