Dang, a lot of news to catch up on for Dana Falconberry! Loyal readers know that Antenna Farm is super excited to be releasing her upcoming LP, Leelanau, on October 9th. She released the first single from the record, Lake Charlevoix, back in August and then premiered the video for the song over at Spin.com.
But then last week NPR got their hands on the record, and they seem to like it as well. First they included the first track from Leelanau, Birch Bark, on the NPR Fall Music Preview, alongside great cuts by Neil Young, Flying Lotus, The Coup, Jason Lytle and Ben Gibbard amongst others. And then, Robin Hilton, host of All Songs Considered, gushed as follows:
“My new favorite is Dana Falconberry. She’s been putting out records for a few years, but only popped up on my radar this week. She’s got a fantastic new record coming out soon called Leelanau, which includes this meticulously crafted little gem, “Crooked River.”
Check out the full post (and stream the track Crooked River) at NPR.
The Crooked River digital single is on sale at iTunes, Amazon and many other fine digital music retailers. It comes with a unique (and quite excellent) demo version of Lake Charlevoix as a non-album B-side. Stoked!
Meanwhile, back in Austin, Dana is prepping for her October tour dates with Heartless Bastards and My Jerusalem. You can check those dates here.
But before she leaves, she’s playing a record release show at Austin’s Scottish Rite Temple on Thursday, October 4th, which promises to be a gas. Austinites, you can RSVP on FB here.
