From the little I heard from Dana Falconberry’s new record Oh Skies Of Grey I feared that perhaps she’d abandoned the sound and the intimate nature of her previous songs found on the her debut ep (here). But while there’s more layers to be found on this new record I suspect this is the sound Dana heard in her head all along. Only this time she’s got the backing of the excellent, but I’m sure perennially underfunded label, 00.02.59 Records. The presence of even a small budget has allowed her to expand her sonic pallet by adding glorious backing vocals, unusual percussion and a more loungy-folk sound that combines element of folk, jazz and blues.
“Do You” is an understated tour de force (if that’s even possible) that highlights her retro vocals and clever songwriting. Look, I’m biased `cause I love Dana Falconberry but you should really check this one out. Buy it here through her label.
Plus “Blue Umbrella”
