Dana Falconberry partners with Jim Eno (of Spoon) for her newest release: Public Hi-Fi Sessions 02 out on Record Store Day. Hear "Palmless" now!

Austin's Dana Falconberry collaborates with Jim Eno (of Spoon) for a very special Record Store Day release!

Public Hi-Fi Sessions 02 features two collaborative tracks recorded in Eno's Austin based studio between sessions working on Falconberry's follow up to her highly-acclaimed album, Leelanau.

Hear the lead single, "Palmless," that recently debuted on Pitchforkvia Soundcloud:

The second release for Public Hi-Fi's Sessions Series features a single from Austin-based artist, Dana Falconberry. Between full-band sessions at Public Hi-Fi for Falconberry's forthcoming LP, she and Jim Eno spent a few days in December collaborating with different techniques and sounds for a few extra songs. This experiment birthed "Palmless" and "Seven Hills," two ethereal soundscapes that create a bed of synthesized tones and rhythms to underpin Falconberry's gently persuasive vocal delivery. "Palmless" was inspired by the first flight of two baby great blue heron birds, and "Seven Hills" is a contemplative piece about the woes of leaving magnificently inspiring places while on tour. Eno produced, engineered and mixed both tracks and also provided most of the arrangements and drum sequences. The vinyl release's custom packaging includes silk-screened artwork for the cover, and each 12” comes with a high quality digital download card. 

"Working with Jim on these songs was a really enlightening experience. We delved into a lot of new elements in my music that I've never explored before. We had a great time experimenting in the studio, and the process has definitely informed my writing." Dana Falconberry

Press for Dana Falconberry's highly acclaimed sophomore album, Leelanau
"Her music is gentle yet intricate: a rusticated chamber music using banjo, cello, and staggered, contrapuntal vocal harmonies with the other women in her band, in songs full of wordless interludes that unfurled a skein of possibilities." New York Times

"Beautiful!" NPR's All Songs Considered

"On the right day, with the right dreamy light, this’ll hit straight to the heart." The FADER

"I love her and her band so much. So many emotions were felt." VICE

"With backing vocalists Gina Dvorak and Karla Manzur helping evaporate Falconberry’s ornate ballads into a cappella curlicues, the audience fell silent enough to hear the afternoon breeze bending tree branches overhead." Washington Post

"...there's something to be said for hearing a voice for the first time and becoming a instant fan. Mixing the sweet nostalgia of folk music with an unexpected dash of soul, Falconberry's music takes you on a journey, like a good book on a rainy day." NYLON

"Whether you call it pop folk, audio poetry, or chamber pop, Dana Falconberry’s first full-length with Antenna Farm Records is an insidious stunner." Foxy Digitalis

"Dana Falconberry is among Austin’s more exciting and promising talents, painting rich lyrical pictures against equally evocative music." Austin American-Statesman

"'I keep my curtains mostly closed,' Falconberry sighs, but you'll want your eyes — and ears — to stay open all the way to the playful ending." SPIN on their premier of the music video for "Lake Charlevoix"
