Native to the great state of Michigan, Dana Falconberry now makes her home in Austin, Texas, where she recorded these four folk-inflected tracks. Predicting a full-length that will follow later this year Though I Didn’t Call It Came overflows with thoughtful lyrics, equally thoughtful vocal layers, and an undeniable charm. As lovely as the opening “Petoskey Stone” proves, it’s the gentle backward glance of “Possum Song”, a track that is as much 2012 as it is 1942, the song sliver “Muskegon” and the closing “Maple Leaf Red” that show Falconberry at her best. She’s not really a newcomer, with records that date back to 2006, but with this material she seems poised to find a wider and welcoming audience.
