LIVE: Shana Falana @ the Low Beat, 4/2/15

After zipping up the Thruway from their Kingston hometown, guitarist-vocalist Shana Falana and drummer Mike Amari landed at the Low Beat in Albany to kick off their coast-to-coast tour and celebrate the release of their sparkling new collaborative album, Set Your Lightning Fire Free. And not surprisingly, the new partnership put considerably more muscle into Falana’s always mesmerizing dream-pop sound, at once tribal and droning.
Rounding out the evening’s musical festivities were the electronic/ambient duo Moon Magick and the bristling psychedelia of Eternal Crimes (featuring members of Severe Severe, the Black Ships and Sun Burdens).
