Sometimes we’re too generous with the dream-pop label, attaching it to any artist whose music is at once enjoyable and esoteric. Often, so-called dream-pop acts fall short on the “pop,” offering up music that takes aim at pop sensibilities, but isn’t easy enough to digest. Shana Falana is a New York artist who, while delving into ambient oddness and sharp, experimental electro-rock, truly delivers the goods in fun-pop packaging. On her latest and greatest record, Set Your Lightning Fire Free, Falana worked with percussionist Mike Amari to make her sound even more propulsive, even more pop.
