“Charlevoix,” “Tahquemenon,” “Muskegon,” “Leelanau.” The song titles of orchestral pop songstress Dana Falconberry’s forthcoming record, Leelanau, are as exquisite and unpronounceable as the music itself. For her new record, Falconberry not only expanded her sonic palette to include a six-piece orchestra; she made illustrations for her bandmates to study while they recorded their instrumentals. Though Falconberry’s home state of Michigan leaves a Great Lake-sized footprint all over Leelanau, her uniquely pitched voice and evocative string arrangements seem to draw on influences across the map, from Joanna Newsom to Sufjan Stevens (there are only so many Michigans to sing about).
