Jana Hunter

“Valkyries” by Jana Hunter, from There’s No Home (Gnomonsong):

Houston songstress Jana Hunter is a signee to Devendra Banhart’s Gnomonsong label, but she is neither freaky nor folkie. She sings and strums with a quietude that shadows the shiny, happy lurch of traditional folk musicianship. By weaving piano, violin, lap steel and synthesizer into each song, Hunter adds body to her melancholy, which culminates in sometimes dreamy, sometimes dreary songs that cloud coherent messages or emotions.
