Shana Falana may be gearing up to release her solo debut, but the Kingston-based psych goddess is hardly new to the game. Before she packed up and moved upstate, Falana was cutting her teeth in Brooklyn and on tour, constantly working on volumes of material that clutched at the hem of various genres and wavelengths. Everything from chanting with an Eastern European lilt (she sang in a Bulgarian women's choir for a bit) to increasingly undeniable wails to heady drum fills to distortion so fuzzy it puts Jim Henson's whole output to shame make an appearance on Set Your Lightning Fire Free, out April 7 on Team Love Records, and it's a strong new start for the incendiary indie talent.

Take "Go," for example: While the latest track to be released from Set Your Lightning Fire Free hits the ear as a kaleidoscopic, trippy gem that shines as brilliantly in 2015 as it would've in a Berkeley drug den during the Summer of Love, there's so much going on from start to finish that you can't help but lose yourself in Falana's crowing or Mike Amari's pugilistic way with the drum kit.

Listen to "Go" below, and be sure to pick up Set Your Lightning Fire Free on April 7.

Shana Falana are currently touring in support of Set Your Lightning Fire Free and play Shea Stadium on April 4. For ticket info, click here.
