"Two lipsmackingly sweet songs." - TIME OUT NY


“Can I call you back? I can’t talk to you right now. I’m rehearsing with you on one of your videos. ”

Two Songs for Sadie is part response song, part long distance game of musical telephone between Dana Falconberry, who lives in Austin, and Matt Bauer who lives in Brooklyn.

After rehearsing with a video of Dana’s Sadie in order to accompany her on banjo, Matt wrote Waiting For Your Shadow drawing on the images in Dana’s song.

“I almost didn’t send it to her because we didn’t know each other well at the time and I thought she might think I was a weirdo.”

“I didn’t think he was a weirdo,” says Dana. Instead, she thought up a song built on the characters in Waiting For Your Shadow called Oh, Matthew.

When Dana came to New York on tour, they rehearsed the songs and tried them out at a few shows. Toward the end of her trip, in the moments between the theme from the Mr. Softee ice cream truck coming through the window and the upstairs neighbors blasting Guns ‘n Roses, they recorded at Matt’s apartment in Greenpoint.

Track Name: Oh, Matthew!
Oh, how the morning dove does sing so sweet
And how so softly
You cross legged underneath a tree
Looking at me

Oh, Matthew, yes I do remember you

Oh, run me through the tall yellow switch grass
Hold my hand tightly
And show me where the Momma bird will nest
One day come spring

Oh, Matthew, yes I do remember you

The summer wind will take
It is for these the dove does sing
But children running wildly through fields
Will never know such things

Oh, Matthew, yes I do remember you
Track Name: Waiting For Your Shadow to Fall
Oh, hunt me down in the tall grass
Slay me with your golden dark
A giant moth, his wings a silver green
You rubbed them around your eyes

I’ve been waiting for your shadow to fall on me

Oh, remember how we watched the bats dip and get their fill
We let the horses run
Black in the blue, they bowed to our touch
And you were my darkened sun

I’ve been waiting for your shadow to fall on me

Block out the world
Nothing but the sound of the air that runs before the storm
Oh, don’t speak. Just tell me with your eyes
What it is you’re fighting for

I’ve been waiting for your shadow to fall on me
