Megafaun mixes minimalist folk with modernist rock experimentations. The result is an unusual and surprising mix of songs for the trio from Durham, NC. At times they sound like a drunken group singing bar songs. Other times they lean more toward beautiful, lo-fi folk. Megafaun's debut CD is Bury the Square.

"Find Your Mark," the opening cut, begins with an Appalachian-like hymned verse before taking on more delicate, folksy rhythms. Like a number of tracks on the album, the song eventually morphs into more explosive folk-flavored rock with synths and samples of found sounds.

Currently signed to Table of The Elements label, Megafaun is heading out for a tour that mainly consists of dates in the Northeast in addition to four dates at SXSW 2008.
