Megafaun: 'Find Your Mark'

megafaun300

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.
