MP3 of the Day: Megafaun

Something about the band name Megafaun made me think this was some kinda jam band. And in some ways, it was. But this Raleigh, N.C. trio is less overblown guitar wankery and more back porch improvisation, mixing earthy harmonies and gritty guitar work with banjo picking and stomped out percussion. There's something naturally compelling about the music these dudes make, and something that mixes well with the folksy/rocky music made around here by bands like Vetiver. The music on Megafaun's MySpace travels through time between the days of The Band and Dylan and contemporaries like The Avett Brothers. It's great stuff, and if you're around over the upcoming holiday weekend, you should check out Megafaun at 12 Galaxies on Thursday, July 3. First, you can check out one of their great tunes, "Lazy Suicide," here. -- Jennifer Maerz
