Boomkat Product Review:
New on Table of the Elements offshoot Radium comes North Carolina's Megafaun, a band whose name evokes the kind of enhanced backwoods folk they dish out. In a similar fashion to fellow mavericks Akron/Family, Megafaun fuse together an eccentric, intelligently spun bluegrass-influenced sound, approached with a psychedelia-prone mindset and loose, jammed-out instrumentation. The beautifully frenetic post-folk of 'Find Your Mark' is lit up by sophisticated group vocal arrangements and soaring instrumental passages, starting the album off on a real high note, only for 'Tired And Troubled' to take the tone into an obscure electroacoustic interlude sequence. All ths leads into harmonious banjo passages ushering in 'Where We Belong' which spends its first half growing prettier and prettier, augmenting itself with strings and wafts of field recordings before the electronics kick in and set the piece ablaze in a frenzied noise blowout. Thereafter lulling wafts of piano and viola punctuate a dismantled, drifting soundscape of debris and digital effects. It's a brilliant eleven minutes, and most certainly not something you'd encounter everyday. Although the remaining tracks are rather more traditional in their approach to folksy, bluegrass templates, the far-flung experimentation of this epic centrepiece is something that sets Megafaun apart from the droves of kooky wannabes that operate in this sort of domain.
