Megafaun – “Volunteers” mp3
Walking away from rock’s current trend of polished early-seventies adult-pop, Megafaun brings a folk-rock with more country roots. “Volunteers,” a lazy twang guitar and banjo orgy, sounds rather like Lynyrd Skynyrd crashing a Grateful Dead house party. For a more contemporary reference, think a more southern fried version of The Mother Hips. This is a lovely song, seething with the warmth, longing and whiskey that grow like wildflowers in the American South.
