DOWNLOAD: Megafaun - "These Words" (MP3)

Megafaun at Bowery Ballroom in March (more by Ryan Barkan)

Megafaun are releasing their self titled LP on September 20 via Hometapes. Grab the single "These Words" above and watch the album teaser video below.

"Process, songcraft, and toss-and-turn emotion collided when Megafaun's Joe Westerlund looped together field recordings from his travels in Bali and rural North Carolina: a round-robin of gamelan, ambient sounds, frogs, and cicadas underpin a hauntingly indelible piano melody and a hypnotic beat. Then there are the voices.

This song stopped us dead in our tracks, encapsulating the Megafaun we know and the Megafaun we've yet to hear. In between? Well, that's Megafaun, out September 20, 2011." [Hometapes]

Megafaun will go on a short European tour at the end of the summer before returning to the US and playing NYC on September 24 and 25 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for both NYC shows go on sale Friday (7/15) at noon with an AmEx pre-sale starting Wednesday (7/13) at noon. No other US dates announed yet.
