Megafauna EP Release Thursday Night at The ND
Each time you see Megafauna frontwoman and guitarist Dani Neff perform, you’ll immediately be struck by two elements: Grace and power.
On the one hand, there are the details and subtleties that go into each Megafauna track – an intricate arrangement of textures, varying tempos, shoegaze and psych layers, and the intense, seductive power of Neff’s ethereal voice.
On the other hand, there’s the kind of sweltering rock-goddess brutality that is known for face-melting – again, if I may reiterate, an essential element of any rock show worth a damn. Everything is fair game: Classic rock, garage rock, punk, and metal, and the bone-rattling turbulence of Neff’s monster guitar riffs. From their first full-length release Larger Than Human (2010) to their new EP Love Project, Megafauna presents a balance of sounds that redefines whatever “indie-rock” was supposed to mean.
Megafauna is celebrating the release of their new EP with a release show tomorrow night at The ND, located at 5th and Brushy. This is going to be a pretty impressive show with psych/prog rock trio The Boxing Lesson headlining, and the youngest rockers on the block, Residual Kid, starting the show. Doors open at 10 p.m.
I’ll give my usual safety tip: Don’t leave the earplugs at home. Recommended.
