    Freak-folk is one way to describe Megafaun. It'll probably feel even more appropriate after getting a first listen and free download of a song off their self-titled, Megafaun, arriving September 20.

    The opening drum beat to "These Words" pounds away over some very fortunate frog's debut appearance (vaguely reminiscent of the opening to this). But the creative recording technique doesn't stop at using frogs as instruments; if you listen closely, you can actually hear cicadas being looped and put into the beat. Synthesizers kick in, intermittently parodying the critters, and drawing a stark parallel between nature and noise. Megafaun definitely got a bit experimental with sound in this track, but so far, the conclusion seems to be that it's paying off. Listen and download "These Words" with the widget below.
