Affectionately labeled “freak-folk” by some, I find it hard to describe the music produced by a band like Megafaun. I suppose the only label one could possibly apply to the North Carolina based band is experimental, and even that does not do justice to their sound.

On “These Words” the band puts their strangeness on full display. While it’s hard to immediately identify any structure to the song, it remains very listenable. The dreamily layered vocals seem to guide you through the track, and ultimately overtake the layers of rhythm Megafaun has thoughtfully arranged throughout the track. It is a gorgeously arranged cacophony of summery noise.
