It’s many things, coming at you from different directions. Maybe Austin-based band Megafauna is given all the descriptions because of this killer musicianship that owns it. All insanely brilliant live performances aside, it’s never been more apparent than on their sixth full-length release Olympica. This thing is tight yet flies across the board. To hell with any restrictive construct; from every groove to every surge, time signatures throwing you for a loop, you pick up on the coolest pop, sun-drenched psych, undeniable prog power. But the bottom line? Rock. Straight up rock, as vocalist/guitarist Dani Neff delivers the wicked shreds and lyrical prowess that’s always given the band an extra edge.
Don’t sleep on this one. Megafauna’s album release party is tonight, Saturday May 6, at Sagebrush, 5500 S. Congress. The line-up includes Holy Death Trio and The Dead Coats. DJ Dead Flowers starts out the night at 8 p.m.
