MegafaunaLarger Than Human
Megafauna's debut sits at the intersection of 1970s rock and 1990s noise, idling in the land of ice and snow and burnt rubber. Larger Than Human seats a wild ride of whiplash tempo changes and dizzying rhythms by the local trio, from the menacing thump of opener "Hug From a Robot" through shred-a-delic closer "Sign Says." In between, the more ethereal "Silver Lining" and "Speck" offer a change of scenery, but singer/guitarist Dani Neff never lets up on the throttle. For all the rhythmic cliffs and axe-grinding, her vocals don't match – they're more like smoke in the air – so she lets her solos melt faces instead, plus drummer Cameron Page and bassist Will Krause are the perfect net for Neff's guitar acrobatics. Larger Than Human's got lots of culs-de-sac and one-way streets, but it's best at high speeds.
