How a musician makes the transition from indie rock to big-band gypsy jazz is anyone’s guess, let alone being able to pull it off successfully.  But that’s exactly what Noah Lit, the namesake of Los Angeles’ Noah and the MegaFauna, did.  Rising from the ashes of his previous band, Oliver Future, Lit enlisted friends and family (brothers Joshua and Gabriel are part of the gang) to work on and produce their great 2011 debut, ‘Anthems for a Stateless Nation‘.  And on their return to New York for this performance, the group played all of its tracks with its intricately appealing rhythms, notes and layers.  Far more than a straight run-through of the album, this crew absolutely killed it live with an energy and tautness that comes with having a talented group of musicians that really enjoy what they’re playing, for an audience that really appreciates it.  Additionally, we had the treat of a new song which we hope will appear on the band’s forthcoming record, ‘Psychopomps and Circumstance‘.

On this night, we were set up just about dead-center in the terrific sounding Joe’s Pub.  Our location was ideal and the results are quite excellent.  We hope you like what you hear as much as we did.  Enjoy!

Special thanks to Noah and the MegaFauna and Joe Rogers at Silence Breaks for making this recording possible, and to the staff at Joe’s Pub for their courtesy and cooperation.

Noah and the MegaFauna will soon be returning to the NYC area and performing on July 2nd at Mercury Lounge with Silence Breaks labelmate Kelli Scarr
