This Spring, we were fortunate to catch Megafaun four times in a span of less than three weeks. The final performance was their opening set for Sharon Van Etten at Music Hall in April. The set featured several new numbers, and now four months down the road the band is poised to release their new album (self-titled) on Hometapes Records on September 20, 2011. The band will also launch tours in September through Europe and the US. The local dates are a pair of nights at Mercury Lounge, on Saturday September 24 and Sunday September 25. We expect to capture at least one of the Mercury dates.

I recorded this set with the Neumann microphones on a stand in the upfront of the right side of the balcony, fifteen feet from the stage. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
