Megafaun, Mount Moriah, Great White Jenkins 

When: Fri., May 7, 8:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $10

To borrow a word from Megafaun's forthcoming mini-LP, Heretofore, comprovisation is a perfect descriptor of the Triangle trio's approach. The three-piece thrives on the give-and-take interaction between studio composition and live improvisation, to the point that the two are often indistinguishable. The result is a mess of refined roots strained through postmodern experimentation. Last year's acclaimed Gather, Form and Fly featured top-notch songwriting given innovative arrangements. Setting the mood are Mount Moriah's rustic shuffles, which conjure foggy Appalachian peaks, and the Muscle Shoals feel of The Great White Jenkins' soulful R&B revival. —Spencer Griffith
