What an honor to return to the WNYC studio in New York to tape another session of Soundcheck. We had a killer NYC band and Kat Edmonson came by to sing. Such a treat. LISTEN HERE
Noah and the MegaFauna is the brain child of the child brain of Noah Lit. The debut album, Anthems For A Stateless Nation was an attempt to combine a love of Django Reinhardt style Jazz Manouche with a more modern song writers aesthetic.The New Album, The Pale Blue Dot, shows the band flexing their orchestral rock muscles. The slinky jazz aesthetic is coupled with a healthy does of strings, percussion and lyricism evoking genre benders like Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Elvis Costello.
“An eccentric ensemble that sounds like a jazz-infused version of Devotchka. Influenced by 'gypsy jazz' pioneer Django Reinhardt, the Los Angeles-based band features sharp blaring horns, big swinging rhythm guitar, frontman Noah Lits chilling, pained vocals, and an overall eerie and brooding, yet carnival-esque vibe.”
