"Megafaun don't just catalog American musical languages, they breed them", writes Pitchfork in a preview of the band's album "Gather, Form & Fly".

The band was built by brothers Brad and Phil Cook and fellow Eau Claire, Wisconsin native Joe Westerlund from the ashes of DeYarmond Edison, the group they had formed with longtime friend Justin "Bon Iver" Vernon.

Megafaun are part of that rare breed of young artists driven by an unquenchable thirst for a wide range of sounds and styles. Pick a song at random, and don’t be surprised to hear delicate Appalachian banjo figures, tumbling Steve Reich ...


New MEGAFAUN Mini-Album on the way

After such an exciting year (including the release of their acclaimed Gather, Form and Fly album, several tours in the US, two very successful first forays into Europe, and a participation in psych-soul supergroup Gayngs), Megafaun have come good again with a new mini-album! Entitled "Heretofore", this beautiful six-track offering will be released in September (by Crammed in Europe and Hometapes in the US).

"Heretofore" serves as an appetiser for the next full album by the North Carolina trio, which will be recorded later this year... not that this mini-album should be taken in any way lightly - in an interview with  Independent Weekly, Megafaun described the material as "the best hooks and lyrics that we've done ... but it also has the most far-reaching stuff we've ever put on a record".

A single from "Heretofore" will be released in advance of the band's summer festival tour, details of which you'll find here. Watch this space for more info soon!
