"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 pianos, sumptuous multi-part harmonies or bracing, string-scraping dissonance…

The unique mixture of songcraft and improvisational spirit Megafaun have grown to command. While very much at ease with several strains of American folk music, they're masterfully reinventing tradition by infusing it with radically alien elements.

Crammed Is pleased to offer three recordings from this remarkable group: Gather, Form & Fly, Heretofore, and the latest self titled release, Megafaun.
