MEGAFAUN/SHARON VAN ETTEN/STAR DWELLER
Gather, Form & Fly is a monument to a band that hundreds have experienced on stages, under trees, in galleries, on ÂÂ¬ÂÂoors, in headphones, and through radios-with-the-windows-down over the past three years. All the hints theyve given us from songs Stereogum described as mournful, slow-blooming banjo-and-white-noise-laced epics to tours with The Rosebuds, Arnold Dreyblatt, and Akron/Family have culminated in a record that is an ode to death, love, musical history (from blues to musique-concrte), community, tradition, and experimentation. In all, its an ode to the listener.
Based in Durham, North Carolina, Megafaun was built by brothers Brad and Phil Cook and fellow Eau Claire, Wisconsin native Joe Westerlund. The trio, plus longtime friend Justin Vernon (a.k.a. Bon Iver), made the cross country move together from WI to NC as the band DeYarmond Edison, ultimately splitting in 2006. Megafaun was born from those ashes and proceeded to record the remarkable album Bury the Square in 2007. They found a home on the road, collaborating with friends (they also joined Akron/Family and Dreyblatt as backing band) and developing an American musical language that is exquisitely translated by 2009s Gather, Form & Fly.
