This Durham, N.C.-based twangcore alt-country outfit puts its own spin on Americana with a harmonica that fights the soul and jazzy moments that keep us guessing. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is an apt comparison, thanks to a rustic and contemplative approach, served with haphazard lyrics that feel hyper-real. To some, they’ll forever be a footnote in the Bon Iver narrative — drummer Joe Westerlund and brothers Brad Cook and Phil Cook were once co-conspirators with Vernon in a band called DeYarmond Edison, in which Vernon developed his noble voice as a musician. But Megafaun on its own is just as artful and forward-thinking in its psych-folk framework — check out their self-titled 2011 release for proof.
