When Justin Vernon left Raleigh, North Carolina by way of Eau Claire, Wisconsin indie folkers DeYarmond Edison to go on to late-2000s indie wunderkind status as Bon Iver, the remaining members of DE -- Phil Cook, Brad Cook, and Joe Westerlund -- carried on in North Carolina as Megafaun.
With an impossible to pinpoint, laid-back lo-fi sound incorporating Byrds-esque harmonies, elegiac folk picking, and off-kilter instrumentation (think a rougher around the edges Fleet Foxes), Megafaun earned accolades beyond their feted former bandmate. The trio gained solid enough reviews for the sparse debut disc Bury the Square in 2008; however, Megafaun's sophomore release the next year, Gather, Form & Fly, on the Hometapes label, drew raves, with high marks from the Onion AV Club and Pitchfork. The mini-LP Heretofore arrived in 2010, followed by the band's eponymous third full-length outing in 2011. ~ Jason Thurston, Rovi
