Old mates of Bon Iver's looking good on their third

Megafaun: borrowing from The Byrds with delicious panache

Here's the thing. Call me a rhinoceros-hided heathen but I find Bon Iver's music a bit of a bore. Then again, Justin Vernon - Bon Iver - used to be in this group called DeYarmond Edison somewhere in Wisconsin. They split in 2006 but where he went off on an emotional quest into his soul that struck a chord with so many, the other three members, Joe Westerlund and Philip and Bradley Cook - Megafaun - explored more curious sonic pastures, glubbing deep into earthy country music while fiddling about with computers. I did like that.
