Our guinea pigs are Megafaun, who play Iota on June 8. Formerly of DeYarmond Edison (with indie-stud Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver), and co-currently of Gayngs (which, like Megafaun, has been featured on here before), the trio hails from Wisconsin by way of North Carolina. Their brand of bluegrass brings banjo and distortion together, keeping it current and country all at the same time.
They are by far my favorite "new" band, and not just because they gave us the time of day (but how RAD!). Thanks to Phil Cook--
