INFO: Hometapes is pleased to announce that it will be releasingMegafaun’s highly-anticipated second album Gather, Form & Fly on July 21st, 2009.
Gather, Form & Fly is a monument to a band that hundreds have experienced on stages, under trees, in galleries, on ﬂoors, in headphones, and through radios-with-the-windows-down over the past three years. All the hints they’ve 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-concréte), community, tradition, and experimentation. In all, it’s an ode to the listener.
