Megafaun at Bowery Ballroom in 2011 (more by Ryan Barkan)
Megafaun

Megafaun are heading out on an extensive international tour this year, starting with a European run in February and then coming to the US in March and April. The tour hits NYC on March 17 at Highline Ballroom with support from William Tyler, who also opens a few of the other US dates. Tickets go on sale Friday (1/13) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Megafaun's Phil Cook is one of the guests, along with Justin Vernon and Norah Jones on Kathleen Edwards' Vernon-produced full length, Voyageur, which comes out this Tuesday (1/17). You can stream the entire album on NPR.

Phil and his brother/bandmate Brad Cook were in a pre-Megafaun band together called Amateur Love. Their album, It's All Aquatic, is being reissued on Justin Vernon's new label, Chigliak Records, which is an imprint of Jagjaguwar. According to a post on the label's website, which has since been removed, Chigliak will release albums that were "never commercially released" or "locally released and never put on vinyl," in addition to new recordings. So far the label is set to release the Amateur Love album, and albums by Sarah Siskind and 12 Rods. Check out an Amateur Love video below.

The Kathleen Edwards album is fantastic btw.

It'll be interesting to see if they release the DeYarmond Edison material with Justin, the Cook brothers, and a few other people.

4:42 - this is the album where she fulfills the early promise- it is solid all the way through.

I miss Kathleen's storytelling songs. She writes some amazing crime stories, but this album is just great.

Megafaun is good but that name is so bad it's hard for me to want to listen to them.
