Album Review
Reviewed 2013-09-21 
Folk meets noise meets groovy rhythms. Appalachia-tinged meeting of the minds for the disparate artists; Megafaun closer to Vetiver banjo folk pop territory, Dreyblatt closer to Berlin warehouse intellectual experimental. (mostly) Instrumental, trippy, texture-heavy, hypnotic jams with ramshackle percussion. Amazing, interesting, buoyant stuff and nothing too heavy or abrasive. RIYL: Gunn-Truscinski Duo, Young God Records, Tortoise, This Heat, Akron/Family.

1. Crawlingly slow tempo, sparse, simple beat against ringing feedback and circular melody. (5:15)
*2. Driving march, hypnotic guitars and ringing repetitions, interesting microtonal stringed variations. (8:27)
*3. Droning stringed bliss, cut-and-pasted banjo and airy vocals. Sounds like Andrew Weathers. (8:47)
4. Another cycling groove, more drones and guitar swiping, more brooding. (10:54)
