Megafaun's Joe Westerlund is releasing ... something ...
Eau Claire native Joe Westerlund – known around these parts for his time in DeYarmond Edison and more recently in Megafaun – has played his fair share of eclectic music, but this might take the cake.
The new album by moniker Grandma Sparrow and His Piddletractor Orchestra comes out tomorrow on Spacebomb records. The album plays with the idea of collage in a collection of weird, freak folk. Spacebomb describes the album as a "children's song-cycle for adults" and Village Voice called it some "trippy, deep sh**."
That it is.
But the songs have a certain playfulness under the bizarre that feed into what seems will be a pretty unique and fun record. Check out the equally, um, unique teaser video and some tracks over at Spacebomb.
