Of all the recent “supergroups” to have formed in recent months, Monsters of Folk is easily the biggest… and as we learned today, most likely to live up to the hype.
On September 22nd, Conor Oberst, M. Ward, Jim “Yim” James “Yames”, and Mike Mogis will finally put their five-year collaboration to record when they unveil Monsters of Folk. Today, the group gave its first official taste of what is to come with the release of a song entitled “Say Please”.
As you’ll hear, Oberst and Ward handle most of the vocals with James dishing an epic guitar solo about a minute in. The result is a song that combines the elements of Ward and Oberst’s most recent work, aka some good ol’ folk, with a twist of My Morning Jacket. In other words, it’s exactly what would imagine they’d hear with such a collaboration — and who could complain about that?
