Monsters of Folk unleashed from the depths

We first wrote about Monsters of Folk, the mysterious folk supergroup featuring Conor Oberst, Jim James Yim Yames of My Morning Jacket, singer-songwriter M. Ward and Saddle Creek producer Mike Mogis, while fawning over Yames’s Harrison tribute EP last week.

Now, “Say Please,” the first track off their album, is available for download on All you have to do to get it is type in the ol’ magic word. With guitars ranging from jangle to fuzz and excellent harmonies, the song is a nice taste of what we can expect from the album, out September 22nd. The release will be followed with U.S. and European tour dates (via Brooklyn Vegan)
