Monsters of Folk: Free MP3

"SUPER GROUP" OFFERS UP FIRST TASTE OF STUDIO COLLABORATION

Folk Monsters
Monsters of Folk – comprised of Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, My Morning Jacket's Jim James and M. Ward – will release their self-titled studio debut album on September 22. But, the band is currently offering a free MP3 download of the song "Say Please." Pop over to their website and type in "please" in the password box. It's a sweet little, summery number.

Monsters of Folk began as folklore of sorts, when James, Oberst, Ward and Mogis did their first run of shows together in 2004. Like the musical revue shows that went town to town when rock ‘n’ roll was newly born, the tour was called “An Evening With: Bright Eyes, Jim James and M. Ward,” although amongst friends and crew, it became affectionately known as the “Monsters of Folk Tour.” While entertaining audiences coast to coast with gorgeous acoustic melodies and world-weary tales, the foursome vowed to make their way to a studio at some point after the tour’s completion. While individual albums and other distractions delayed their plans, they kept their promise and when downtime presented itself they convened in the studio multiple times over two years, with Mogis at the helm of their first recorded effort.
