Why do we like this?
Monsters of Folk is an indie/folk supergroup consisting of Conor Oberst (of Bright Eyes and Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band), Mike Mogis (also of Bright Eyes), Jim James (of My Morning Jacket) and M. Ward (of She & Him as well as a succesful solo musician). Oberst, James and Ward all share vocal and guitar duties with Mogis playing drums. The Monsters of Folk toured as Bright Eyes, with Jim James and M. Ward, and developed the name Monsters of Folk while on tour.

After one listen to "Dear God (sincerely M.O.F.)", it's clear that this track is definitely in the key of My Morning Jacket.Aaside from the obvious fact that Jim James provides most of the vocals, there are clear signs of my morning jacket all over this one. The chord changes are classic MMJ, and the overall dreamy feel of the song adds to it. The exciting part About this album is the stark contrast between this song and the M.Ward led "Say Please" and "The Right Place", which, based on the 10 second youtube teaser, sounds like it will definitely be highlighting conor oberst. is this the first time musicians have posted 10-15 second teasers of upcoming songs on YouTube (just search for Monsters of Folk)? Either way, its definitely an interesting marketing strategy and one that seems to be working in this case. The cool part about their tour is they'll be playing Monsters of Folk tunes, plus songs by all of their own respective "solo" acts. But im pretty sure they arent making a stop in Detroit, because nobody makes stops in Detroit anymore. - Dailybeatz.com
