Monsters of Folk out today
You've probably heard enough about it, but the Monsters of Folk (J/Yim J/Yames, M. Ward, Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis) album drops today.
I recommend buying it. It's really freaking good. Surprisingly so, in fact.
I thought with these four together, they could either produce something amazing or something completely disparate and awful. Turns out that Mogis must have been able to reign them in and put together a cohesive album.
Read the review that Dane Stickney and I wrote for The World-Herald.
I'm actually going to be speaking to Mogis this afternoon and I'll be asking about what it was like to work with these three guys. I'll post a few of his comments later and I'll also be writing something for Sunday's paper.
The Monsters will also be playing on Conan tonight, so check that out.
