DOWNLOAD: Monsters of Folk - Say Please (MP3)

Monsters of Folk

Monsters of Folk (Mike Mogis, Conor Oberst, M. Ward, and Yim Yames...or Jim James as most know him) will be heading out on tours of North America and Europe this fall. That tour comes to NYC for two nights in November. One will be November 6th at the United Palace (which recently hosted Sonic Youth). The second will November 8th at the Beacon Theater. Tickets for the NYC shows (and all shows) go on general sale Friday, July 31st, and "an exclusive pre-sale for Monsters of Folk fans begins on Tuesday, July 28th".

For the tour...

The four members will be switching instruments and trading roles throughout each show, maintaining the freewheeling and highly collaborative spirit of their work together thus far.

On this inaugural tour, Monsters of Folk is partnering with Air Traffic Control, a resource for musicians' philanthropic and social change work, to donate monies raised from ticket sales. The band will be donating $1 from every ticket sold on the tour to local non-profits.

The group's self-titled debut will be out September 22nd on Shangri-La Music. Check out the second track from that above, as well as the album track list, below.

M. Ward plays his own show at Central Park Summerstage on August 1st. All MoF tour dates and the album track list, below...

OK

LOVE Jim James, but M Ward & Conor... ugh
someone give me a place to start???????


I kinda liked Conor's new stuff, but Bright Eyes makes me want to punch an Emo, and I have never heard a song by M Ward I like, and DO NOT get me started on Zoey or whatever the F that was!
Double Ugh!!!

That is not Alex from the forms. No

Music for middle age people who used to actually listen to music. This is going to be boring.

I'm surprised Jeff Tweedy isn't involved.

"That is not Alex from the forms. No"

nice name drop.

these shows will be great. it'd be cool if they didn't play m.o.f. material exclusively but i don't that happening

I agree, I find Jim James/M Ward duo to be a snooze, so this will likely be even worse.

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2009 1:30 PM

see that happening*

"That is not Alex from the forms. No"

I also agree. That is not Alex Tween from Brooklyn band The Forms.

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2009 1:32 PM

I'd rather see The Forms...

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2009 1:40 PM

I'd like to see an Alex Tween / Wes Verhoeve / Conrad Doucette supergroup open this tour. They would be known as Monsters of Fuck.

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2009 1:42 PM

i hope the rest of the record is better than "say please". very mediocre, filler-track song sounding. they need to be much much more adventurous than this or it will indeed me snoozefest 09

i'd rather see namedrop one namedrop two namedrop three with namedrop four on drums

Dude, Mothra shreds!! Fuck yes.

This would be a band to see if Conor wasn't in it.

Well, I'm excited!

Monsters of Meh.

I assume all of those who throw around "white people music" as an insult are themselves white people ... why all the self-loathing? assuming such a thing actually exists, what's wrong with "white people music?"

Posted by eli | July 23, 2009 2:48 PM

is there even a song out yet? are they just banking on fans of their other material coming out to those venues? I guess that works

Looks boring

Sounds like the most boring show ever.

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2009 4:41 PM

Holy christ...this will be boring. I almost fell asleep reading the band name. Girls with dumb eyeglasses and book clubs are stoked!

I'd rather lick my own ballsack... again.

Posted by Venkman | July 23, 2009 10:49 PM

I'm sure it'll be good, per se, but I think it'll be a little old for me. I'll probably go see them anyway for the sole purpose of checking out Conor Oberst's ass when he turns around, since he's still hot as fuck.

why waste time bashing this? get a life. go listen to something you do like and leave us alone. this will be a great very mellow show!

Posted by my corn | July 24, 2009 4:04 PM

Why do you bother making such negative comments? I am so excited for this show, these 4 guys are genius. Seriously, if you don't like them why do you waste your energy?

Posted by Anonymous | July 27, 2009 1:02 PM

This album made me feel generally happy. I just wish you guys would come closer to Memphis. Ah well.

Posted by Anonymous | October 18, 2009 7:28 PM

I can't wait for this show! Conor and M.Ward are two of my favorite artists. And honestly the negative comments are a waste because these four are brilliant. !

Posted by Anonymous | November 5, 2009 5:38 PM
