Monsters of Folk “Say Please”


Indie rock supergroup Monsters of Folk, which consists of Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes, his co-conspirator/producer Mike Mogis, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James aka ‘Yim Yames,’ and the very accomplished M. Ward – most recently of She & Him with Zooey Deschanel, release the teaser single to their upcoming debut album, also titled Monsters of Folk. The song is called “Say Please” and it’s fun, not nearly as good as what this grouping is capable of, but worth checking out nonetheless.
