JJ's Pick: Monsters of Folk

The Super group to End All Super groups – Monsters of Folk

Monsters of Folk is the latest super group to hit the music scene. Made up of Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes, Jim James of My Morning Jacket and solo artist M. Ward , this group really is super.

They’ve been compared to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (whoa – big shoes to fill), but the group’s modern day folk-rock outfit really works. To be honest, I can NOT stand Conor Oberst’s voice, but thankfully his whiny baby attitude is masked by Jim James’ perfectly satisfying crooning.

Sadly, they’re not making it to Texas before their European tour, so we’ll just have to enjoy them via the World Wide Web. Their self-titled debut album, “Monsters of Folk” is on sale now. Check them out at http://monstersoffolk.com/.

TOUR UPDATE: Monsters of Folk is playing at Stubbs on 11/13! Get your tickets here.
