New Monsters of Folk, "Say Please"
As some may or may not be aware, the likes of Conor Oberst (2009's "Fail of the Year" to this point, but otherwise good guy), M. Ward, Jim James (aka Yim James) and Mike Mogis are teaming up for a collaboration, because everybody does that nowadays. Monsters of Folk features songs headed up by each member, and overall, looks to be a pretty good time if you're into folk, indie-folk or any of the subgenres therein. Though the album isn't out for a couple months, they've decided to release to us, the adoring (?) fans, an mp3 which we can use to generate buzz. All you have to do is answer a ridiculous riddle that could be solved by any seven year-old (sorry kindergarteners, you're SOL). So go check out the track, "Say Please" over at their website. And be sure to grab Monsters of Folk, which is out September 22nd via Shangri-La Music.
