Monsters of Folk - In The Right Place
Monsters of Folk was born out of five men who started just jamming with each other on stage and backstage while with their respective bands. Monsters of Folk consists of Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis from Bright Eyes, Jim James from My Morning Jacket, M. Ward Of She & Him And solo work, And Will Johnson from Centro-matic. With the coming together of these respective talented men bloomed something amazing. Their folk influenced songs have a way of looking directly into your soul and speaking to you. Sometimes in a positive light, and other times in a less than bright light. They simply speak words from their heart about how life can sometimes be less than amazing, but in a way that justifies lyrical genius. These are just some of the reasons why Monsters if Folk deserves to be highlighted here. Monsters of Folk entire first album is worth listening to. So go on and listen! I don't think you'll regret it.
