New! Monsters Of Folk (Conor Oberst + Jim James Supergroup) – "Say Please"

Most of the time, supergroups are a let down. I tried to work this out mathematically, but it doesn’t make sense. It seems natural that if you like Artist A and you like Artist B, that you will also like Artist A + Artist B. If Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Pac, Biggie, and Kurt Cobain got together for an album, I bet it wouldn’t even get posted at P&P.

Whatever. This is a case of the rareness. A supergroup that actually sounds good! Monsters Of Folk is Conor Oberst & Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes) and Jim James (My Morning Jacket) & M. Ward (She & Him). Maybe the fact that I’ve been recently disappointed by both Conor Oberst and Jim James makes this collaboration even more surprisingly delicious. I don’t know who does the song writing, or if they all work together on this, but you can definitely hear some Bright Eyes elements and some MMJ influence. Good shit. Thanks for giving musicians everywhere the strength to keep trying to make sense of this madness that is the supergroup conundrum.
