Monsters of Folk - Words and Music - 2009

Monsters of Folk are a super group, but it's not because they're monsters. It's because they're a band that consists of Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes, M. Ward from She and Him, Jim James from My Morning Jacket, and Saddle Creek Records' Mike Mogis.
Conor, Jim and M. Ward joined me to discuss their tour, how M. Ward found Conor's basement, and how this project and the self-titled album was a nice respite from their usual highly successful projects.
