I'm pretty excited for it to drop, they're all very talented musicians, and anytime Conor and Mike get back together for something its definitely worth hearing.

M. Ward, Conor Oberst & Mike Mogis from Bright Eyes and other Saddle Creek projects, and Jim James from My Morning Jacket, pretty impressive lineup if you ask me.

I have to confess that's like a who's who of indie people that I find annoying. But I'm happy for you that you're excited about it.

I never really caught on to the whole My Morning Jacket craze, but I think M. Ward is fairly enjoyable and Conor Oberst of course is one of my favorite musicans, him and Migos working together is really the only pairing I'm excited for.

I never really liked My Morning Jacket and M. Ward always bored the hell out of me. I am excited for Conor and Mogis though.

Also Monsters of Folk is a pretty misleading name for a band that doesn't have Will Oldham or John Darnielle in it.

I heard The Sandman the Brakeman and Me single on the radio and excitedly followed up on it. I was disappointed to find out that their debut hasn't even dropped yet & no leaks to be found.

Pretty much the reason why I just downloaded their self-titled.
