The IFC website said the "Say Please" video would be on around 10:26 pm Eastern.  Acutally came on around 10:23 pm.  Interesting video.  Kinda silly, but if it helps get the music out to the random public, that's cool.  

Anyone have a sense as to MoF popularity outside this cult of ours?  I note it was the number one album in college radio, according to Rolling Stone, for a few weeks.  Dropped to number two in the recent issue.  And the wife saw MoF for sale at Target today, "on sale" for $9.99.  
Close enough!

Saw the Monsters last Saturday in The Hague. Very, very good, unforgetable  show  :D. Never seen a band having so much fun on stage (especially Conor was jumping all around the place). Show lasted for 2,5 hours and they played 5 or 6 MMJ songs (Bermudia Highway, At Dawn, Look At You, Smokin from Shootin from what I remember). It was really great. They had a 5th Monster as well, Will Johnson, who played the drums. He sang 2 songs as well, he has a great bluesy voice. Yim Yames played a lot on the bass. Dear God was really awesome, unbelieveable! Loved every moment of it, what a show it was!  8-)

As someone who sadly regrets missing out seeing MOF this time around, can anyone confirm or not if a different Monster usually sang different songs/verses live than on teh album?

Meaning like the SB&Me version Dills posted, and this version of Temazcal?

They were all done like the album version when I saw them.

In the new rolling stone mag Tom Petty throws out Monsters of Folk as one of the records out there that he is enjoying.

Last night in the dining hall the video for Say Please was playing on MTV. It was completely bizarre to look up and see Jim. It actually took me a while to register that it was really him.

;D at the idea of Fox News being the "definative unbiased source" on the best albums of the year as well.

I'll admit, they did put some great albums on there (Avett Bros, Morrissey), but some of the pop choices are a tad embarressing.

Come on Dark, don't you think that Bill O'Reilly knows what's up when it comes to current music?

Maybe someone stole one of the intern's iPods and turned it into this list.

QuoteMonsters of Folk got together back in February and recorded for a little while. This particular recording session was definitely more of a collaboration. Getting the glimpse into those three writers' lives or general motions, as far as completing a song, has definitely been insightful and educational.

Sweet!    Speaking of Will, check out his new solo album streaming below.   It's really really good!

I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

I'm just going to say "Hi!" to the thread so I'm tagged in it :) 

I'm so late to the game and only heard the MOF album a month ago, but I listen daily as I'm completely OBSESSED with the darned thing! 

:cheesy:
Babe, let's get one thing clear, there's much more stardust when you're near.

Welcome to the Monsters of Folk thread! :thumbsup: What's your favorite song off the album? Or top three since it might be hard to pick just one...  :smiley:

I'd have to do at least three, and they could change at any time, but I think right now I find myself singing (around the house, when not listening to the albums, tho it is assumed and a reality that if music is playing, I'm singing out loud, very loud):


  • The Right Place
  • The Sandman, the Brakeman and Me
  • Temezcul

Ask me in an hour and the list might change  :grin:
