Monsters of Folk, Bright Eyes, M. Ward and My Morning Jacket

mofGoing to see Monsters of Folk in The Hague (Dutch city, not William Hague’s gaff…though not would be quite novel) this weekend, and am pretty damn excited. They’ve been playing epic Springsteen-style sets and at the weekend they did a 40-song set in New York. It’s gonna be special, but a real pity they’re not doing a Dublin date. The small European tour (which will prob be their only one) also only takes in two UK shows.

Anyhow, for those of you who don’t know MoF, they’re made up of M.Ward, Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band), Mike Moggis (Bright Eyes) and Jim James (My Morning Jacket). Three of my favourite songwriters in one band, and I’m particularly a huge Oberst fan. So naturally I’m been on a huge Bright Eyes/ MMJ buzz this week. Below are some of my fav tunes from these songwriters, with some cool videos to boot. Enjoy.
