Straight out of every shoegazer’s dreams: M. Ward, Jim James, and Conor Oberst will be recording an album together.
Nice look Jimbo
Via Paste, the trio toured together as Monsters of Folk four years ago and have now decided to release an album together. Bright Eyes producer Mike Mogis appears to have also signed on. No release date is set and they couldn’t confirm what the group would play as, but pretty much everything I’ve read about this expects them to kick ass. And with good reason.
Paste also links to the blog I Am Fuel, You Are Friends, which has MP3s of a concert Monsters of Folk played a while back. The above Paste link has a video of the three playing together, but thanks to our hilariously slow work computers, I have no idea whether any of it is any good.
