Monsters of Folk

M. Ward

M. Ward will release A Wasteland Companion in April.

This will be his 6th solo project.

During the 3 years since his last album he recorded 2 marvelous records as She & Him with Zooey Deschanel as well as an album with the indie “supergroup’ Monsters of Folk.

A Wasteland Companion was recorded on-the-road with a slew of indie musicians.

“Primitive Girl” is an inviting preview.

The Roots

In my first Podcast “Dear God 2.0” by Monsters of Folk was included as one of the best of 2010 thus far. (Monsters of Folk is a modern-day supergroup consisting of Jim James from My Morning Jacket, Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes and M. Ward.) The Roots, one of the great American hip hop bands (and currently the house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) brilliantly use the song as a basis for their own commentary on the current crisis of contemporary life. From The Roots new album How I Got Over, “Dear God 2.0” is the Song of the Day.
