Monsters of Folk

Monsters of Folk - My Morning Jacket's Jim James, M. Ward and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis - recently wrapped their first North American tour. DJ Alisa Ali had a chance to catch up with James and Ward during their recent stop in New York and discussed the bandmates' deep affection for one another, the mysteries of Conor Oberst's basement and the unique camaraderie (fueled by sparkling water) which shaped their debut album. Plus, a very special acoustic performance of three songs: MOF's "Temazcal" and "Good Way" and My Morning Jacket's "Golden."

Listen to Alisa's exclusive interview above.

Monsters of Folk premiered their new video for "Say Please" on Tuesday night. The video, which finds the band leaving a World War I-era trench and performing at an ice-skating rink, is below.
