Song of the Week 11/6/09

Monsters of Folk - "Say Please"

This 21st century Traveling Wilburys -- consisting of M. Ward, My Morning Jacket's Jim James and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis -- played a pretty good show last night at the Beacon Theater. With such expansive back catalogs to choose from each artist, as well as their self-titled collaborative album, these guys could have easily played six hours together instead just close to three. The first single from Monsters of Folk is the lightweight little ditty "Say Please." And while it's probably a song these guys could write in their sleep, it's damn catchy and a great show opener. I kept wishing they would play it again during some of the more somber numbers they broke out.
