Monsters Of Folk Drop Album Preview

Well, we have to say: we just keep getting more excited for this record. Monsters Of Folk have dropped two more tracks from their upcoming record on their myspace page, and another five track "teasers" on youtube. In addition to the formerly released, "Say Please", they've also let "Dear God", and "The Sandman, The Brakeman, And Me" loose on the internets.

With every new track that we hear, we're more and more impressed at the degree to which these tunes seem to leverage the talents of all the members, while at the same time holding their own unique persona. "Dear God" unquestionably under the influnce of Evil Urges MMJ, while "The Sandman" toes the line between the acoustic worlds of Oberst and Ward.

It boggles the mind what, with tracks this good, the band will be able to do live. You can bet we'll be there to find out.
