Your local triple-A format radio station’s favorite of this year’s supergroup explosion stopped by 30 Rock last night. That’s M. Ward, Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis, and Yim Yames, singing “Dear God (Sincerely M.O.F.),” the minor key harp and soul track from Monsters Of Folk’s self-titled debut. As has been the case on tour, Centro-matic’s Will Johnson is sitting behind the drums, although M.O.F. had an extra-extra special beat maker last night in ?uestlove, and the rest of the most fab Roots crew, who together made what was a simple supergroup into something like a preview of a Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony superjam from ten years into the future. Despite the star power, the song remains the same, but have a look anyway because Questo has a way with them brush sticks.
Monsters Of Folk is out. Also, they were on Conan awhile ago.
