a note about this track

Leave it to the unpredictable Mark Oliver Everett, a.k.a. E, to spend four years working on 12-track album Hombre Lobo and then produce another 14 songs just seven months later. End Times, his band Eels' eight full-length studio release, is a return to reality for Everett, who's calling it his "divorce album." T

Monsters Of Folk

Monsters Of Folk 2009 via Shangri-La
a note about this track

Monsters of Folk are an indie supergroup made up of Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes, and indie singer-songwriter M. Ward. Mogis, who also produced the album, recalled the recording of this track to Express Night Out: "That was kind of a collaborative thing [a repetitive motif where each vocalist repeats the same line back and forth]. There's sort of weird effects that go with it. I honestly can't remember who's idea it was, I think Jim just did that "There and then you're gone," and then Conor was like, "You should do it again." And then that call and response thing [emerged]. I put some treatments to the vocals to give it reappearing and disappearing sort of feel, so it doesn't feel quite as obvious. I think it was like a group brainstorming moment where everyone was throwing the same idea out at the same time."
