Monsters of Folk - "Say Please"
I wasn't going to do a Traveling Wilburys joke, but... doesn't this sound a lot like the Traveling Wilburys? I mean, a LOT like the Wilburys. Just sayin'. Down to the walls of acoustic guitars and the circa-1989 snare drum sound. Conor Oberst is Dylan, M. Ward is Petty, and Jim James is Orbison, right? And Mike Mogis? Well, sorry Mogis, but you're Jeff Lynne. Also, according to the website, apparently Jim James has left the band and been replaced by the unusually named "Yim Yames."
*It's "please," Einstein.
