Video: Monsters of Folk with the Roots, Live on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Man, Jim James looks downright clean-cut in this video. And the sound is almost like “the softer side of Monsters of Folk” compared to the videos we posted from their recent Halloween gig. Although I think I prefer the rockin’ version of M.O.F, I definitely dig this tune. I’m not sure the Roots added all that much to the tune compared to the studio version, but it’s still pretty killer. What can I say, I’m a sucker for Jim James vocals and pedal steel.
