Monsters of Folk played “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” and were joined by current house band, the Roots:

Monsters of Folk Perform “Dear God (Sincerely M.O.F.” on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” [Hulu]

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.
