I never considered self-indulgence a bad thing. Many critics always keep their high-strung arguments ever so close to their heart on the subject, but the fuss over this quality feels much too superfluous. Why must we strive to be better than our primal instincts? If artists have a romantic relationship with a style of music, let them be, dammit. There’s not much satisfaction to come out of sticking our noses up high because a musician indulges in a common sonic quality, they want us to indulge too. Lets keep in touch with those emotions, beloved indie rockers. [...]
The day after the release of his seventh album, A Wasteland Companion, M. Ward played a sold-out show in San Francisco Wednesday night.
Filed under: Q + A Press Here M. Ward has been kicking around the indie music scene for the past several years in a largely collaborative role. Though he has six solo albums to his name, in the last three years he has released two albums as one half of the twee-pop duo She and Him and one album as one fifth of the rootsy supergroup Monsters of Folk . [...]
M. Ward is back! Free of Zooey and his Bright Eyes co-conspirators, his new album, A Wasteland Companion, comes to us in April. A jaunty contrast to "The First Time I Ran Away," the album's sleepy first single, "Primitive Girl" shows off Ward's versatility with a sound strikingly reminiscent of James' iconic 1993 hit, "Laid." Enjoy the playful ode to a mysterious primordial dame below. STREAM: M. Ward - "Primitive Girl"
Tweet Listen to M. Ward 's new song "Primitive Girl" below, taken from the album "A Wasteland Companion" . When he's not being a part of Monsters Of Folk or She & Him , he's also a part of his own self-titled band called M. Ward, releasing albums since 1999 , most recently in 2009 with "Hold Time". [...]
M. Ward joins members of Norfolk and Western and Weinland to put out The Alialujuah Choir debut album full of 10 relaxing folk songs.
It's been almost three years since M.Ward released his latest solo album, Hold Time . In the time that has elapsed, Ward has kept himself busy with other projects, including She & Him and Monsters of Folk , both of which have been featured on TBT over the past year. On April 10th of this year, myself along with many [...]
Probably better known as the "Him" half, in ZoZo 's musical side-project, She & Him , (and as a member of Monsters of Folk ), M. Ward makes a welcome return to the familiar fields of his more soothing self. Have a listen below to the acoustic calypso vibes of 'The First Time I Ran Away', the opening taste of his seventh solo album, A Wasteland Companion , set to drop April 10th via Bella Union , his first for the label. The germane animation comes courtesy [...]
Carlos Forster (ft. M. Ward) - “Campfire Songs” + “I Walk I Talk” While I’ve read more than one version of the story behind Carlos Forster’s new solo LP, the gist remains the same: She & Him/Monsters of Folk’s M. Ward first met Forster in college, leading to on-and-off recording sessions with the former For Stars leader throughout the ’00s, finally culminating in the Ward-produced record, Family Trees . The result is an honorably unassuming set of relaxing folk jams, which a past description of Ward’s own music by Conor Oberst [...]

I saw My Morning Jacket live a few years back, touring in support of their 2008 album Evil Urges . They had no opening band and tore through two full sets in the misty outdoor fog of Berkeley's Greek Theater. Every single song they played had the energy and power and melt-your-face-off force [...]

She & Him/Monster of Folk’s M. Ward is turning his attention back toward his solo career with a new album in the works, his follow-up to 2009’s Hold Time , and a solo tour that kicked off last week in his adopted hometown of Portland, Oregon. “I’m going back to what it was when I first started, performing, writing and recording by myself,” he told HitFix of his plans to draft LP7 at home, adding later, “I have a giant backlog of songs that… I really haven’t had time to revisit or improve upon.

Earlier this year String Cheese Incident keyboard player and accomplished homebrewer Kyle Hollingsworth previewed his collaborative beer with the Boulder Beer Company - Hoopla Pale Ale - at the band's Winter Carnival. The dry-hopped beer, which Hollingsworth specifically designed for drinking at summer music festivals, will get its official national release both on tap as well as in 22-ounce bottles on May 14, with a special launch party at the Boulder Beer Company's brewpub in Boulder, CO. Here's the official description... Hoopla [...]
These guys might reject the supergroup moniker, but between Jim James, M. Ward, and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis they have assembled quite the team of talent.
Bright Eyes @ Radio City Music Hall, March 9 Words : Jeffrey Greenblatt Images : Jeremy Gordon It's hard to believe that it has been four years since Conor Oberst last recorded under his longtime moniker Bright Eyes , an eternity for a guy that is known for his prolific output. Since the 2007 release of Cassadaga , Oberst has stayed busy by releasing two "solo" albums of breezy, folk-rock with the Mystic Valley Band along with his contributions to the Monsters Of Folk - a [...]
Every now and again, something comes along that can't really be proven if it's true or not, because it exists on a plane of absolute absurdism. Case in point: Crèm-brû-log . Now, normally, if I were to tell you about a blog devoted solely to the distinct, creamy pleasure of Crème brûlé, you would scoff and say, what's so special about that? But if I told you the same blog was penned from My Morning Jacket's Jim James and his Monsters of Folk bandmate M. Ward, well then, you would scratch your head and go, that's interesting. [...]
