‘The Sandman, The Brakman and Me’ by Monsters of Folk

For whatever reason I’ve had Monsters of Folk stuck in my head lately. I haven’t really listened to their album for a few months now but it’s definitely one of my favorites of the year. The one song in particular that I’ve been humming is The Sandman, The Brakeman and Me which on the album is sung primarily by M. Ward with backing vocals by Jim James. In the video above is an alternate, sorta’ live version where M. Ward and Mr. James split vocal duties.  It’s an equally beautiful version that’s worth your time, in my opinion.
