Will Johnson Is the Where's Waldo of Folk Supergroups

Yesterday, various social media outlets were literally on fire with the news of Centro-matic singer Will Johnson's "supergroup" with the Kadane Brothers and Pedro the Lion's David Bazan.

That almost made us forget about his other other band, New Multitudes, which features Jay Farrar, Anders Parker and his former Monsters of Folk cohort, Jim James. They've got a self-titled album out next week on Rounder Records, which mines Woody Guthrie's unreleased catalog. If that roster of talent didn't make it clear, it's pretty great, and Guthrie's daughter Nora guided the four through his old ephemera for inspiration.

Apparently someone on the Conan O'Brien team really likes it too, because you can stream the album here. "My Revolutionary Mind" especially is pretty lovely.

The Will Johnson in that picture is an un-official Drive-by Trucker and does cool baseball paintings; I'm sure you have your Will Johnsons mixed up.
