On Twitter and Facebook I share links each day to various stuff that I think is great and/or worth people’s time. But not everyone that comes here is on Twitter or Facebook, so I gather up the best of those links each Monday and post them here so everyone can get in on the fun. If you’ve missed any of the past Monday Links (or just want to waste some time), check the archive of posts here.
New records you should be streaming this Monday: Cataldo, Real Estate, Nick Waterhouse and Wake Owl.
Need even more stuff to listen to? Here’s a Soundcloud playlist of what I was listening to in February, and here’s a Spotify playlist of what I’m (generally) listening to right now.
Another new Michael Kiwanuka song? Yes, yes this does make me happy.
The last two videos from Houndmouth’s stop in LHS Room 125 went up last week and, well, they are spectacular.
Neither of these has anything to do with music, but this was a fascinating read on the branding/marketing behind The Lego Movie, and this was an incredibly interesting read on how all the Pixar movies tie together. I love animated movies.
Just Damien Jurado playing a song on a boat. No big deal.
I leave you with this lovely video of Jon from The Head and The Heart playing ‘Let’s Be Still.’ Enjoy.
Most Friday’s are for pop music around here. This one? It’s for pop music in cover form, thanks to this fantastic, slow-burning Drake cover from Sir Sly. Enjoy.
Bonus: I mean, this is a good reason to repost this fantastic Drake cover from Bear’s Den too, right? (The answer is yes.)
We can file ‘What’s On Your Mind’ by Greyhounds under ‘smooth, catchy as hell and soulful,’ methinks. Also under ‘things I think you’re really gonna like’ and ‘things Adam can’t stop listening to.’ Good tune, this one.
Greyhounds will be releasing Accumulator on April 8th. You can pre-order it right here. Enjoy.
This new tune from Vancouver Sleep Clinic is some kind of terrific, all soaring falsetto and an incredibly addictive beat built on the back of finger snaps. Enjoy.
I’ve had the supremely catchy, sweetly heartbreaking ‘Fill My Gums With Blood’ by Gengahr on repeat for the last few days. I think you’re gonna love it too, guys and girls. Enjoy.
‘Let It Breathe’ by Water Liars is the finest love song (and one of the finest songs) I’ve heard in a good long time. It’s a song about love after heartbreak, about that struggle to let someone else in and trust them, even someone you know has the best of intentions. It’s romantic yet honest and real. Those are, in my opinion, the best kinds of love songs.
Water Liars released a superb, self-titled album earlier this month. Enjoy.
