Monday Links

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 out the archive here.

I wrote about the 8 albums (it was a REAL good month) I liked best during April for my friends over at Vinyl Me, Please. Take a peek.

Well, this stripped down version of ‘Valley Clouds’ is some kind of wonderful.

Let’s go ahead and check in on Nathaniel Rateliff and those Night Sweats. Yep, still good.

Phox and Wild Child got together and formed The Bad Marriage and it’s really just altogether lovely.

Don’t care what language Okay Kaya is singing in, all I do care about is that this is a delight.

Very much a fan of this Covenhoven series where they play their gorgeous songs at home.

Really need Wet to have a tour stop in Denver soon, you guys.

Lapsley playing ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’? Yes, I will listen.

Let’s end this here post with Small Houses covering The Weakerthans, okay?

It’s been too long. Time for tunes.

‘Soft Animal’- The Hotelier
I have left this song on repeat for hours the last few days, that anthem of a chorus bringing me back over and over and over. Positively Japandroids-y (in the best way possible), this one.

‘Humbug Mountain Song’- Fruit Bats
Not sure I’ve heard anything this catchy in a good long while, and I’m positive I’m more excited about this record coming out than any other in the next while.

‘Little Gain’- The Heligoats
If there was a song catching than ‘Humbug Mountain Song’ that I’ve heard lately, it’s this one. Damn.

‘Loose Ends’- Star Parks
You should be very excited about the Star Parks album that comes out next month. Seriously. You’re going to love it.

‘Hold On’- Portage
Really missed Portage, you guys.

How about a brand new one and a favorite from his latest release from Tyler Lyle to start things off? Cool.

I will never tire of Josh Ritter and his songs.

Not real, but I would obviously buy this/request it if I ever found myself in a Waffle House.

Monica from Phox covering…Shania Twain? SURE, let’s do that.

Very much into Margaret Glaspy.

Also super into the new Kevin Morby album, you guys.

Threw together a little mix last Friday morning full of stuff I think is sounding best now that everything’s greening up and we’re able to roll our windows down again. Enjoy!

The tremendous new album from Fort Frances comes out this Friday, but you can hear it right now by clicking here. You should do that.

Still firmly on the Lucy Dacus Bandwagon, you guys.

Really enjoying this latest Hayes Carll album. It’s sad in a real deep, affecting way, which is, you know, what does it for me.

This Damien Jurado session is rather wonderful, yes.

Man, I love this Jason Isbell song so damn much.

Here’s what I’ve been listening to so far this month. Enjoy.

Let’s talk about tunes.

‘Fill In The Blank’- Car Seat Headrest
This is the first time I ‘get’ the hype around Car Seat Headrest. This song is phenomenal.

‘WAAAVES’ (Kanye West cover)- JMR
Really love this cover of one of two songs I really like from that Kanye album.

‘Pretty Fair Miss’- Daniel Martin Moore
I just love Daniel Martin Moore’s voice so much, you guys.

‘Playing With Fire’- Nick Leng
Pretty sure Nick Leng knows only how to make delightful music/sounds.

‘One More Night’- Michael Kiwanuka
Very much about everything from this new Michael Kiwanuka album so far.

Let’s talk about the important things first: you need to go listen to the new albums from Sturgill Simpson (likely the most exciting record I’ve heard this year) and Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop (one of the most lovely records I’ve heard this year). And then listen again. And again.

And now, here’s Star Parks playing one of my favorite songs of 2016.

Still real stuck on Pinegrove, you guys.

Mothers playing the Tiny Desk? Yes, please.

It’s spring. This Covenhoven song is still perfect.

That Daughter album that came out in January? It’s still really damn good.

Howdy. Here are some tunes I think you should listen to.

‘Near You’- Adeline Hotel
Short, sweet and altogether great. Very large fan of the whole classic rock vibe here.

‘It’s A Job’- Wolfie’s Just Fine
I still am trying to wrap my mind around the fact that this is a song sung by Taco from The League. It is so fantastic.

‘Lost Dreamers’- Mutual Benefit
Well, this is tremendously lovely.

‘Ballad of Big Nothing’ (Elliott Smith cover)- Julien Baker
We need to start a new petition to have Julien Baker cover all of the songs.

‘Eye of a Hurricane’- Kyle Craft
Let’s get a little unhinged and kinda weird, you guys.

‘Vertebrae’- Sam Moss
That moment when the slow burn opening gives way to those slow, full strums? That’s real nice.

‘Plucky’- Morly
Obviously always all about minimalist pop songs. You know that, duh.
