Tunes. Yes.

‘No Matter Where We Go’- Whitney
This is two minutes and forty or so seconds of sunshine.

‘Milk & Honey’- Billie Marten
‘I’m just content with time well spent.’ Yes, that. (Thanks, Alex!)

‘I Want You’ (Bob Dylan cover)- Phosphorescent
Again: we need Phossy to cover all of the songs. (Thanks, Paul!)

‘Bulletproof’- Cantina
This one. All damn day.

‘Warning Call’- Chvrches
New Chvrches song sounds like a Chvrches song, which means I love it.

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.

When I think about Bandcamp and how awesome they are my brain basically just fills up with heart eyes emojis.

The Hotelier has an album coming out this Friday. It is excellent and streaming right here and you should listen to it very loudly.

This is one of my very favorite love songs (and it’s the song my fiance had Tyler play for us in our house after we got engaged, because she is the best).

A new song from The Districts? Yes, please.

The best way you can spend the next half hour or so is with this Hey Marseilles set.

New week, new tunes.

‘Sleeping In A Car’- The Staves
You guys, this new EP from The Staves that came out last week is [insert five of those hundred emojis here].

‘Okkervil River R.I.P.’- Okkervil River
It’s real nice (and heartbreaking) to have Will back.

‘Sunset’- The Midnight
Raise your hand if you’re ready for summer.
:::RAISES HAND SO HIGH::::

‘My Sweet Midwest’- Fruit Bats
Yes, I would like to listen to a damn catchy song about where I’m from. Thanks.

Sorry to let him do this right off the bat, but Hayes Carll is here to rip your heart out.

I know I’ve posted this song about 5 times around here, but I don’t care: Laura Gibson playing ‘Empire Builder’ on the Empire Builder Amtrak line that inspired the song’s title is very cool. Also: you can never hear this song enough.

Oh. Oh wow. This from Gordi is stunning.

Still not tired of these Julie Baker songs, you guys.

Shakey Graves covering John Prine? Yes, please. Enjoy.

A few tunes worth your time.

‘Past Lives’- Local Natives
It makes me very happy that Local Natives is back (and this song is incredibly good).

‘I Need A Forest Fire’- James Blake feat. Bon Iver
Oh. Oh wow.

‘Liars’- Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony
This little collaboration album is going to kill us all dead, I think. Holy crap.

‘The Hereafter’- Mutual Benefit
Forgot how much I missed Mutual Benefit and his/their beautiful, dream-like songs.

‘True Love Waits’ (Radiohead cover)- Fort Frances
I’m not a huge Radiohead fan, but I came across one of the many bootleg versions of this song a long time ago and have been obsessed ever since. I love how David slowed it down here.

The tremendous new album from Fruit Bats is streaming ahead of its release on Friday, as is the terrific new EP from The Staves. You’d do well to go listen to each ASAP.

Still all about that Pinegrove, you guys.

You know I know nothing about rap, but this Chance The Rapper performance is really, really great.

How about a couple more new Tyler Lyle songs? Thought you’d like that.

More live videos of Fort Frances, please.

Yeah, so this Laura Gibson song will still rip your heart out, in case you were wondering.

This is my favorite track from that Sam Beam & Jessca Hoop album. It probably always will be.

Let’s go ahead and end with this lovely Tiny Desk Concert from Florist, shall we?

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?
