On Twitter 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, so I figured it makes sense to gather up the best of those links each Monday and post them here so that everyone can get in on the fun. Enjoy.
There are some folks making what is sure to be an unbelievable documentary on the festival I went to this summer and won’t stop yammering on and on and on about: Doe Bay Fest. They are in their final week of their Kickstarter campaign and are so so close to getting there. They could use your help (and I guarantee the film will blow your mind once finished…just watch the trailer).
Okkervil River dropped a surprise on everyone and released Golden Opportunities 2, a follow up little mix to their Christmas inspired Golden Opportunities mixtape from a few years back. It’s free and it’s full of goodness- be sure to head on over and download it.
It’s year end list time for everyone (myself included….check back later today for the start of that) and Dave over at Rawkblog provides a pretty great breakdown of why it seems so many of these lists suck.
Fuel/Friends released their latest gorgeous Chapel Session last week with the incredible These United States. It’s full of all kinds of great stuff, including a new and absolutely fantastic song. There’s not a lot that’s better than hearing good music played in a little chapel.
As I went through my iTunes library last week I ran back across this wonderful acoustic rendition of ‘Wake Up’ that the Arcade Fire did for a radio station some time ago. I’m glad I did.
Want some great music for free? Everyone does. Head on over to NoiseTrade and grab (for the price of your email) a compilation that the fine folks over at American Songwriter have put together titled The Best of American Songwriter Sessions featuring some exclusive performances from some of today’s best wordsmiths.
Interested in a ridiculous recording of an artist in their youthful prime? Head on over to Aquarium Drunkard and download a set from Stevie Wonder recorded 1/31/1974. I remember sitting in awe a few years back when I first heard it, and I did the same this last week. Unbelievable stuff.
Drew Grow and the Pastors’ Wives had the privilege of being NPR’s song of the day last Friday with the magnificent ‘It All Comes Right.’ The band celebrated by putting up the album version and an acoustic version for free download. If you don’t know/haven’t bought a copy of the song yet now you have no excuse.
Always nice to find new songs from your a favorite band in the middle of a dreary afternoon, and finding the below unplugged new song from Milo Greene on Saturday was no exception. As expected, it’s just beautiful. Enjoy.
