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 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. Enjoy.
Biggest news of the week: there will be a new Typhoon record next year. They’re releasing a 7” with ‘Common Sentiments’ (which is insanely good and can be heard below in all its studio glory) and ‘Green’ on October 30th (preorder here) to get you ready for it.
Edit: You can now stream the new album from Kopecky Family Band over on Paste. Do that. It’s got handclaps and rock and roll and is awesome.
I like pop music. You probably like pop music. We should stop being ashamed of this fact, as Rookie Magazine brilliantly explains.
Tyler Lyle covered ‘You Belong To Me’ awhile back in front of his computer. It’s lovely, as one would expect.
Speaking of Tyler, you can hear a demo of a wonderful new song titled ‘Hollywood, Forever’ over on his site.
La Blogotheque posted a Take Away Show with Alt-J last week. As one would expect, it’s beautiful.
The Local Strangers have a new album coming out next month and released the first single, ‘Mr. Blackberry,’ last week. Get ready- the album is full of goodness.
I went and saw Nick Waterhouse and Allah-Las last week and the night closed with both groups on stage covering ‘It’s All Over Now.’ It was awesome and looked a lot the video below. Enjoy.
