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.
NPR is streaming the debut disc from The Lone Bellow. You’d do well to give it a listen.
There are no less than three pieces on NPR that are more than worth your time: one on music resolutions for 2013 (mine’s to give each album at least 3 full spins before deleting songs from my ipod), one on the sad state of music writing/criticism/sites, and one reflecting on the year on the pop charts.
Looking for a fantastic some fantastic mixes? Sweet, cause Aggie over at Brand New Kind Of made a Best of-ish mix that has all sorts of goodness on it, and Music For Ant’s newest Winter Mix doesn’t skimp on the good stuff either. Get downloadin’.
Local Natives will be releasing their sophomore album later this month. Ahead of that they’ve released the second sing, ‘Heavy Feet.’ You should be excited for that album. Very excited.
Campfire OK released a fun little video of them setting up shop in a Nordstrom’s and playing ‘Primp And Prune.’ As you can see, no one minded.
No big deal, just the guys from Bryan John Appleby jamming on a Guy Clark song. Cause that’s normal.
The fine folks over at Sleepover Shows released a new video from their set with The Wooden Sky as a Christmas present to all. I like those types of presents.
The below video is of Tallest Man on Earth and Idiot Wind (his wife) covering my favorite song of 2012, ‘Working Titles’ by Damien Jurado. It’s…damnit, it’s real good. Enjoy.
