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 the archive of posts here.
NPR has a stream of the new Kurt Vile album for you to listen to. Oh, and you should also be sure to stream the new album from Charles Bradley over on Rolling Stone, an album which comes out tomorrow.
My friend Megan over at Music vs Misery just posted her newest mix, A Long Way Back To The Light. It’s real good. You need to go download it ASAP.
Here’s a beautiful new video of Typhoon playing an old song of theirs, ‘Sea Shanty II.’ That new album can’t come out fast enough.

Ever wonder what it’d be like if Foals played in an empty hotel lobby? Well wonder no more, thanks to La Blogotheque.
Is this video of an all-clucking version of ‘Ho Hey’ absurd? Yes, but wonderfully so. Also: hilarious. I love it.
The other week I posted some gorgeous video from The Sight of Sounds of Kevin Large (the man behind Widower) playing ‘Jumper Cables.’ Here’s the second part of that session, this one with Kevin playing ‘Grasp.’
And finally, here’s Langhorne Slim and Wesley Schultz from The Lumineers covering Cohen’s ‘Tonight Will Be Fine.’ Enjoy.
