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 the archive of posts here.

NPR is now streaming the new album from Mikal Cronin. Get on it. Oh, and don’t forget to give a listen to the debut albums from Cayucas and Daughter ahead of their release tomorrow.

Sam from Folk Hive just posted her spring mix. It is amazing and it will most certainly sound good to your ears. Go get it ASAP.

Here’s Portugal. The Man hanging out in a coffee shop, playing ‘So American’ on coffee shop things. No big deal.

Water Liars stopped by for a session with the fantastic young folks in LHS Room 125, and the videos from it started to show up last week. Here’s ‘Linens’:

This video is perfect in every way.

I agree with this entire article from the New Yorker about still loving Winnie Cooper.

This piece on the music of my youth makes me feel so old. It also makes me want to give that old Taking Back Sunday cd a spin for old times’ sake.

Here’s Laura Marling playing ‘Once,’ a lovely song from her forthcoming album…

…and here’s a gorgeous short film that features the first 4 songs from that aforementioned forthcoming album.

iTunes turned 10 this last week. This Grantland piece breaks down how much has changed since its launch. (Spoiler: a lot has changed)

A new song from Bahamas? Yes, please.

The Tallest Man on Earth stopped by the Moog Sound Lab awhile back to lay down a completely amazing/insane version of ‘There’s No Leaving Now.’

Daughter paid a visit to the BBC Radio One Live Lounge over the weekend and covered Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky.’ It’s pretty freaking awesome.

The folks from GoPro caught up with Philippe Bronchtein (better known to you as Hip Hatchet) at SxSw and got him to play ‘Misdirected Man’ for them with one of their cameras attached to the end of his guitar. Very cool.

Stunning video here from Southern Souls of Kalle Mattson playing a new song of his called ‘A Love Song To The City.’

Here’s Bear’s Den playing what I think is the saddest song released this year, ‘Agape,’ in a church. Sorry?

Really, really gorgeous new video from Hayden for ‘Oh Memory’ right here.

I will likely have a post about Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats sometime soon, but I can’t wait until whenever that is to share this video of them playing their song ‘Son Of A Bitch.’ It’s like a profane gospel song. It is amazing. Enjoy

    That Water Liars video is so perfect. Gonna write about them in the next couple weeks for KDHX. I’m entirely too stoked on that band to write anything other than something grotesquely fawning…
