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 Camera Obscura… and still streaming the record that Laura Marling is releasing today. The Cellar Door are releasing an absolutely gorgeous new EP as well and are currently streaming it over on Bandcamp. You’d do well to give each of those a listen.
Summer is right around the corner, so Music For Ants released their latest summer mix last week. Go download it ASAP. (I’ll have mine up next Monday)
Conor from The Changing Colors stopped by KRCC in Colorado Springs recently and played a lovely cover of Josephine Foster’s “Stones Throw From Heaven.’ Lucky for us, Kevin Ihle was there to get some video of it.
Listen, I know there has been a lot of talk about The National lately… but seriously, just read this piece. It’s wonderful in every single way.
This is my worst nightmare (when/if I have kids).
Gorgeous video here of Seryn playing a new tune called ‘Ivory Black’ by a creek during SXSW.
Zach from We Listen For You posted an absolutely great piece titled ‘How To Hate A Band’ last week. You need to read it (especially if you happen to be someone who writes music reviews for a living).
Pickwick recorded a session with the young folks in LHS Room 125 a little while back and the first two videos from the stop made there way onto the internet last week. They are two of my favorites that LHS Room 125 Productions has ever put out. Enjoy.
