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.
You’d do well to give a listen to the debut album from Houndmouth if you haven’t yet- it comes out tomorrow and it is terrific.
I’ve started to compile all the songs that I’ve posted here into YouTube playlists. Fun fact: YouTube playlists have a 200 video max. Anyhow, the first three playlists are now up and feature songs posted from the start of the blog through part of April this year (I think). I’ll work on getting it all up to date (along with the ones featured in Monday Links) at some point. Check out/watch through the playlists out here.
The Ruckus got Rocky Votolato to play ‘Portland Is Leaving’ (with some help from Emily Barker) for their ‘Loitering With Intent’ series. The Ruckus is awesome. So is Rocky.
No big deal, just Cayucas playing ‘East Coast Girl’ while walking the streets of Amsterdam.
WELL THIS SEEMS LIKE CRAZY TALK. (No, it doesn’t. It makes a lot of damn sense.)
The young folks of LHS Room 125 released their last video from their session with Pickwick (which also doubles as the last video of the school year). It’s for ‘Brother Roland’ and it is some kind of stunning. Mannnn.
This video of The Local Strangers singing ‘Gasoline,’ a new song of theirs, a capella with The Cellar Door is lovely. Absolutely lovely.
Halfway House caught up with Small Houses at SXSW and shot a little video for ‘I Saw Santa Fe.’ Whoaaaaaaaaaa. Enjoy.
