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.

Small Houses is really, really good at the whole writing and singing songs thing. Here he is playing ‘Seventeen in Roselore’ for Shaker Steps.
Also really good at the whole writing and singing songs thing? Donovan Woods.
Oh, you know, just Reignwolf playing some rock and roll in Studio Q. No big deal.
This Fiona Apple cover from Kevin Long is a punch in the gut. A really beautiful one, sure, but a punch right in the gut nonetheless. Enjoy.
