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.
Just, you know, going to copy & paste what I wrote last week, because it still applies: GO STREAM THE NEW ALBUM FROM TYPHOON RIGHT NOW. (Oh, and want to add a whole other level of awesome/heartbreak to your listening experience? Read this piece that Kyle (the lead singer) wrote about it. Damn.)
You need this new mix from Ryan Hollingsworth. It’s full of jams. Full. Of. Jams. Get it.
The Head and The Heart released the first single from their upcoming album last week. Take a listen to ‘Shake’:
Speaking of The Head and The Heart- here’s Josiah playing a brand spanking new song in a parking garage last week. Goodness, this line: ‘And if I have to sing for the rest of my life, I’ll put you in a song; you can be there every night.’
Heather over at Fuel/Friends posted a brand new Chapel Session with Pickwick last week. It’s… guys and gals, it’s terrific in every way. And it’s free for you to download. Go get it. (Here’s ‘Santa Rosa’ from it. You know, in case you, for some reason, need to be convinced of its terrificness.)
J. Roddy Walston & The Business released ‘Marigold,’ the second single from their upcoming album, last week. Turn it up.
Haim covered Sheryl Crow’s ‘Strong Enough’ while they were in Australia recently. They can basically do no wrong.
Super Worthwhile Kickstarter Alert: Caroline Smith needs your help putting out her new album (which is sure to be superb). Help her out here.
Just Matthew Hauck (Phosphorescent) playing ‘The Mermaid Parade’ on a rooftop. Normal stuff. Yep. Enjoy.
