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 Willis Earl Beal (as well as the new albums from Neko Case and Okkervil River). You should spend some time over on NPR.

‘Music is about moments. We should be so lucky to be its explorers.’ Jonathan Bitz gets it. Man does he get it.

The National released an absolutely silly, wonderful video last week for ‘Graceless,’ which is decidedly not a silly song. It works, somehow.

Check out Sharon Van Etten playing a tremendous new song titled ‘Tarifa’ for KEXP at Pickathon.

Below is a brand new Take Away Show from La Blogotheque featuring Phoenix. It was shot with a drone, apparently. Incredible.

No big deal, just Jason Isbell playing a set on a porch for Garden & Gun. Totally normal.

We talked a bit last week about ‘Gold Isle,’ one of two fantastic new tunes Hilang Child recently released. Well, now there’s a simple, stunning video of Ed playing the song in a garden for you to enjoy.

Daughter unveiled a new b-side titled ‘Smoke’ last week. It’s more of what you’ve come to expect from them, which is to say it is sparse and wonderful and will make you feel feelings.

Did I laugh so hard at a few sections of this piece that I cried? Maybe. (Yes, yes I did.)

I have no words for how beautiful this video of Jay William Henderson playing ‘The Sun Will Burn Our Eyes’ is. Whoa.

All bands should strive to make official videos as clean, simple and good as Pickwick. Man. This latest one for ‘Hacienda Motel’ is fantastic.

This video of Ian Fisher & The Present playing ‘Regret’ with some help from Phia is just lovely.

We end today with a new live video of Vikesh Kapoor playing ‘I Dreamt Blues.’ Holy hell, you guys. Enjoy.
