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 can now stream the new album from Dr. Dog. Probably a real good idea to do that. Edit: Lorde’s debut album is also now streaming. Get on it, kids. Edit #2: Basia Bulat’s lovely new record is now streaming, too.
Looking for a great mix to soundtrack your autumn? Music For Ants has you covered.
We talked a bit about that tremendous new album from Nathaniel Rateliff last week, but just to drive home the point about how damn good it is, here’s Nathaniel playing ‘Nothing To Show For’ on a rooftop.
What’s awesome about this new video from Caroline Smith for ‘Magazine’? All of the things, that’s what.
Jim James recently stopped by Lawrence High School’s Room 125 recently to record a session with the kids, because that’s totally normal. Here’s the first video from that session (for my favorite MMJ song), ‘Tonight, I Want To Celebrate With You.’
Counting Crows’ August and Everything After was the first album I ever loved. This stellar piece from Steven Hyden has prompted me to give it multiple listens again over the last few days. I still love it.
I have a new dream job: baseball archaeologist.
Long, fantastic read on David Bazan and his affinity for living room tours.
Typhoon stopped by KDHX in St. Louis and played a stunning, stripped down set, which you can (and should) now listen to below.
As one would expect, this video of Nick Mulvey playing ‘Ailsa Craig’ for City Sessions is really lovely.
Here’s Dan Croll playing ‘Only Ghost’ for his The Wild Honey Pie Buzzsession. It’s good. Real good.
If it’s good enough for Basia Bulat to end her shows with, it’s good enough to end Monday Links with. Goodness. Enjoy.
