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.
Said the Gramophone’s list of Best Songs of 2013 is up. Their year-end songs list is my favorite list every single year. Go listen/download/enjoy the tremendous writing.
James Vincent McMorrow released the newest single (‘Red Dust’) last week from his forthcoming sophomore album. It’s tremendous.
Wake Owl released ‘Candy’ last week, our first taste of what to expect from their debut album that’s due out in March.
It’s been mentioned here before, but Donovan Woods really is the best. This is just one more reason why.
I love this silly song from Big Sur so much.
The title track from one of the albums I’m most looking forward to in 2014, Noah Gundersen’s debut full-length, now has a video.
The young folks in LHS Room 125 tried something a little different for their third video from the session PHOX did with them, this time doing things in black and white for ‘1936.’ It turned out real, real well.
It’s below freezing here but I’ll be damned if this re-recorded version of ‘Weekends’ that Tiger Waves released last week doesn’t sound absolutely fantastic.
Mutual Benefit playing ‘Auburn Epitaphs’ in a park in upstate New York. Happens all the time.
Tim Noyes playing ‘Dead Rachel’ for Two Truths and A Lie. Heartbreakingly good.
Lorde surprised pretty much everyone by releasing a brand new single last Friday. It’s real, real catchy. Enjoy.
