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.
Actual words on it at some point probably, but you should really stream that new album from The War on Drugs today and then buy it tomorrow. EDIT: You can (and should, because it’s delightful) stream the new album from Ages and Ages, too.
My friends in The Local Strangers released a gorgeous new video last week for my favorite song of theirs, ‘I Will Let You Down.’
Lucius stopped by LHS Room 125 to play some songs and chat, just adding to the already very strong case that there is no cooler classroom in the land.
Watch Hozier play ‘Take Me To Church’ outside at SXSW. Big things ahead for this guy.
There are not big things ahead for any of the bands mentioned in the video, because none of them (except, oddly, DJ Costco, according to the internets) exists.
Just The Avett Brothers hanging out backstage at Fallon, covering ‘Thank God I’m A Country Boy.’ Totally normal.
Just PHOX being lovely at SXSW.
Big fan of this here video of Birds of Tokyo playing ‘Lanters’ for North Shore Sessions.
Nathaniel Rateliff and Gregory Alan Isakov covering Cohen’s ‘Passing Through’ seems like the best way to end this week’s edition. Real, real nice. Enjoy.
