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.
Music For Ants posted their spring mix last week. Go download it– it’s superb and will make your ears happy.
This video of Brandon Flowers, Father John Misty and Local Natives covering Johnny Cash was easily the best thing I watched last week.
And this is the best thing I read last week.
Houndmouth covering John Prine is really something lovely.
Here’s an acoustic version of ‘A Memory of You’ from the new Matthew and the Atlas album that comes out in a few weeks. Get real, real excited.
Also posted by The Mahogany Blog last week: Michael Kiwanuka playing a solo version of ‘You’ve Got Nothing To Lose.’
Terrific acoustic session recorded in Belgium here from Mutual Benefit.
Here’s Small Houses playing ‘Revel, Revel’ during SXSW.
Weekly reminder: you were (very likely) never a student in a classroom that was this awesome.
Just Nathaniel Rateliff playing ‘Don’t Get Too Close’ in a London studio. No big deal.
Here’s To Kill A King performing ‘Howling’ on the streets of Cologne.
Here’s a playlist of what I was listening to during March (click here if you want to listen over on Soundcloud). Enjoy.
