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.
Carl Wilson & Ann Powers’ exchange about pop music and pop music criticism is the best thing I read all of last week.

Because ‘Youth’ wasn’t already a crushing enough song, Daughter went ahead and recorded it with an orchestra.
Here’s Shakey Graves playing ‘Parliament’ on a farm during Pickathon. Absolutely cannot wait for that full-length he’s been working on.
This video of kids using Walkmans makes me feel so old.
This new Vacationer tune sounds like summer.
A couple of tremendous Take Away Shows to end this week’s update. The first from Mutual Benefit, the second from MØ. Enjoy.
