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 should really head over to NPR and stream the tremendous new album from Slow Club.
The video from Bear’s Den for ‘Elysium’ is pretty terrific on its own, but the story behind it makes it one of the more powerful videos I’ve seen this year.
Arkells laying down an acoustic rendition of one of my favorite songs of 2014 (‘Come To Light’)? Yes, please.
Always nice when one of your favorite videomakers finds an old video they shot of one of your favorite artists.
PHOX only knows how to do stunning, lovely things.
Thing that is great: Houndmouth covering ‘Northeast Texas Women.’
I’m not at all sure what the hell is going on in this new video from Bahamas, but I do know that I love the song.
No big deal, just Chet Faker covering ‘(Lover) You Don’t Treat Me No Good.’
Watching this beautifully shot video of Typhoon show from last fall is probably the best thing you can do with the next hour of your life. Enjoy.
