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.

A new song from Widower? Yes, please.
TWO new ones from Shakey Graves? Double yes, please.

You know who else can cover whatever and whoever they damn well please? First Aid Kit, that’s who.
It’s a new month. Here’s a playlist of (most of) what I was listening to last month (click here to listen on Soundcloud). Enjoy.
