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 out the archive here.
A Take Away Show with St. Paul & The Broken Bones seems like a good thing to watch on a Monday, yes.
First Aid Kit shared a simple, lovely new video last week of them playing a stripped down version of ‘Master Pretender.’ I’d take something like this every week from them.
Four songs from Shakey Graves’ new album done live on KEXP? Yes, please.
Here’s Ryan Adams playing ‘My Wrecking Ball’ backstage at Fallon. Very much a fan of this.
This less urgent take on (one of the finest songs of the year) ‘Afraid of Nothing’ by Sharon Van Etten is absolutely stunning.
Should have posted this as part of last week’s update, but here’s what I’ve been listening to so far this month (click here to listen on Soundcloud). Enjoy.
