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.
Some exceptional reads for your Monday:
– Jeff Tweedy on why the album isn’t dead/is still important.
– Steven Hyden on the comeback of Garth Brooks (and why it may not be such a slam dunk).
– Louisa Thomas on the NFL, it’s domestic violence/violence problem, and why it’s so complicated to be a fan.
Watch as Highasakite cover Bon Iver’s ‘Heavenly Father’ in the loveliest of ways.
Hadn’t ever heard the original Sea Stacks song Hilang Child is covering here, but damn is this a gorgeous take.
Basia Bulat covering Leonard Cohen. Yes, please.
Not big on Sam Smith, but I am big on Eliza and the Bear covering his tune.
We end this Monday cover fest with Strand of Oaks covering The National, because yes. Enjoy.
