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.
If you haven’t checked out NPR’s Songs We Love app/interactive site, you need to go do so right this very moment. It includes 304 of their staff’s favorite songs released in 2014, spanning just about every genre. Terrific stuff and a great way to find a little something new to love.
Saw Sean Rowe open for Shakey Graves last week here in Denver and was completely blown away. Here he is covering ‘1952 Vincent Black Lightning.’
Water Liars playing ‘Turn Me On’ in an alley is about as good as it gets.
The Decemberists have a new album coming out early next year. Here’s Colin Meloy playing a song from it called ‘Carolina Low.’
Intense, beautiful video of Angel Olsen playing ‘Iota’ here for The Line of Best Fit. Enjoy.
