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.
Dan Mangan + Blacksmith’s new album is streaming over on NPR. You should go give it a spin.
Here’s M.C. Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger playing the title track from my favorite album of 2014 in a living room. It’s… god, it’s exceptional.
Ages and Ages playing ‘No Nostalgia,’ one of my favorite songs from the last few years, in black and white. Very much like.
Tyler Lyle has a new album in the works and you can, and really should, cause he’s awesome, help make it a reality. Here he is playing ‘California’ in a trailer before he cut off all his hair.
A couple videos of The Districts being The Districts, which is to say awesome.
Beautifully shot solo session with Strand of Oaks, this one.
And now, here’s Hey Rosetta! covering ‘Ooh La La.’
Finally updated the ‘What I’m Listening To’ playlist on Spotify– give it a listen if you’d like.
I leave you with Gregory Alan Isakov covering ‘The Trapeze Swinger’ in a church (you should go download it/the entire session right here). Enjoy.
