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.
Ben Gibbard playing his favorite song of 2014, ‘Archie, Marry Me,’ by Alvvays. Real. Good.
Nathaniel Rateliff and his band playing a song they haven’t released yet, ‘Nashville.’ It’s very much something that needs to be released ASAP.
Not new, but very beautiful: The Staves playing ‘Open’ for The Line of Best Fit. Goodness.
James Vincent McMorrow recorded a show of his in LA on his last tour. He then put it up on his website for you to download for free. It is awesome. Go download it, guys and girls.
First Aid Kit covering REM… with Peter Buck, of REM.
We end this here update with a Soundcloud playlist of what I’ve been listening to so far this month/year. Click here to listen on Soundcloud if you’d like. Enjoy.
