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.
There’s a collection of Iron & Wine rarities that comes out tomorrow… but you can listen to it early right here. It’s superb.

This interview with Sufjan Stevens about his new album is one of the best interviews I’ve read in a good long while, providing some fantastic, heartbreaking insight into the backstory of his new album as well as some fantastic quotes from Sufjan about life, love and forgiveness. Do yourself a favor and read it.
Hiss Golden Messenger put out a new EP the other week, which included the below brand new tune. In related news, Hiss Golden Messenger is good at music.
