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.
The new album from Alabama Shakes is streaming ahead of its release tomorrow. You should go listen to it. Right now. It might be the finest thing I’ve heard so far this year.
Here’s Justin Vernon covering Spoon. Wow.
Wanna watch Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats burn the place to the ground? Yeah, you do.
I use the word lovely to describe The Staves a lot, but seriously, they are lovely.
Absolutely love the way Benjamin Booker and his band play with the rhythm of ‘Wicked Waters’ here.
Sean Rowe covers Lucinda Williams. It is very, very good.
And now, Husky on a Berlin rooftop.
If you ever get the chance to see Vikesh Kapoor live, you need to do so. Here he is playing ‘Ode To My Hometown.’
Lucy Rose and her band playing her catchy single. It’s real catchy.
Here’s what I’ve been listening to so far this month (click here to listen on Soundcloud). Enjoy.
