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.
Two things I love: my momma and the stories behind songs. Here’s Leon Bridges talking about the story behind/playing his song ‘Lisa Sawyer’ (which, spoiler, is a song about his momma).
Have had the new EP from Fort Frances on repeat the last week. Here they are in session for City Winery, featuring a couple old favorites and a couple new favorites.
How about a full set from Nathaniel Rateliff, too? Cool. Starts about 3 minutes in, is very awesome.
Phox covering Blink 182? Sure, yeah, let’s do this.
An acoustic version of ‘The Bear At The Window’ from The Barr Brothers sounds like a thing we need in our lives, yes.
Here’s Whitehorse and Abby & Noah Gundersen covering Neil Young, because that is a thing that should happen. Man alive.
Small Houses in an abandoned silo? Yes, please.
Here’s what I’ve been listening to so far this month (click here to listen on Soundcloud). Enjoy.
