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.
Let’s go ahead and start off Monday on a (very wonderful) sappy note, shall we? Exactly two years ago I met a girl at a house show. Tyler Lyle was the main attraction for both her and I at that house show, and during his set he didn’t play ‘Winter Is For Kierkegaard,’ which I knew was her favorite song, so afterwards I went and asked him to play it (for her obviously, because I am nothing if not a very smooth gentleman) as we all sat around on my friend Heather’s living room floor (and he took a break from the leftover Chinese food he was eating). ’twas a good night, that one, and been a real, real good, life-changing two years. Here he is playing that tune recently.
A repost here in these parts, sure, but really can’t wait to see what this tune becomes on Josh Ritter’s new album.
PHOX: able to cover all of the songs, even ‘Lovefool.’
A new one from Hip Hatchet seems like a good way to end this, yes. Enjoy.
