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.
A short, sweet Pinegrove song that’s only on the European deluxe edition of the tremendous album they released earlier this year? Yes, I would like to hear that.
Wrote about my favorite records from August for my friends over at Vinyl Me, Please. It feels real good to be done with The Great Summer Music Lull.
I’ve listened to the studio version of James Vincent McMorrow jam an inappropriate number of times. This live version is even better, maybe?
Here’s Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster playing one of the very best songs of 2016 (from one of the very best records of 2016, which will be out later this month).
This Anderson .Paak Tiny Desk Concert is basically just 15 minutes of excitement.
My, this is lovely stuff from Billie Marten.
You write a real good song about the Midwest and I am gonna listen to it over and over and never tire of it.
Lisa Hannigan is just making beautiful music, you guys.
And now, here’s Fort Frances covering ‘Summer In The City’ on a rooftop.
Oh, yeah: here’s a mix I made for some friends. It contains some of my favorite songs (and favorite recordings of those songs) and it’s made to be the perfect soundtrack for these late summer nights. Enjoy.
