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.
September was a real, real good month, both in life and with music. Here’s all the music I loved the most from those 30 days.
How about we start with a new Pinegrove song? Yes, let’s do that.
Your next 37+ minutes are spoken for, thanks to Valley Queen.
And now, here’s Keaton Henson playing a really sad version of one of the saddest songs of the year. Goodness.
Julia Jacklin’s debut album comes out at the end of the week. You should be very excited about it.
Still real in love with that album Fruit Bats released earlier this year, you guys.
This tune by The Staves is one of my very favorite of the year.
Michael Kiwanuka covering Ariana Grande? SURE.
Lucy Rose: still very lovely.
Local Natives covering Beyonce? Sure, yeah, okay.
Will likely never tire of this Conner Youngblood song, and this is an incredibly beautiful version.
Villagers is here to smash your heart. You’re welcome.
Holy hell, this new one from Julien Baker. Enjoy.
