Monday Links

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.

Pinegrove in a Chapel? Yes, please.

I’ve been real stuck on this Richard Edwards tune the last few days.

This Julie Byrne tune is one of my favorites of 2017.

This one from Middle Kids, too.

Very excited to hear the Nadia Reid album that comes out next month.

The new Strand of Oaks album is really great, you guys.

Still really love this Salt Cathedral song. Especially this version of it.

Let’s end with a mix I made a few weeks back that I never shared here but is full of stuff I think you might like. Check it out here on Spotify, if you’d like. Enjoy.

These are long, heavy days. Let’s escape into a few tunes.

“Doing It Right”- Middle Kids
This new Middle Kids EP is the best thing I’ve heard this year. This track is the outlier in terms of sound, but I love the Fiona Apple-ishness.

“Next Time”- Laura Marling
I might be all-in on this new Laura Marling album, you guys.

“High Tops”- Del Water Gap
I’ve listened to this a socially inappropriate number of times the last week or so.

“A Better Sun”- Sorority Noise
The Sorority Noise album that comes out next month is going to scratch the same itch that The Hotelier album scratched last year. I can’t freaking wait.

“Chosen”- Rose Cousins
Holy crap. This is a tune.

“Can I Sit Next To You”- Spoon
Sure, the video is weird, but this is a funky little jam.

Good tunes, just for you.

“Tired As Fuck”- The Staves
This rather perfectly describes our new normal.

“Stars Align”- Valley Queen
Still one of my picks as an artist that seems primed to be a household name by the end of the year.

“Photograph”- Cataldo
I am very happy Cataldo is back.

“All Night Sedans”- Leif Vollebekk
Yes. Yes this is very good.

“You’re Not Alone”- The Wooden Sky
Really can’t wait for this new record from The Wooden Sky, you guys.

A few weeks after the fact, but I wrote about the best stuff from January for my friends over at Vinyl Me, Please.

(Not to spoil the surprise, but this Julien Baker tune is one of the things I wrote about for VMP.)

As I tell you all the time, the Leif Vollebekk album coming out at the end of this month is so damn good, you guys.

Hit play. Have fun for 20 minutes.

Update: Joan Shelley is still lovely.

Still very much love Pinegrove, you guys.

Yes, this song still makes me want to run through a brick wall.

Here’s a mix of old tunes that got me through the real shit part of winter. Maybe they’ll hit the spot for you, too. Enjoy.

I don’t wanna talk about anything but tunes right now.

“Big Picture”- London Grammar
And just like that, we have our first perfect pop tune of 2017.

“Ran”- Future Islands
Yep, I’ll buy this all day.

“Waitin’ on Something”- Red Porch Kid
This one goes down real smooth.

“The Meetings of the Waters”- Fionn Regan
Pretty lost in this right now, you guys.

“Heavy Steps”- Wilsen
A beautiful, perfectly anxious for these overwhelmingly anxious times.

“Gas Station Rose”- Sean Rowe
Beautiful, this one.

Alright, let’s do this.

“Never Start”- Middle Kids
Uh oh, I have a new favorite song.

“No Halo”- Sorority Noise
Yep, this will probably be the thing that scratches the same itch that The Hotelier scratched last year. The chorus makes me want to run through a brick wall.

“Footscray Station”- Camp Cope
We didn’t talk enough last year about how much Camp Cope rules. Let’s try to remedy that in 2017.

“Doomsday”- Ryan Adams
This new Ryan Adams album is the best thing he’s made in a good long while. Be excited.

“On + Off”- Maggie Rogers
This is 100% a jam.

“Hellhound in the House”- Hip Hatchet
You know exactly who this is about.

“Oslo”- Anna of the North
This, too, is 100% a jam.

“Minneapolis”- Vagabon
The record Vagabon is putting out next month is one I am VERY excited to hear.

Just gonna leave these all here for you to start this, the first Monday Links of 2017.

Julia Jacklin covering The Strokes? Yes, please.

Yep, this is still one of my favorite songs of 2016.

This one, too.

Angel Olsen in a church is as good as you’d think.

Will very likely never tire of this Fruit Bats song.

It’s the dead of winter, which means it’s time to listen to Julien Baker.

Always kinda wondered what this song would sound like as a solo effort instead of a duet. Spoiler: still a great song.

I’ll leave you with this: a playlist of stuff I’ve been listening to lately aka the best stuff I’ve heard in 2017. You can follow/subscribe to it by clicking here. Enjoy.
