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.

Here’s Julien Baker covering The Boss. YES.

Very much stuck on this Camp Cope tune.

Tyler Lyle with a small orchestra? Sure, yeah, I’d like to hear that.

Really dig this stripped down version of the title track from Bear’s Den’s new album.

Here’s what I’ve been listening to lately (click here to subscribe). Enjoy!

We have the tunes.

‘See’- Restorations
I’ll shoot you straight: this is one of the best songs I’ve heard this year. (Thanks, Paul.)

‘Laid Low’- Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster
Got a feeling this debut album from Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster is going to be very special. This…this is a tune.

‘Done’- Camp Cope
Why yes, I did spend most of the day listening to the latest album from Camp Cope thanks to a rec from my friends over at Wake The Deaf. I may do it again tomorrow.

‘Memories’- The Midnight
You very likely need a soundtrack for these (hopefully) last few weeks of summer. The Midnight’s new album is perfect for that, so you should get it in your ears.

‘Spray Paint’- Donovan Woods
You know the rule: if Donovan Woods posts a track, it gets posted here.

‘The Spoils’- Massive Attack feat. Hope Sandoval
All. About. This. Tune. Right. Now. (Thanks, Tyler.)

‘Never Going Home’- Hazel English
This song is a perfectly hazy late-summer tune, yes it is. Real excited for her debut EP in October.

‘Seven Words’- Weyes Blood
Let’s get summertime sad, you guys. (This is so good, mannnnn.)

‘Golden Age’- Chris Staples
Just wanna let you know that the album Chris Staples is releasing next week is great and you will love it very much. This is the title track, and it’s wonderful.

You guys, Valley Queen is gonna be so huge.

Feel like we should all listen to more Covenhoven.

This Blind Pilot tune is gonna be a large part of the soundtrack to my life this fall.

You know this already, but Joan Shelley is the most lovely.

Oh. Oh wow. This is great. Just Tyler Lyle singing a verse from ‘Young Men’ a capella.

Basically just wanna watch Phil Cook and his band play all damn day.

You may find this hard to believe, but Shakey Graves is still fucking awesome. Enjoy.

Wrote a bunch of words about the records I liked most in July for my friends over at Vinyl Me, Please. Another good month in a real good year.

Added to the list of those who must cover all of the songs: Lapsley.

John Prine and Sturgill Simpson. Yes.

Yep, so this Ryan Adams song still holds up even though I’ve heard it right around 1000 times.

Still all in on Pinegrove, you guys.

This Lucy Dacus Tiny Desk Concert is the best way you can spend your next 11 minutes.

Been listening to this William Tyler tune a whole lot as this summer has worn on. Enjoy.

It feels like it’s been a long time. It’s been a long time, right?

‘My Man’- Valley Queen
Holy crap, you guys. This band is going to be huge.

‘Harmless’- Amanda Shires
Well, this is altogether lovely.

‘Hardcore’- Reignwolf
I am very, very, very much looking forward to the (long awaited) debut album from Reignwolf. Very much.

‘It’s Time’- Nick Waterhouse
Really like the idea of having new Nick Waterhouse songs in our lives.

‘Sure Is Nice’- Natural Child
I want to listen to this over and over and sip a beverage in the shade.

‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’- Bear’s Den
Why yes, I will use this to exclusively soundtrack a drive sometime over the remaining part of summer.

‘Irene’- Courtney Marie Andrews
You guys: you are going to love this upcoming album from Courtney Marie Andrews. Promise.

Quickly moving up the list of my favorite songs of 2016: this one.

Oh hey, here’s Bear’s Den covering Drake.

And now, Lucy Dacus playing a lovely tune by a pool.

Jim James and Andrew Bird. Together. Yes, I will watch that.

A band we should all probably get into now: Valley Queen.

Went ahead and combined the 4 summer mixes I’ve made into one big playlist on Spotify (subscribe here). Enjoy!

Another week, another batch of tunes you need to hear.

‘Biloxi’- Hiss Golden Messenger
Real talk: the record Hiss Golden Messenger is putting out on October 7th is the record I’m most looking forward to in the second half of 2016. M.C. Taylor is the most underrated songwriter in the business today.

‘Punks In A Disco Bar’- Beach Slang
This song makes me want to do something brash. I love it.

‘Leadlight’- Julia Jacklin
Yep, this is real, real nice and I like it very much.

‘A Burning Soul’- Owen
Owen’s new record comes out in a few weeks and he/they are now 3 for 3 on singles so yeah, I’d say I’m excited to hear the whole thing.
