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.

How about a brand new one and a favorite from his latest release from Tyler Lyle to start things off? Cool.

I will never tire of Josh Ritter and his songs.

Not real, but I would obviously buy this/request it if I ever found myself in a Waffle House.

Monica from Phox covering…Shania Twain? SURE, let’s do that.

Very much into Margaret Glaspy.

Also super into the new Kevin Morby album, you guys.

Threw together a little mix last Friday morning full of stuff I think is sounding best now that everything’s greening up and we’re able to roll our windows down again. Enjoy!

The tremendous new album from Fort Frances comes out this Friday, but you can hear it right now by clicking here. You should do that.

Still firmly on the Lucy Dacus Bandwagon, you guys.

Really enjoying this latest Hayes Carll album. It’s sad in a real deep, affecting way, which is, you know, what does it for me.

This Damien Jurado session is rather wonderful, yes.

Man, I love this Jason Isbell song so damn much.

Here’s what I’ve been listening to so far this month. Enjoy.

Let’s talk about tunes.

‘Fill In The Blank’- Car Seat Headrest
This is the first time I ‘get’ the hype around Car Seat Headrest. This song is phenomenal.

‘WAAAVES’ (Kanye West cover)- JMR
Really love this cover of one of two songs I really like from that Kanye album.

‘Pretty Fair Miss’- Daniel Martin Moore
I just love Daniel Martin Moore’s voice so much, you guys.

‘Playing With Fire’- Nick Leng
Pretty sure Nick Leng knows only how to make delightful music/sounds.

‘One More Night’- Michael Kiwanuka
Very much about everything from this new Michael Kiwanuka album so far.

Let’s talk about the important things first: you need to go listen to the new albums from Sturgill Simpson (likely the most exciting record I’ve heard this year) and Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop (one of the most lovely records I’ve heard this year). And then listen again. And again.

And now, here’s Star Parks playing one of my favorite songs of 2016.

Still real stuck on Pinegrove, you guys.

Mothers playing the Tiny Desk? Yes, please.

It’s spring. This Covenhoven song is still perfect.

That Daughter album that came out in January? It’s still really damn good.

Howdy. Here are some tunes I think you should listen to.

‘Near You’- Adeline Hotel
Short, sweet and altogether great. Very large fan of the whole classic rock vibe here.

‘It’s A Job’- Wolfie’s Just Fine
I still am trying to wrap my mind around the fact that this is a song sung by Taco from The League. It is so fantastic.

‘Lost Dreamers’- Mutual Benefit
Well, this is tremendously lovely.

‘Ballad of Big Nothing’ (Elliott Smith cover)- Julien Baker
We need to start a new petition to have Julien Baker cover all of the songs.

‘Eye of a Hurricane’- Kyle Craft
Let’s get a little unhinged and kinda weird, you guys.

‘Vertebrae’- Sam Moss
That moment when the slow burn opening gives way to those slow, full strums? That’s real nice.

‘Plucky’- Morly
Obviously always all about minimalist pop songs. You know that, duh.

Daniel Martin Moore and his band playing one of my favorite songs from 2015. Still tremendously lovely.

Lucy Dacus in a cemetery playing one of my favorite songs from one of the best albums of 2016? Yes, please.

Holy hell, this Le Wrens song/video.

And now, Beirut in a Paris apartment in 2009. Damn.

First Monday Links of a new month, so here’s what I was listening to in March. Enjoy.

That time of the week again.

‘Black Man In A White World’- Michael Kiwanuka
God, it’s so nice to have Michael Kiwanuka back releasing music.

‘It’ll Work Itself Out’- Donovan Woods
Ol’ Donny Woods, just recording songs on the fly in dressing rooms. A real good song. A great song, actually.

‘Goodness Pt. 1’- The Hotelier
This one, all day.

‘studio 6’- Matt Maltese
Good lord, this is gorgeous.

‘Shivers’- JMR
I’ve been waiting a very long time for the debut EP from JMR. It doesn’t disappoint. At all.

‘Love As A Weapon’- Little Scream
My fiance demanded I listen to this yesterday when she got home. It’s a middle of summer, strut around the house jam. She is, quite obviously, a keeper. (Also, quite the change from the Little Scream of the past, which is fun.)
