Welcome to another week of links! This week I spent some time breaking out the email into sections for each medium. Art, videos, music, and plain old-fashioned links get their own sections so you know what you're getting before you click. Enjoy!
Animal Crossing New Horizons
If you're looking for great work-from-home music, the background music from the brand new Animal Crossing game is A+ stuff.
LOVETHEISM - Haru Nemuri
Here's something totally different. Haru Nemuri is a pop artist from Japan who I just got turned onto last year and he new EP is really good. It's an EP, but it's 7 tracks long, and it's well worth your time even if you don't understand any of the lyrics.
Oasis Nocturno - TOKiMONSTA
Another deviation from my normal music recommendations, TOKiMONSTA just released a solid, energetic, and dark record that I'm more addicted to than I expected a week ago.

Bureaucracy, equipment shortages, an unwillingness to share, and failed leadership doomed the American response to COVID-19.
