    On the first day of the month, we kicked off a 30-Day Song Challenge (plus one, for the extra day in May), to help us keep track of the days while we stayed home, and it looked as if we would need the help to keep one day from blurring into the next. Now, as the month ends, the days proved memorable in ways we hadn't imagined at the start. For those who joined us along the way and offered your own selections, thank you. Hope you enjoyed. You can listen to all 31 songs in one playlist here.

    Stephin Merritt, whose new album with The Magnetic Fields, Quickies, is out this month, spoke with Jarvis Cocker, of Pulp fame, for the Talkhouse Podcast in Brooklyn back in February. You can now hear their conversation here. "Two of my favorites," says host Elia Einhorn. "These are two of the greatest living songwriters.

    Devendra Banhart is on Jenny Eliscu's LSQ podcast. His new album, Ma, is "awesome," says Eliscu, "his best album in a minute, kind of a return to form and a reminder of all of the heart and soul in his music." Of their conversation, she says: "It was great to get to talk with my dear old friend about stuff we've never gotten to before. You don't always get to ask your friends such nerdy questions as I do in this convo ... I was so curious to know about how this incredibly interesting and unique artist ended up sounding the way he does." Hear what he had to say here.
