It’s Thursday, and like last week, I’m going to test out something new and take you beyond the downloads and audio streams below. This provides me the chance to share a cool video, interesting interview or a fun game you might enjoy. Let me know if you like it, and I’ll keep doing it. Anyways, here’s a few choice items I’ve uncovered and thoroughly enjoyed in the last few days:

Video of Joanna Newsom covering Sandy Denny’s “The North Star Grassman and the Ravens”
Jay-Z to serve as Executive Producer and will perform songs on The Great Gatsby soundtrack
Video for AlunaGeorge’s new single “Attracting Flies”
NME interview with Trent Reznor on the return of Nine Inch Nails
Watch The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne in an absurdly weird Virgin Mobile commercial
Help and support Benjamin Curtis of School of Seven Bells as he battles T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma
Watch the new Foals video for “Late Night” (NSFW)

Okay, now let’s talk about today’s Pick Your Poison. I’m happy to recommend tracks from Black Manila, Boy + Kite, Camera, Mother Falcon, My Gold Mask, Navy Skies, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding and Stygian Stride.
