I’m really starting to enjoy Thursdays, primarily thanks to the opportunity to put together a week’s worth of exciting music things on the internet that I’ve stumbled upon and loved. It’s a fun process, and basically a week in review. Come to think of it, that’s a much better name for it than what I’ve been calling it previously: Link Dump. That name just sounds trashy, perhaps because it has the word “dump” in it. So instead I’m going to start calling it This Week In Music…or should it be This Week In Awesome Music? Whatever, I like the articles, videos and other bric-a-brac that are below, followed by your typical set of mp3s and Soundcloud streams in Pick Your Poison. Please observe and listen to all this content. It comes with my seal of approval.
