It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another weekly dip into the pool of music news, interviews and videos that I like to call This Week In Music! Yes, in addition to the normal Pick Your Poison mp3s and Soundcloud streams, I like to toss out links to a bunch of other music-related content that I’ve found interesting or worthwhile over the course of the week. I encourage you to check some, if not all of these things out, particularly if you’re looking to waste some time. There’s plenty to see, read and hear:

Once you’re done with those distractions, there’s a whole bunch of mp3 downloads for you to enjoy and distract you further should you like. In the set today, I’m pleased to recommend tracks from The Anatomy of Frank, The Blank Tapes, Dawn of Midi, Fur Trade, Moska and The Petticoat Tearoom.
