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:

Hear the new Pearl Jam single “Mind Your Manners”

Watch Eleanor Friedberger perform her song “Stare at the Sun” on “Fallon”

Music Video: Yo La Tengo – Ohm

Jay-Z performed his song “Picasso Baby” at Pace Gallery in NYC for 6 hours

Watch a long lost promo clip of Nirvana promoting their album In Utero in 1993

Music Video: Julia Holter – In the Green Wild

Watch Rhye perform “The Fall” on “Kimmel”

Fred Armisen as “Ricky Chism” promotes the new Queens of the Stone Age record on USB drive in hilarious fashion

Stream a new song from King Krule called “Easy Easy”
