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:

Stream AlunaGeorge’s debut album Body Music via Soundcloud

Watch the 14-minute documentary on The Postal Service called “Some Idealistic Future”

Watch a second official music video for Pixies’ “Bagboy”

Watch a 60-second teaser for the new Cults album Static

Watch Franz Ferdinand’s music video for “Love Illumination”

Music Video: Washed Out – Don’t Give Up

Stream Mac DeMarco’s Live at Russian Recording live cassette

Music Video: Fiona Apple – Hot Knife

Once you’re done looking over those many distractions above, there’s still an edition of Pick Your Poison to keep you flush with new music. Enjoy tracks from Algernon Doll, Bad Cop, Bonnie Whitmore, Briar Rabbit, Dinosaur Feathers, Giga Herbs, Saint Motel and Sunset Graves.
