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:

Check out the trailer for Memphis, a film starring Willis Earl Beal

Watch Cloud Nothings frontman Dylan Baldi perform a new song on an acoustic guitar

YouTube Audio Stream: Death Grips – Birds

Check out Nirvana’s original contract with Sub Pop Records

Download the instrumental mixes of tracks from Italians Do It Better’s compilation mix After Dark 2

YouTube Audio Stream: Matt Berninger (of The National) – I’ll See You in My Dreams

Music Video: Spiritualized – I Am What I Am

Once you’re done with all that, there’s a whole bunch of free downloads and equally important audio streams to investigate as part of today’s Pick Your Poison. You’re not going to want to miss delightful tracks from Cameron McGill, Druid Cloak, Gladiola, Jacuzzi Boys, Le1f, Tokyo Hands and Wires in the Walls. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream new songs from Chelsea Wolfe, Holy Ghost!, Jonathan Rado (of Foxygen), RAC (ft. Kele of Bloc Party and MNDR), School of Night (Darby Cicci of The Antlers), and Young Galaxy.
