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 Nicolas Jaar’s new subscription-based record label, plus stream/download the first 11 minutes of the debut album from his new band Darkside

Watch a 13.5 minute mini documentary about the visuals for the new Nine Inch Nails tour

Watch Phoenix perform an acoustic version of their song “Entertainment” at the Palace of Versailles

Stream a new song from Paul McCartney, appropriately titled “New”

Check out the initial artist lineup for CMJ 2013

Watch Franz Ferdinand cover Grimes’ “Oblivion” in an acoustic radio session

Check out a Daft Punk curated playlist on Spotify

YouTube Audio Stream: Glasser – Shape

Music Video: TV on the Radio – Million Miles

Music Video: The National – Graceless
