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:

Faber will publish Ian Curtis’ lyrics and notebooks

YouTube Audio Stream: Justin Timberlake – TKO

Music Video: Foxygen – We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic

Watch Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q perform “Collard Greens” on “Arsenio”

YouTube Audio Stream: The Killers – Shot At Night (Prod. by M83)

YouTube Audio Stream: Best Coast – I Don’t Know How

Music Video: MGMT – Cool Song No. 2

YouTube Audio Stream: Beck – Gimme

Music Video: Daft Punk – Lose Yourself to Dance

YouTube Audio Stream: Grizzly Bear – Will Calls (Marfa Demo)
