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:

In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream tracks from Billie Joe Armstrong (of Green Day) with Norah Jones, Cut Copy, CYMBALS, Four Tet and White Lung.
