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 Arcade Fire’s live session on Triple J Radio in Australia

Music Video: Chromeo – Come Alive (ft. Toro y Moi)

An attempt to rename the Paul’s Boutique street corner as “Beastie Boys Square” has been rejected

Stream A Place That Doesn’t Exist, a new EP from Willis Earl Beal

Watch Lorde cover James Blake’s “Retrograde” live in concert

Watch Class of 2014 artist FKA twigs perform “Hide” in a cave

YouTube Audio Stream: Wye Oak – The Tower

Watch Katy B cover Arctic Monkeys’ “One for the Road” live on BBC Radio 1

Listen to The National’s Matt Berninger on Bret Easton Ellis’ podcast

Watch St. Vincent’s Annie Clark demonstrate how to do a “rainbow kick” in soccer

Once you’re done with that set of distractions, let me offer up another set via some song downloads and streams.
