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:

Led Zeppelin will release remastered editions of their first three albums with bonus tracks

Watch Twin Shadow play at SXSW from a dumpster

Watch Sky Ferreira perform “I Blame Myself” on Kimmel

Music Video: Franz Ferdinand – Fresh Strawberries

Watch Beck perform “Waking Light” on the Tonight Show

Watch Iggy Pop and New Order perform “Love Will Tear Us Apart”

Watch Arcade Fire cover Stevie Wonder’s “Uptown (Everything’s Alright)” live in concert

Watch Chvrches cover Lorde’s “Team”

Music Video: Banks – Brain

Watch Warpaint perform “Love Is To Die” on Conan

Once you’re done with that set of distractions, let me offer up another set via some song downloads and streams. Don’t miss tracks from Designer Drugs, DWNTWN, Golden Retriever, Mustard Pimp, Peelander Z, Sleep Sleep, They Might Be Giants and We Are Shining. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream cuts from Bird to Beast, Say Lou Lou, The Snow, Tame Impala, Vanaprasta and Loston’s remix of Banks’ “Waiting Game.”
