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:

YouTube Audio Stream: Screaming Females – Ripe

Watch the trailer for Song One, which includes new music from Jenny Lewis & Johnathan Rice

Watch Future Islands’ guest appearance on “Comedy Bang! Bang!”

Watch an actual meteor fly past while Modest Mouse performs “Dark Center of the Universe”

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

In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream cuts from Ex-Cult, George Maple, The Prettiots, TALA, Until the Ribbon Breaks (ft. Run the Jewels), Wonderful Humans (covering…Taylor Swift?!) and Years & Years.
