What's that Called?, the website that tracks music in US commercials now has a UK website, so you can find out what that snappy track was in the car ad on both sides of the Atlantic.

Almost a Ghost is "a study in Beckology," giving synopses of every Beck tune, notes on live performances and often lyrics as well.

Being There is a new online magazine dedicated to "music and film culture for the literary minded." Since it is named for both one of my favorite films and albums, I am already a fan (the Coen brothers and Stephin Merritt features were more persuasive, though).

RealNetworks starts a lame blog attacking Apple (not the first time RealNetworks and lame have been in the same sentence).

The Washington Post is lukewarm about the new Drive-By Truckers disc, and especially Patterson Hood. "Hood's tales of woe start to feel like a cliche on the Truckers' sixth effort, 'The Dirty South,' which will reach stores next week. Not only is this 70-minute album bogged down by his predictable songwriting, it continues the southern rock band's trend toward ballads. Fortunately, the Truckers' other two singer-songwriters, Mike Cooley and Jason Isbell, make contributions that salvage this rig."

The London News Review takes on Real's anti-Apple blog.

The Tennessean profiles Superdrag frontman John Davis as he goes solo.

The Age profiles Clotilde Dusoulier, who writes the exemplary food blog, Chocolate and Zucchini.

The Daily Trojan visits record stores, big and small, in the Los Angeles area.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer profiles Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer and artist Michel Cartellone.

The Minneapolis City Pages explore the city's early local hip-hop scene.
