The San Bernardino Sun examines the connection between Cameron Crowe's new film, Elizabethtown, and music.

"It was always meant to be a tribute to the American singer-songwriters working now, because there are so many great ones and they don't get played," Crowe explains. "I mean, Internet radio, which is basically a guy with his iTunes putting it over the computer, is the only way you're going to get true eclectic music programmed. So I just wanted to use the movie to play some of these great people like Patty Griffin and Ryan Adams."

Singer-songwriter Laura Veirs talks to Scotland on Sunday.

"I see myself as taking influences from country and folk players of the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, but also the punk rockers of the late Eighties and early Nineties," she says. "The riot girl movement is in there as well."

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel sings the blues for the old South, and gets a quote from Drive-By Trucker Patterson Hood:

"I'm proud of my Southern accent," Hood said. "It serves me well. I'm not in a line of work where I'm not going to get a promotion because of it.

"We were in Norway three days ago, and it's like we're bringing stories and tales from this exotic land called the South. It's pretty funny, you know? Maybe if I worked in a bank, it might be different, but they're not going to let me work in a bank to start with."

The Arctic Monkeys talk to Scotland on Sunday.

"I don't think we realise how big we are, to be honest. We're just four blokes playing some music together, but every night there seems to be more and more people out there. It's kind of like there's this storm going on around us and we're at the eye of it."

Singer-songwriter Michael Penn talks to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"For me, Bill Hicks was my Dylan," he sighs. "Being at Largo and seeing him perform, it was like finally there's some truth coming out on the stage! It was revelatory."

Roller derby is back (and going strong).
