Laggies Ben Gibbard
A little bit of related Sundance music news rolling in this afternoon. Two well-known modern musicians—one an indie-rocker, the other a now-seminal hip-hop artist—are plying their trades to some new films making their debut in Utah later this January. First up is Death Cab For Cutie frontman and ex-Mr. Zooey Deschanel, Ben Gibbard. The singer/songwriter's first foray into solo film scoring was for the 2006 documentary "Kurt Cobain About A Son" and now he's dipping his toe in the waters once more for Lynn Shelton's "Laggies."

Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock)
It's been just over a year since the sad and tragic passing of Beastie Boys' member Adam Yauch (aka MCA), and it looks like the rest of his bandmates are preparing to get creative again. Earlier today, Rolling Stone revealed their interview Mike D (aka Michael Diamond) talking about his recent experience scoring the Paris Fashion Week presentation of Kenzo's 2014 Spring/Summer Collection (a gig he took at the insistence of Spike Jonze). Meanwhile, Ad-Rock (aka Adam Horovitz) scored a short documentary for the New York Times last fall, but is now ready to see if he can drop dialogue as hot as he can drop some rhymes.
