In less capable hands, "Re:generation Music Project" would have felt much more like a hugely expensive commercial (it's being sponsored by the Hundai Veloster and the Grammys). It isn't entirely clear why Hundai and the Grammys are so keen on the project, although you have to assume they're at least vaguely sinister. But it's a testament to the artistry of filmmaker Amir Bar-Lev (who previously directed "The Tillman Story" and "My Kid Could Paint That") and the soundness of the concept that the movie doesn't come across as some elongated, mega-budgeted ad for a sportier version of the car you probably lost your virginity in.

A few bits of music/movie news to bring you into the weekend. First off, as we reported last year, The National have recorded a brand new song for the solid Tom McCarthy directed dramedy "Win Win" starring Paul Giamatti and Amy Ryan. The film goes into wider release this weekend and Prefix have uncovered the video for the tune, "Think You Can Wait." It's a mashup of clips, behind-the-scenes footage and band rockin' out so it gets the job done. Totally anecdotal, but "Win Win" got hearty applause from the audience we saw it with, so might be worth your $10 this weekend.

Updated: The NME was incorrect and misquoted Mark Ronson. Theodore Shapiro is providing the original score for director Jason Winer’s “Arthur.” Ronson will contribute several new songs to the film with vocals by Daniel Merriweather. The film will also feature songs written and performed by Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie. With that in mind, disregard certain parts of the story below.
