-- Dave Grohl has teamed up with Rick Springfield to write a song for his forthcoming 'Sound City' documentary. Here's hoping it's a sequel to 'Jessie's Girl,' and that the Aussie hearthrob finally learned where he can find a woman like that. [triplem.com]

-- The Gaslight Anthem have covered Bon Iver's 'Skinny Love' for a special Record Store Day release. We're guessing it'll be harder and faster than the original, if only because slower and softer isn't really an option. [Consequence of Sound]

-- The wait is over, Interpol fans: Frontman Paul Banks is streaming his new solo album, 'Banks,' online right now. [Drowned in Sound]

-- New York duo Holy Ghost! are streaming a new track that may-or-may-not turn up on their next album -- either way, it doesn't really matter, because it's totally worth checking out. [Stereogum]

-- Tom Krell of How to Dress Well says melancholy informs both his debut album and its follow-up, 'Total Loss,' but the new one is perhaps a tinge more hopeful. "There's this head-above-water feeling," he says. "You have a relationship with loss that leads to the future rather than being forever stuck in the moment of that loss." [Spinner]

-- Sad news out of Memphis, where B.B. Cunningham Jr., a member of Jerry Lee Lewis' band, was shot dead on Sunday. The 70-year-old was still working as a security guard, which suggests he was a pretty hardcore dude. Then, he worked with Jerry Lee, so we already knew that. [Ultimate Classic Rock]

-- It looks like the Black Lips will make a cameo appearance in a new movie from Terrence Malick, the director behind such Oscar-nominated fare as 'The Thin Red Line' and 'The Tree of Life.' A couple of camera phone-shot clips of the band filming a scene have surfaced online, and they include footage of the film's stars Rooney Tara (playing guitar) and Ryan Gosling (hanging onstage).
