Indie film folk are just so DIY. Not only does actor GUY PEARCE (”Memento”, ”L.A. Confidential”) star in Lions Gate’s dark romance ”A Slipping Down Life” but he also sings the soundtrack. ITUNES.COM

If you’ve ever experienced rapper JEAN GRAE’s slick, heart-wrenching confessionals and wondered why you don’t get to hear her more often, let her tell it on ”Don’t Rush Me.” BABYGRANDE.COM/EXCLUSIVE.JSP

There is no joy in MUDVILLE, who follow faithfully in the gloomy footsteps of trip-hop pioneers Portishead. But Marilyn Carino’s quirky wall on ”Hero of the World” is plenty spirited nonetheless. MUDVILLEMUSIC.COM

An acoustic revamp of Ludacris’ ”What’s Your Fantasy?” by Dismemberment Plan’s TRAVIS MORRISON is as frenetic as the original. Still, we doubt it’ll get as much play in the strip clubs. TRAVISMORRISON.COM
