Tributes to Warren Zevon started coming well before the singer-songwriter died of cancer in September, with Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen working his songs into their concert repertoires. Now those artists have contributed to an official Zevon tribute album, with live versions of Dylan performing the 1995 song "Mutineer" and Springsteen doing the sardonic 2002 song "My Ride's Here" anchoring the collection, due in the fall from Artemis Records.

Even though Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice are one of L.A. indie rock's most doe-eyed couples, their debut album together as Jenny & Johnny emerged from a breakup. They'd split with one of their favorite musicians — Bob Dylan. "We were at this jam session in Laurel Canyon with our friend, [singer] Farmer Dave Scher," Rice said. "We'd played like three Bob Dylan covers, and Dave put down his guitar and said, 'I just can't do this Dylan Fantasy Camp anymore.'" Lewis and Rice each built their solo careers around the sprawling, metaphor-heavy songwriting style that Dylan turned into shorthand for "serious folk artist.

Is it time to admit that Rilo Kiley is never, ever getting back together? Sure seems that way.

The stereotypical Sundance movie is thought of as something capital-Q quirky, typically a story of family dysfunction or coming-of-age. This year's festival, across its numerous sections, featured a newfound immersion in genre storytelling that pushed the films to places that were familiar but with unexpected and most welcome twists. Gareth Evans' "The Raid 2," for instance, does for the blood-soaked Asian action film what "The Dark Knight" did for the superhero film, injecting it with a seriousness, a depth of characterization and a scope of storytelling that raises it to a new level of legitimacy.
