Last month Beck released " Defriended ," the first of what he said were two non-album singles he planned to put out this summer. Now, following a performance Tuesday at the Days Off festival in Paris, the L.A.-based artist has revealed the second, "I Won't Be Long," which you can hear below. Like "Defriended," the new tune -- to be issued next week on 12-inch vinyl with a nearly 15-minute-long remix on the B-side -- finds Beck in the trippy psych-folk mode we know from records like 1998's "Mutations" and 2006's "The Information"; it's full of swirling guitars and rides a heavy, head-nodding beat.

Reporting from Toronto — By the end of the first weekend of last year's Toronto International Film Festival, a trio of movies — "The King's Speech," "127 Hours" and "Black Swan" — had emerged as clear front-runners for the coming Oscar season. This year? Not so much. As the weekend draws to a close, no prototypical awards title has risen above the fray. Instead, it's lighter fare such as Jennifer Westfeldt's marital comedy "Friends With Kids" and Lasse Hallström's quirky satire "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" that are generating the most attention, with the latter selling to CBS Films for about $4 million on Sunday afternoon.

The story behind the hard-core country music at the center of "Crazy Heart," the buzzed-about new film for which Jeff Bridges is winning accolades for his portrayal of singer Bad Blake, would make a movie every bit as poignant as writer-director Scott Cooper's tale of a down-but-not-entirely-out musician in desperate need of redemption. The real-life tale would be a buddy movie about the friendship between two musicians whose lives charted divergent paths, one leading to multimillion-selling albums and multiple Grammy Awards, the other hewing closer to the hardscrabble life on the outskirts of fame as portrayed in "Crazy Heart."

RE Scott Gold's piece on singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham ["Raw and Genuine," March 30]: When I saw Bingham on a Cayamo cruise, I was riveted. I have never seen such an original since I saw Joe Ely play Soap Creek Saloon in 1978 for two bucks. No self-respecting Texan would think anything but that this is the real thing. He's as original and good a songwriter as has come along in a long time. Tell him to come back to Austin -- he got rained out at SXSW and a bunch of us were bummed! Lin Sutherland Austin, Texas

Mt. Oscar: To scale the heights of the Oscars -- to reach the top of that golden O -- wrap yourself in raves and pack lots of buzz. This week's altitude readings are by Rachel Abramowitz, Patrick Kevin Day, John Horn, Elena Howe, Susan King and Gina McIntyre. THE GAME CHANGER: That phrase has been tossed around so much as to make it all but impossible for "Avatar" to live up to. Until it screened. Now it seems the game has indeed been changed. BAD = GOOD: The academy loves singers with substance abuse issues.
