NEW RELEASES: Paste will point you to Bully, Ben Folds, Rufus Wainwright and more.

BILL'S INDIE BASEMENT has Protomartyr, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Beach Fossils, and more.

CYNTHIA WEIL, who with her writing partner and husband, Barry Mann, formed one of the most potent songwriting teams of the 1960s and beyond, churning out enduring hits like the Drifters’ “On Broadway” and the Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’,” signature tunes of the baby boomer era, died on Thursday at her home in Beverly Hills, Calif. She was 82. Many more of the Mann/Weilits are cataloged at Stereogum.  My favorites include the Ronettes’ “Walking In The Rain,”The Monkees' "Love is Only Sleeping," and the Mama cass solo jam “Make Your Own Kind Of Music,” but there are so, so many from which to choose.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse swings to the top of the chart with 120.5MM, which the tracking gurus didn't see coming, but shouldn't be surprising to those who were surprised by 2018's Into the Spider-Verse, a film which has only grown an audience in the years since.  The Little Mermaid places with 40.6MM on a 57 percent drop (which isn't bad, but this films problem are in overseas markets).  The Boogeyman shows with 12.3MM.  Notably, Fast X is already in the fifth slot 9.2MM and will probably be over taken in total earnings by Spidey this very week (Fast X, unlike the Mermaid and probably even Spidey, has the foreign markets disproportionately boositing its global total).
