Detroit music's latest few minutes in the international spotlight comes courtesy of the Sundance Channel this weekend.

Underground favorites such as Lord Scrummage, Deastro, Flint Eastwood, the Ivy League Crew, Richie Wholfeil and the Wolfman Band are among the artists featured in "New American Noise," a six-part documentary series by Nokia Music and Somesuch & Co. that premieres at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18 that will showcase the cutting-edge scenes in six cities -- also including New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Portland and Atlanta.

The "Lords of Detroit" segment, helmed by British director Bob Harlow, drops in on locales such as Lo & Behold Records and Books and the Painted Lady in Hamtramck, the Old Miami and Nathan's Deli in Detroit, North End Studios as well as a house party in the city. Harlow uses six songs by Lord Scrummage as well as one each by Deastro and Flint Eastwood.

Trailers for the show can be found at www.EW.com, while a portion of the Portland segment, "Electric Noise," is featured at www.pastemagazine.com.
