Emily Pirie reviews one of the many Two Door Cinema Club singles that arrived in anticipation of their latest album.
William Harrop reviews Interpol’s latest EP.
Barnett’s new single is emblematic of the same internalised paranoia that characterised her last awesome album: Tell Me How You Really Feel.

In anticipation of their upcoming album Father of the Bride, Vampire Weekend played ‘Three Little London Shows’, and my friend and I were two of 800 lucky people who waited in London’s Islington Assembly Hall to see one of indie music’s most influential bands.
