Matthew E White at Glastonbury 2013 – review

Glastonbury's final day starts with blazing sun, but cloud thankfully emerges along with a cooling breeze - good conditions in which to see Matthew E White on the West Holts stage.

The Rolling Stones at Glastonbury 2013 – review

It starts about two hours before The Rolling Stones come onstage - hordes of people, normally milling around merrily, are now purposefully heading towards the Pyramid Stage. By the time Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie appear, the crowd has swelled to fill the entire field - backs to the food stalls and all.

Elvis Costello at Glastonbury 2013 – review

What with the sun blazing dangerously down on Worthy Farm, everyone seems to be in a blissful mood at Glastonbury this afternoon. Extraneous, and in some cases, all clothing layers have been shed, and the Southwest's supply of UV facepaints has been decimated.

Melody’s Echo Chamber at Glastonbury 2013 – review

Stunning weather today (Saturday) at Glastonbury - though due to the lack of shade there are now thousands of people walking round with horrific sunburn, dazed from a combination of heat and cheap cider.

Portishead at Glastonbury 2013 – review

Robyn Hitchcock & The Venus 3 at Glastonbury 2013 – review

At 2011's Glastonbury, Robyn Hitchcock performed all of Captain Beefheart's Clear Spot record - this year the former Soft Boy is toeing the line a little more, and appearing with his American supergroup of a backing band, The Venus 3.

The Best Films Of 2013: Halftime Report

Taking my cue from John's round-up of the best albums of 2013 so far, I thought I'd compile a similar list of the best films released between the start of January and the end of June this year.

Goat at Glastonbury 2013 – review

So music at Glastonbury begins today, after Thursday's rain-soaked warm-up. Thankfully the sun is out, the mud is mostly gone, and the relieved party atmosphere is perfect for Goat at the West Holts Stage.

Before Midnight

Before Midnight is the third in Richard Linklater’s intermittent catch-ups with Jesse and Celine, characters played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy who the filmmaker first introduced in 1995’s Before Sunrise.

New Order plan to release EP before the end of the year

New Order are planning to release an EP before the end of the year. The band's keyboard player Gillian Gilbert says the five-piece have been writing and will record the tracks in September "once the kids have all gone back to school". To speed up the writing process, the band – Gilbert, along with Bernard Sumner, her husband Stephen Morris, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman – have decided to release the EP rather than wait until they have enough material for a full album
