Face to watch: Angel haze

Hot on the heels of Azealia Banks comes this equally superlative US female rapper who provides emotional and rhythmic charge in equal measure. See the surreal video for her new single "New York" here: bit.ly/QtvOIS

Music: Yeasayer

Comedy: Matt Okine/Ronny Chieng

These two rising Aussie-based stand-ups should provide compensatory chortles for Londoners not making the schlep to the Edinburgh Festival. Tomorrow to 25 August, sohotheatre.com
