Miley Cyrus and Lily Allen have provoked outrage and awe in equal measure, but the singers have kick-started a fresh debate about women and their place in the modern world
Friday 04 October 2013
Miley Cyrus has dominated pop culture for the past month or two, with a ton of comment following in her wake. This week Sinead O'Connor sent the 20-year-old starlet an open letter, warning about the dangers of being prostituted by the music business. Kirsten Lieb writes for us today on the "sex-first positioning" of young female singers. But was Cyrus right to insist that she's the one in control?
End of the Road Festival 2013 review: Walkmen, David Byrne, St. Vincent and others at Larmer Tree Gardens, Dorset
Monday 02 September 2013
I think I’ve seen the performance of the weekend from New York’s Walkmen on Sunday night, amidst End of the Road’s beautiful West Country hills. Their singer Hamilton Leithauser croons their old song “The Rat” with righteous, Dylanesque venom at the heart of loud, lashing rock’n’roll. Hand in his pocket as if in a Vegas lounge, but thrusting himself forward with pugilistic attitude, Leithauser leads a band proudly pouring out passion.

Eighteen-year-old Archie Marshall has been steadily garnering acclaim under his stage name, King Krule, for his hazy, dark melange of sounds: a touch of new wave guitar, some synths, a hint of dubstep, a bassy vocal growl. His self-titled 2011 EP was a particular standout. Now comes his debut album, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, out on 24 August, the occasion of young Marshall's 19th birthday. The record's opening track, “Easy Easy”, is streaming now at youtu.be/9i35KOGBYBo – and it's a fine, spare effort.

Pharrell Williams (pictured) has already featured on the two big hits of the summer, Daft Punk's “Get Lucky” (you may have heard it once or twice) and Robin Thicke's “Blurred Lines”, but he is certainly not stopping there. Next up, he's offered production duties (and occasional vocals) on the new single from southern rapper 2 Chainz. “Fedz Watching” is the particularly catchy and infectious turn from the pair; find it at 2chainz.com. Pharrell is also on a new track from Azealia Banks. A radio rip of “ATM Jam” is streaming – for now – on Soundcloud at azealiainfo/azealia- banks-atm-jam-feat.
