By any critical measure, the NME’s annual tour package of four thrusting young acts broadcasting their sound to the nation has once again chosen well from a pool of artists who are unheard-of, just-rising or deserving of a step-up now their careers are well the way.

‘Fame can make you big-headed and add too much swagger’

Charity proves to be a running theme tonight - Paul Weller not only headlines for the second year running in aid of the homeless, but gives a leg-up to a younger acolyte. The Modfather ventures on stage early to join Miles Kane, a Mini-me to the veteran artist with his own feather cut and sharp threads.

Three years ago they were playing gigs in the upstairs rooms of student pubs in Leeds. Today they wake up as the next big thing in British pop. Such are the whims of the Mercury Prize.

I'd love to see the shooting schedule for the Apprentice second unit crew. After eight series, the rhetorical flourishes in the programme have become so predictable now that you feel they could film all the nuts and bolts with which the narrative is held together in a single busy day. So 10.00 to 10.30 would be spent on Karen Head Shakes and another half an hour after that on Nick's Wincing and Brow Furrowing.

For the vinyl obsessive, camping outside one of the UK’s remaining independent record shops, today is the equivalent of Stella McCartney launching a limited edition high-street collection for fashion bargain-hunters.

Regrettably, the more intriguing acoustic explorations of 2009's The Spinning Top appear to have been but a momentary aberration for Graham Coxon, as A+E finds him reverting to the lo-fi strategies of earlier solo outings.

This loose supergroup assembled by "fourth Beastie Boy" Mario Caldato Jnr in aid of fair trade/youth development charity Bottletop combines Brazilian musicians with Brits such as Tim Burgess, Eliza Doolittle and assorted Arctic Monkeys. It's a mixed bunch, from outright samba to subtly Amazonian indie-funk. Gruff Rhys, who has form for Brazilian flavours (from SFA's "Northern Lites" to his Tony Da Gatorra collaboration), proves the pick with the psycho-tropical title track.

Arctic Monkeys' six years of success shows in their singer's posture. When "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor" made them a phenomenon in the last months of 2005, Alex Turner hunched his head as if he was wading into a hurricane. That difficult musical adolescence was smoothly survived. Now, already promoting the band's fourth album, Suck It And See, he is an urbane, straight-backed young millionaire, character and creativity seemingly intact. The withering working-class reportage of debut Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, with its Alan Sillitoe-derived title, was dumped as soon as he left that world. The band's wider cultural resonance went with it, replaced by a more hermetic curiosity in the intricacies of songcraft. Each album since has been a little bit different... and a little bit worse.
