After seven years, east London’s trendiest music event appears to have finally got to grips with festival site logistics. There are significantly more bars, toilets and refreshment stands, and the stages seem to be located according to genre; meaning fewer cross-site dashes to catch complementary acts.

One of my favourite bands of the last five years or so Deerhunter (pictured) return with their first album since 2010's fine effort Halcyon Digest. The new one from the US art-rocking five piece is called Monomania and is due in early May. They recently shared the title track from the album – it can be heard at youtu.be/bYUENZQ84-E. Whereas Halcyon Digest was a relatively controlled, polished affair, here they sound a bit more unhinged and jagged, particularly in final movements as the song spins off into some wild noise. I'm pretty much happy to stick with them whatever move they make, so I'm excited to see how this record turns out.
