Britney Spears 'upset' over Australian tour complaints

Britney Spears has done it again, hitting the headlines during her first Australian tour over a row about lip-synching and a lacklustre performance that her tour promoter said had left her "extremely upset".

Album: Miike Snow, Miike Snow, (Columbia)

Miike Snow is not a man. Miike Snow is, in fact, two men: the band alias of Swedish duo Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, whose CD sleeves are annoyingly damage-prone cut-outs of the mythical jackalope.

Album: Joan As Police Woman, Cover (Reveal)

Cover is Joan Wasser's Pin-Ups, a compilation of cover versions that reveals much about her approach to music.

Album: Tom Bancroft, The Ballad of Linda and Crawford (Interrupto)

Beginning with the rat-tat-tat-tat of the irresistible "Toxic Beaming Happiness", which mixes music written for the US pianist Geri Allen with an homage to Britney Spears, drummer/ composer/bandleader Bancroft has created a powerful yet playful concept album about personal/marital breakdown.

DJ Tiesto, Victoria Park, London

DJ Tiesto's brand name and face are plastered either side of the stage. You may also see him modelling underwear on giant Times Square billboards, and advertising expensive watches. The Dutchman is the epitome of the modern international superstar DJ. He broke house music into the US mainstream, remixed Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, and DJed as athletes paraded at the Athens Olympics. Tonight's four-hour set in front of 20,000 people in the East End's open air is a mere aperitif compared to the six hours of his current Ibiza residency. He is the biggest DJ in the world. But, for all the mega-pixel video screens, the scale and success, at the end I'm left wondering: is that all there is?
