Now this is a place with real pedigree. I don't mean it used to be owned by Pierre Koffmann or helmed by Marco Pierre White or picked up a Michelin star under Raymond Blanc. Oh no. In Edwardian times it was a theatre-cum-dancehall-cum-bioscope (an early form of cinema, where punters could watch footage of King Edward VIII's funeral).

Album review: Keith Jarrett, No End (ECM)

He never took drugs, Jarrett writes in the sleeve notes to this double CD of previously unreleased private studio recordings from 1986, but otherwise happily participated in the Haight-Ashbury summer of love, whose melody lingers on.

Kings of Leon

Music review: Kings Of Leon - The Followill foursome don't do humour, but Mechanical Bull sounds promising

“I'm proud to have done this here in London,” Caleb Followill announces at the end of a live-streamed, one-off set, the decision to bring the Tennessean foursome back to the UK proving inspired. Kings Of Leon only played a short arena tour in June, yet selecting a theatre tiny in comparison cements the continuing warm affection between group and fans that the singer rarely fails to remind have been with them the longest.

Bell X1, Chop Chop (Belly Up Records)

What's surprising about this Dublin band's sixth album is that they've created a wholly original sound without resorting to samples or other electronic gadgetry.

Album review: AlunaGeorge, Body Music (Island)

Aluna Francis and George Reid offer a blend of warmth and innocence which in places recalls trip-hop pioneers Sneaker Pimps as well as more modern comparisons with the voguish pop alienation of Lana Del Rey. Reid's sparse backing tracks, with their blend of brittle, skittish beats, deep synth bass pulses and woozy keyboard chordings, nod to the synthetic variety of contemporary British modes from bashment to dubstep, while Francis employs a distinctive childlike Estuary English delivery that's equal parts Lily Allen and (the younger) Bonnie Langford.

Album review: MG Boulter, The Water Or The Wave (Harbour Song)

It’s a long road to anywhere from the Essex Delta. The good thing about Boulter – whose second solo album away from the Lucky Strikes this is – is that he’s intent on the events of the journey rather than on what awaits at the end of the A13.

Jon Hopkins' album 'Immunity' is out now

'Daniel Lanois brings magic to any song he touches'

Album: Mavis Staples, One True Vine, Anti-

She won a Grammy in 2010 for her last collaboration with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy. You get Grammys for uplift. But One True Vine tells a slightly different story, one of spiritual inquiry and trial. Well, almost. This is not Mavis Staples the hearty belter of gospel platitude but the quiet examiner of religious premise – there isn’t a shadow of doubt expressed here about where Mavis is going, but there is plenty of feeling that the journey, like all journeys, is bordered with darkness. It’s in the sound of the music and, even more so, in the recessiveness of Staples’ own performances. The gospel interior.

Album review: Sigur Rós, Kveikur (XL)

Kveikur finds Sigur Rós in more forceful and declamatory mood than usual, a shift heralded by the explosion that ushers in the heavy guitar riff and juddering bass of “Brennisteinn”.
