Here are the answers to this week's quiz...

L'Arpeggiata, Christina Pluhar, Mediterraneo (Virgin Classics)

Album review: L'Arpeggiata, Christina Pluhar, Mediterraneo (Virgin Classics)

Mediterraneo is a fascinating project designed to embody the notion that “the sea does not separate cultures, it connects them”.

The Hilliard Ensemble, Prayers and Praise: Vocal Music by Alexander Raskatov (Challenge Classics)

Album review: The Hilliard Ensemble, Prayers and Praise: Vocal Music by Alexander Raskatov (Challenge Classics)

Like other former Soviet composers freed from compulsory atheism, Alexander Raskatov employs a great many liturgical and religious texts in his music.

Devendra Banhart, Mala (Nonesuch)

Album review: Devendra Banhart, Mala (Nonesuch)

Devendra Banhart's last few albums left little impression, and despite moving to Warners' artists colony Nonesuch, his latest seems unlikely to arrest that trajectory.

Steve Mason, Monkey Minds in the Devil's Time (Double Six)

Album review: Steve Mason, Monkey Minds in the Devil's Time (Double Six)

On his most rewarding release since The Beta Band, Steve Mason grapples with politics both public and personal, but in a warm, engaging manner that draws the listener in.

Of Monsters And Men

Music review: Of Monsters and Men, Shepherd's Bush Empire, London

“This is in your native language,” jokes Ragnar Þórhallsson, singer and guitarist for Icelandic indie-folk act Of Monsters and Men, mocking the crowd’s lacklustre response to his attempts to start a singalong for radio favourite Mountain Sound.

Album: Grenados/Guridi etc, Canciones Españolas – Schwartz/Martineau (Hyperion)

Sharpness and sweetness combine attractively in Sylvia Schwartz's voice.

Album: Brigitte Beraha & John Turville, Red Skies (E17 Jazz)

There's a purity and innocence to Beraha's voice that can leave her exposed in a duo such as this, pianist Turville's spare chording offering nowhere to hide.

Album review: Josh Groban, All That Echoes (Reprise)

The Groban Phenomenon seems unstoppable – All That Echoes crashed into the American charts at No 1, and will likely follow suit here too – though for all his personable self-deprecation, the blend of operatic pop on which his reputation is built seems strangely thin and insipid.

Mindy McCready suicide confirmed

Eurovision: Meet the new song. Same as the old song

The Eurovision Song Contest is no stranger to controversy. Whether it’s claims that Franco rigged the 1968 show to boost Spain’s flagging tourism industry, or the Azerbaijani government being accused of forcibly evicting people from their homes to make way for beautifying its capital, Baku, ahead of 2012’s contest, barely a year goes by without at least a whiff of scandal.

Album: Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, What the Brothers Sang (Domino)

The brothers are the Everlys, Dawn McCarthy is the singer and creative force behind Californian psych-folkers Faun Fables, and Bonnie "Prince" Billy is, oh you know, Bonnie "Prince" Billy.

Jamie Lidell, Jamie Lidell (Warp)

Album review: Jamie Lidell, Jamie Lidell (Warp)

Though latterly resident in Nashville, Jamie Lidell continues to mine the territory where soul meets techno, a precarious manoeuvre that sometimes finds him tumbling between two stools.
