Album: Arctic Monkeys, AM (Domino)

The third album of Arctic Monkeys’ Los Angeles sojourn is a significant improvement on both Humbug and Suck It and See, suggesting they’ve found a more satisfying rapprochement with the classic rock that tends to come with the territory over there.

Album: Janelle Monae, The Electric Lady (Bad Boy/Atlantic)

The Electric Lady extends the cyborg sci-fantasy tale of Janelle Monae’s The ArchAndroid, albeit in a less eclectic manner – the folk and psychedelic elements abandoned in favour of a more focused assault on R&B territory.

Prince plays at the Montreux Jazz Festival

Gig review: Prince, Auditorium Stravinski, Montreux Jazz Festival

When Prince comes to the Montreux Jazz Festival, all bets are off. On his third visit to the Swiss Riviera for the 47th edition of the event, he was given carte blanche over three consecutive, sold-out evenings and appeared determined to cover as many bases as possible.

Glastonbury 2013 reviews: From Bassekou Kouyate to Mumford and Sons, Sunday has its fair share of top festival moments

Glastonbury organisers Michael Eavis and his daughter Emily took a chance on turning Mumford and Sons into a headline act; with just two albums released to date, it’s early in the band’s career. But the four-piece folk-rock band, with Brit and Grammy awards to their name, more than rise to the prestigious post. It’s an even more triumphant performance, following the brain surgery and happy recovery of their double bassist Ted Dwane.

Glastonbury 2013 - review: A laid-back Sunday to follow the Rolling Stones' show - from Rufus Wainright to John Lydon

So how can you possibly top that set from The Stones? A dream Saturday night headline set from the biggest rock band in the business was always going to a tough act to follow. Respect then to Bath-based The Heavy whose midday set on The Other Stage was a perfect start to the final day of this year's Glastonbury festival.

Album: Jupiter & Okwess International, Hotel Univer (Out Here Records)

Less approachable than Staff Benda Bilili, not as sonically challenging as Konono No1, this new contender for best Congolese band on the planet is fronted by one-time Damon Albarn collaborator Jupiter Bokondji.

The Strokes, Comedown Machine (Rough Trade)

Album review: The Strokes, Comedown Machine (Rough Trade)

Their fifth album finds The Strokes continuing the search, begun on 2011's Angles, for ways to tackle the future.

Album review: Wave Machines, Pollen (Neapolitan)

Liverpool art-rockers Wave Machines return, after three years, with a chiselled record of synth pop, rich with squiggles and shimmer.

Sinead O'Connor, St Luke's, LSO, London

The blunt, vulnerability of Sinead O’Connor’s shorn head appears stark as she stands on a large stage in the beautiful converted church of St Luke’s. But Ireland’s wild child, no stranger to controversy, who happily says “I’m as dry as a nun’s…” in a chapel, can lay her emotions bare more powerfully now than when her cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U” was number one in 14 countries in 1990.
