Album review: Various Artists, Son of Rogue’s Gallery (Anti-)

This follow-up to the original 2006 Rogue's Gallery sea-shanty compilation is slightly less salty but just as broad-ranging musically.

Album: Tegan and Sara, Hearthrob (Warner)

From henceforth, all commercial-pop snobs should be obliged to listen to the Canadian sisters' seventh album.

Palma Violets, Boston Arms, London

Crowd surfing continues with the band off-stage, a topless girl balances on a mate's shoulders and the bouncers look panicked. This year’s hotly tipped saviours of guitar rock take all this in their stride, at least until a chaotic finale, suggesting either they learn fast or this is typical of their gigs.

Album: Various Artists, Nuggets (Rhino)

When Elektra's Jac Holzman first commissioned future Patti Smith Group guitarist Lenny Kaye to compile Nuggets, back at the start of the Seventies, the intention was simply to collect overlooked Sixties gems worthy of rescue from oblivion.

Django Django, Heaven, London

The Mercury Prize isn’t much to get excited about these days. Despite its judges’ best efforts, it’s an increasingly predictable marketing tool for a more upmarket demographic than the Brits.

Album: Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Mature Themes (4AD)

Ariel Pink’s latest outing with his band finds him scaling the foothills of musical competence on tracks like “Farewell American Primitive” and “Only in My Dreams”.

Lou Reed, Royal Festival Hall, London

“Was it too quiet for you, asshole?” Lou Reed enquires, putting all the dripping contempt he can muster, which is plenty, into demolishing a fan who unwisely, ironically yelled “Louder!” after tonight’s first song.

Album: Joe Jackson, The Duke (Ear Music)

In his Eighties pomp, Jackson contributed a superb arrangement of "Round Midnight" to a Thelonious Monk tribute album, but this new homage to Ellington works as superior adult-pop rather than jazz.

The Hives

The Hives: Suited, booted, top-hatted and ready to rock

The Hives' fifth album has been five years in the making. It's the time it takes to make a classic, the natty rockers tell Gillian Orr

Friends

Album: The Hives, Lex Hives (Sony)

Track one on Lex Hives consists of Pelle Almqvist shouting "come on!" approximately 58 times. If you don't think this is brilliant, then this is probably not for you.

Iggy Pop's latest album ventures into French song

It was bad enough when Iggy Pop, once the embodiment of self-mutilating, rock n’ roll excess, reinvented himself as a motor insurance salesman.

Band of Skulls, Roundhouse, London

Band of Skulls have found the previously unknown, perilously small sweet spot between Kings of Leon and the Magic Numbers. This mixture of clean-hitting hard rock and boy-girl harmonies has given the Southampton trio spots on Mustang car ads and Twilight movie soundtracks in the US, success which has been slower at home.

Lindi Ortega, The Borderline, London

Wow. On record, the slender Canadian comes across as a fairly conventional country singer, lamenting her achy breaky heart (“Dying of Another Broken Heart”) and her own dirty deception (“Little Lie”). It’s not material designed – unlike Bonnie Prince Billy and Jim White – to scare the horses.

Album: Guided by Voices, Let's Go Eat the Factory (Fire Records)

After a 15-year hiatus, the "classic" line-up of Dayton, Ohio, lo-fi veterans reformed in 2010 for a year-long tour, culminating in this new album of 21 songs with titles such as "Doughnut For a Snowman".
