The musical new year is still in hibernation, the increasingly choreographed and grating hype for fresh acts standing in for any real action. Denmark's Treefight for Sunlight have taken the opportunity to play a week of London club shows, and support gigs with New York's mighty The Walkmen. Their self-titled debut album, due next month, is dipped in West Coast warmth, and this fresh-faced quartet, barely out of their teens, exude health and hope.

Tonight an ensemble of 25 actors and musicians will embark on a stamina-busting, 50-hour improvised comedy soap-opera, the appropriately named Studio 50.

It's a gloomy world that Rachel Kneebone has created at White Cube. The walls are painted in shades of grey, dark and brooding in the downstairs gallery and paler upstairs, the paint streaked in rain or tears. Kneebone makes extremely complex, delicate porcelain sculptures that teem with confusing, writhing tiny body parts arranged like urns or wreaths: a leg here, a penis or vagina there, and twisting forms that look as though they could be vines or spinal chords. Pieces of bodies in a horrific jumble. The sculptures are at times hideous visions that present bodies in states of fear, sadness and horror.

This year was always going to be a good one for The Drums. The 'next Strokes', as they have lazily been labelled, were the winners of the NME Philip Hall Radar Award 2010, an accolade picked up by the likes Glasvegas in the past. The gong is awarded to the band tipped for success in 2010, and it was right on the money.
