Album: The Horrors, Skying (XL)

This is the one. You may remember, in 2009, the clamour of critics lauding The Horrors for – shock, er, horror – actually making a good album with their second effort, Primary Colours. I was practically a lone sceptic, sulking and tutting on my own in the corner.

Album: EMA, Past Life Martyred Saints (Souterrain Transmissions)

Erika M Anderson announced her arrival as a solo artist with the striking seven-minute single "The Grey Ship", which opens this debut album in a multi-sectioned lo-fi epic that's like passing through a series of doors, from folksy strummage to buzzing synth mantra-chant to brief melodica pause and berserk thrash, before settling into a calm conclusion.

Drive Angry: Video interview with Amber Heard

Nicolas Cage stars as a vengeance-fuelled father pursuing the killers of his daughter and to save her kidnapped baby in Drive Angry, the new in-your-face shocker from the team behind My Bloody Valentine!

Album: The Go! Team, Rolling Blackouts (Memphis Industries)

Right at the end of what is officially the most depressing month of the year comes a shaft of unadulterated sunshine.

Treefight for Sunlight, Hoxton Bar and Grill, London

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.

Album: Sun Airway, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier (Dead Oceans)

As an intimation of musical intention, the title Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier pretty much nails it here, Philadelphia duo Sun Airway dealing in a miasmic drone-rock that brings to mind My Bloody Valentine collaborating with The Flaming Lips.

Caught in the net: An infectious blast of noise pop

It feels like every week a new all-girl guitar band emerges, each heavily influenced by 1980s indie; all distortion, guitar jangles and hazy vocals, with some swift punky riffs from the 1970s thrown in for good measure.

Bad vibrations: Is it time to crank down the volume at concerts?

Loud bands have existed since the birth of rock'n'roll, but now earplugs are to be given out at concerts.

Album: Darker My Love, 2 (Dangerbird/Strange Addiction)

Deep in the Los Angeles suburb of Silverlake, the long-dormant seeds of shoegazer drone-rock pioneers like Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine are finally bearing fruit through bands including Silversun Pickups and now Darker My Love, whose second album becomes the band's first UK release.
