With his new album 'The Blueprint 3' having been leaked online this week, the hip-hop superstar Jay-Z (right, with Kanye West) appears to be in the process of transcending to another plane of cultural influence, all fuelled by a love affair with the internet which shows the man himself to be as forward-thinking online as he is in the real world.

"Glitch-hop" isn't a term that fills me with excitement, but right now there's a bunch of producers in Southern California making music that has been given this catch-all name – I'm sure anyone included hates any such easy categorisation.

There seems to be a constant parade of arty indie rock bands getting pushed on music blogs, and in the case of the Southern Californian guitars/drums duo No Age in the pages of 'The New Yorker'. Sometimes it's hard to keep up and No Age had thus far passed me by, but on the basis of their new EP 'Losing Feeling', I will be jumping right into their back catalogue which includes last year's highly regarded, debut, full-length album 'Nouns'. The pair, Randy Randall and Dean Spunt, deal in the experimental end of rock, with layers of beautiful noise, lots of fuzzy guitars and hazy vocals. The new four-track EP isn't released until 6 October, when it comes out on 12-inch vinyl and in digital format – there will be no CD version. In the meantime, their record label, Sub Pop, is streaming it online now – you have to register with the site (it's free) but that's about it: subpop.com. I heartily recommend a listen.

There's a man at the top of Carnaby Street singing "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright". No, it's not 1964. It's last Thursday. And the man in the floppy felt hat and sunglasses, strumming and singing for the benefit of a gathering crowd, is not Bob Dylan; he's 35-year-old Joshua Radin. Not everyone in the crowd knows who Radin is, but they stay to listen to his songs – and if they watch any US television, there's a good chance they've heard some of them before.
