Arts and Entertainment Aaron Dessner from The National has called for other artists to support Spotify

The band said the streaming service should be supported if it encourages people to like their music and go to their shows

Album: Bonnie Prince Billy, Beware (Domino)

The sleeve typography of Beware echoes Neil Young's Tonight's The Night, and while the contents aren't quite as dismissive of listeners' sensibilities, they're still marked by the ruthless, even cruel streak that has become Will Oldham's characteristic trope.

J Tillman, Bush Hall, London

Much more than a fleeting talent

Dewey Martin: Drummer with Buffalo Springfield

Because Buffalo Springfield only existed for two years, many rock fans were surprised when the group was inducted into The Rock And Hallof Fame in 1997. Even more surprised were the members themselves, who had put aside their differences tobe together. The arrogant and aggressive Dewey Martin had not been an ideal team member, but the band did create some remarkably good and inventive music.

After the silence: Maverick film-maker Jonathan Demme finally returns to the Hollywood fold

Jonathan Demme has done his best to avoid Tinseltown since 'The Silence of the Lambs'. So why has a wedding flick lured this renegade film-maker back to the fold?

Rachel Getting Married - Lights, camera, music...

From TV On The Radio to Robyn Hitchcock, Rachel Getting Married has a soundtrack to savour, says Elisa Bray

Saint Etienne, Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

The final day of Heavenly Recordings' 18th birthday celebration saw indie dance pioneers Saint Etienne descend on the Southbank stage. Without a glowstick or neon T-shirt in sight, it seemed that "old rave" had slumped into middle age.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, CSNY/Deja Vu Live (Atlantic)

You might think this is another case of hippie veterans playing their Classic Album. You'd be wrong.

Neil Young: Iraq'n'roll

In 2006, Neil Young reunited with Crosby, Stills and Nash to protest against the Iraq war. Now he's made a film about the tour. Kaleem Aftab hears why

Neil Young, Hop Farm Festival, Kent

Walking on in a paint-splattered jacket, Neil Young salaams modestly. Soon, he's bending over his guitar, trying to buck it into life. A large fan makes his long, thinning hair blow back, as if he's always in his music's hurricane. By the time he finishes two hours later with The Beatles' "A Day in the Life", the crowd have had exactly what they came for.

Saluting the old masters of rock'n'roll

They didn't die before they got to this age, but neither did they fade away. Andy Gill salutes the stars who have managed to stay creative

Album: Sun Kil Moon, April (Caldo Verde)

On my list of criminally neglected Americana auteurs, Mark Kozelek is right up there, battling for supremacy with Jason (Magnolia Electric Co, Songs: Ohia) Molina and Sam (Iron & Wine) Beam (what is these people's problem with their given names?).

Neil Young, Hammersmith Apollo, London<br />Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, Pressure Point, Brighton

Even at 62, Neil Young shows he is still capable of putting on a persuasive, three-hour live show

Neil Young, Playhouse, Edinburgh

Enduring master delivers rough and the smooth

Album: Drive-By Truckers, Brighter Than Creation's Dark (New West)

It's been less celebrated than other, shinier trends in pop, but the last couple of years have seen a revival of the kind of storyteller-rock with which Bruce Springsteen once dominated American pop culture. Bands such as Richmond Fontaine and The Hold Steady have a wordy, narrative-based approach, combined with a dirty-realist worldview whose roots seem to lie in the downbeat nihilism of Nebraska, albeit given a healthy shot, in The Hold Steady's case, of youthful energy.
