Dozens of jobs are under threat at one of the UK's most popular tourist attractions in Cornwall after it announced it had to make cuts worth £2 million.

Alan Pownall, Borderline, London

Beautiful and expensively groomed twentysomethings arrive to cram into the Borderline doorway. They air-kiss (both sides), and spread rumours along the queue that little-known singer/songwriter Alan Pownall, has massively oversold the cosy venue by at least 80 tickets.

So who runs the record labels now?

Stars like Jack White, and Kings of Leon, and many cult acts, are starting labels. Why? Are their signings better than those to traditional companies? Elisa Bray looks at the small print

Noah and the Whale, Roundhouse, London

Still full of the joys of Spring

Observations: A meeting of minds in the nu-folk revolution

With Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale and Mumford & Sons among its alumni, west London's informal school of folk is known for regularly producing popular, talented young singers and songwriters. Members of the aforementioned bands used to play together at the Bosun's Locker on the King's Road, until that venue closed. For the last two and a half years, however, their regular meeting place has been the monthly Communion night at Notting Hill Arts Club.

Nowt so cool as folk... and that's no pipe dream

Young and trendy folkies are breathing new life into traditional music. Yes, really...

Golden Silvers outshine Noah and the Whale

Noah and the Whale and Golden Silvers, The Hospital Club, London

Album: Noah And The Whale, The First Days of Spring (Mercury)

Barely a week goes by these days without the appearance of yet another concept album about a failed love affair, with efforts from La Roux and Frankmusik followed here by Noah and the Whale's account of their frontman and songwriter Charlie Fink's break-up with Laura Marling.

Green Man festival, Glanusk Park, Brecon Beacons

Walk this way for shining folk

Album: Various Artists, Sacred Songs for Worrying Times (Righteous)

A striking anthology of modern faith-based ruminations, some custom-built to fit the compilation's prescient brief, others sourced with impeccable taste from the likes of The Handsome Family ("Grandmother Waits for You") and Slint singer/guitarist Ryan Driver ("When Were You in Mexico").

Fanfarlo, ICA, London

Multi-taskers who keep it reel

Observations: Film fans will have a whale of a time on Noah's tour

Folk-pop quartet Noah and The Whale are embarking on a 10-date UK tour with a difference. Kicking off on 5 March in Norwich, the Club Silencio Tour promises an evening of film and music that harks back to the music halls of old. The film fanatics say the tour is inspired by the Club Silencio scene in David Lynch's Mulholland Drive.

Records of the year (by the people who should know)

Adele
Santogold [aka the American singer Santi White] is a real icon; amazing songs, fantastic style and she's innovative too. I'm really envious of her writing; especially stuff like "L.E.S. Artistes", which she wrote about all the posers in the Lower East Side of New York. The production on her [self-titled] album is brilliant and she's a great live performer. Talk about the whole package!

Highlights & low notes: Noah and The Whale

Charlie Fink doesn't look like a pop star. Propped up against a picnic table outside his King's Cross local in central London, with a cigarette in his hand and a tired, sheepish grin on his lips, he looks more like a shy, dishevelled student than the man responsible for writing and performing one of the summer's biggest pop hits.
