Arts and Entertainment Jake Bugg burst onto the scene aged 18

The success of Jake Bugg and Ben Howard has given rise to a new wave of male singer-songwriters who are queueing up to show off their sensitive sides

Album: Sons and Daughters, Mirror Mirror (Domino)

If Mirror Mirror sounds like it would work as a horror soundtrack, that's no coincidence.

Album: Charlie Dore, Cheapskate Lullabies (Black Ink Music)

Knowing, worldly, delicate but mordant pop born out of wisdom, mostly, and the desire to share it.

Album: My Morning Jacket, Circuital (V2)

The sixth album by these Kentucky alt-country types sees them risk destroying forever the aura of existential gravitas they've accrued with the previous five.

Lady Gaga sets a record

Lady Gaga's latest album Born This Way stormed to the top of the charts this week, selling more copies than the rest of the top 10 combined.

Album: Death Cab for Cutie, Codes and Keys (Atlantic)

Codes and Keys comes illustrated with a close-up photo of the hash key from a phone booth, a sight which, for any Brit, brings a Proustian whiff of stale urine. Fortunately, DCFC's latest is fragrant in a more pleasing way.

Album: Khatia Buniatishvili, Franz Liszt (Sony Classics)

Buniatishvili has described the piano as "a symbol of musical solitude", a quality apparent in this debut solo recording by the Georgian prodigy.

Album: The Pierces, You & I (Polydor)

Whether it's the involvement of Coldplay's Guy Berryman in the production, or simply their shift to a major label, on You & I The Pierces have lost much of what made 2007's Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge so beguiling.

Album: Sarah Jarosz, Follow Me Down (Sugar Hill)

She's still in her teens, but before you go perishing thoughts about Rebecca Black here are a few things you should know about Sarah Jarosz.

Album: Transglobal Underground, The Stone Turntable (Mule Satellite)

Once again London's original global fusionists have come up with a dizzyingly diverse bunch of tunes.

Album: William Byrd, Complete Consort Music – Phantasm (Linn)

From the unhurried ease of the "Fantasia a3" to the final cadence of "Prelude and Goodnight Ground a5", Phantasm's new recording is intoxicating.

Album: John Martyn, Heaven and Earth (Absolute)

The last work of a crumbled genius, recorded in the year before his death, some 30 years after his last great work.

Album: Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi, Rome (Parlophone)

Rome is a labour of love for Gnarls Barkley's Danger Mouse and Italian composer Daniele Luppi.

Album: The Zombies, Breathe Out, Breathe In (Absolute / Universal)

English psych-pop classicists from the 1960s (well, two of them, Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent) returning to old methods and sentiments: love, goodwill, acceptance and just a hint of angsty whingeing – melodic and, in the case of Blunstone's pipes, resilient as a breeze.

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.

Album: The Zombies, Breathe Out, Breathe In (Red House)

Having revisited their 1960s landmark Odessey and Oracle a few years back, Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone here revive The Zombies as a going concern, with a new album that repositions the band within the sonic lineage of Steely Dan.
