He's hardly misleading the youth: Generation Y has turned into Generation Y Bother Getting High, It’ll Stop You From Getting A Job

Album: Guy Clark, My Favourite Picture of You (Dualtone)

The voice is scrunched a little tighter now, and frayed, and the tunes seem worn to the bone, but… Well, you can't keep a good man down.

Caught in the net: Tranquil tunes from joking Jeremiah

Warp's latest signing is the rapper/producer Jeremiah Jae. To mark the occasion, he's dropped a new mixtape which can be streamed/downloaded for free at snd.sc/1c6EBwH and ind.pn/163xb7p. The nine-track Bad Jokes mixtape trundles along in a haze of snippets, samples and Jae's tranquil, pop-culture-laden raps in one blunted, weed-infused sound, largely produced by the man himself. South Californian beat-scene influences abound throughout, as evinced by Flying Lotus showing up with production on one track.

One Direction member Louis Tomlinson has signed a contract with Doncaster Rovers Football Club

One Direction, two careers: Can Louis Tomlinson be a pop star and a footballer at the same time?

Dreams. Most of us never fulfill any. But now One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has aced two of the most common boyhood desires - to be a footballer and a member of a globally successful boy band - in one fell swoop (and at the tender age of 21).

And this one goes out to my Mum and Dad...

Caught in the net: The man of the forest engraves his sound

It's rather hard to describe the sound of Forest Swords, as evinced by the new track from the Liverpool producer (aka Matthew Barnes). The piece, “The Weight of Gold”, comes from his August released album Engravings and is streaming through his Soundcloud and at forestswords.tumblr.com. It's a murky, dark and experimental affair, with snippets of guitar tones, beats rolling through, fragments of vocals and various sonic and electronic effects. Whatever which way one describes the thing, it's probably best to say it sounds great and is worth attention.

Left to right: Geoffrey Howe - Nationwide chairman with dreams of being a star, he earns £300,000 a year for working three days a week; Cristiano Ronaldo - Star of Real Madrid and one of the world’s best footballers, with the looks to match his ball skills; Jon Bon Jovi - The all-American rock star’s eponymous band have sold 130 million records and played in more than 50 countries

Guess which one’s the banker: Geoffrey Howe talks salaries with Ronaldo and Bon Jovi

Can you spot the difference between these three chaps? It’s hard I know. But the brooding, sex-in-a-suit type (near right) is Geoffrey Howe, chairman of Nationwide, who has compared the extravagant salaries of bank executives with those of “footballers” (such as Cristiano Ronaldo, centre) and “pop stars” (Jon Bon Jovi, far right).

Caught in the net: Marvellous Archie Marshall aims for the stars

Eighteen-year-old Archie Marshall has been steadily garnering acclaim under his stage name, King Krule, for his hazy, dark melange of sounds: a touch of new wave guitar, some synths, a hint of dubstep, a bassy vocal growl. His self-titled 2011 EP was a particular standout. Now comes his debut album, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, out on 24 August, the occasion of young Marshall's 19th birthday. The record's opening track, “Easy Easy”, is streaming now at youtu.be/9i35KOGBYBo – and it's a fine, spare effort.
