Arts and Entertainment Disclosure, Settle (PMR)

The Lawrence brothers duo Disclosure has been touted as the saviour of UK dance music, which makes one wonder at just how bad a state UK dance music must be in.

Album: Chemical Brothers, Further (Parlophone)

On their largely instrumental seventh album, unlike their arena-techno peers (Jaxx, Armada), the CBs shun the celebrity hook-up and go DIY.

Album: The Chemical Brothers, Further (Freestyle Dust/Parlophone)

"Further", of course, was the destination-plate of the bus driven across America by Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters, and thus makes a fitting title for an album on which The Chemical Brothers indulge their more psychedelic leanings.
