    From Kanye West’s Glastonbury festival booking to miniature Paul McCartneys and Adele’s unstoppable album, our roundup of the week’s biggest music news

    It’s over in the sense that Marvin Gaye’s family have been awarded almost $7.4m (£4.9m) by a court, in relation to a copyright infringement case against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams.

  • Tobias Jesso Jr. Talks Breaking Big with 'Goon'

    In 2015, there's perhaps no solo artist more hyped than Tobias Jesso Jr.   Since his demos first appeared on YouTube, the Vancouver-bred singer-songwriter has slowly caused a stir in the blogosphere, with his debut LP, Goon (out now via Arts & Crafts in Canada and True Panther in the U.S.) frequently cited as one of the most anticipated albums of 2015, and the artist gaining fans and friends in high places (Adele and HAIM among them).   But as Jesso Jr. explains to Exclaim!, he wouldn't be where he is today if it wasn't for the help of one man: former Girls' member and producer Chet...
