  • Eiko Ishibashi: Imitation of Life – review

    (Drag City)

    Many in the west will come to this album through its association with Jim O'Rourke, Chicago-born, now Tokyo-based arch-collaborator with artists as diverse as Joanna Newsom, Wilco and Sonic Youth. Singer-songwriter Eiko Ishibashi is in his band (and he is in hers), and this record bears many O'Rourke hallmarks: a loose jazz feel, plenty of space between the guitars, flutes and vibraphones, a commitment to prettiness, and no great sense of its own difficulty, despite coming out of the international improv scene. Ishibashi is a delicate and precise singer, as well as an engaged multi-instrumentalist, and the whole seven-track confection feels at once deep (the tracklisting includes Resurrection and Fugitive) and light.

  • Roy Harper: soundtrack of my life

    The singer, songwriter and guitarist on how Miles Davis and skiffle shaped his sound, dancing to Stephen Stills's overlooked 1972 gem – and the first time he met Jimmy Page

    Born in Manchester, folk-rock musician Roy Harper left home at 15 and began writing music inspired by his love of poetry. His 1966 debut album, Sophisticated Beggar, introduced the distinctive and complex style of songwriting for which Harper was to become renowned, leading to collaborations with artists including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Kate Bush. More recently, artists such as Fleet Foxes and Joanna Newsom have cited Harper as an influence. Last month, Harper released his first studio album in 13 years, Man and Myth.

  • 'Hello Cleveland. We're Diarrhea Planet!'

    From Circle Jerks to Cerebral Ballzy, choosing the most obnoxious name possible is a much-loved tradition among punk bands. Here, we run the rule over the latest crop of semi-offensive monikers
