  • Records from a rented room: Astrud Gilberto mines the sadness of song, making the heart lurch

    Continuing her series, Anita Sethi moves flat – and finds herself torn between Gilberto’s melancholy bossa nova and flying into the mystic with Van Morrison

    What, I wonder, has been the piece of music that has moved you most? It’s been when I’ve been unable to move that music has been most moving. “I’m moving home,” has been my refrain of late to explain being frantically busy, but now that I’ve finally moved, my body has given in to dreaded fatigue and flu and I’ve been buried beneath the duvet, limbs leaden, unmoving (apologies here must go to my new flatmates for not yet lifting a finger to help do the bins). And so I’ve been enjoying music instead from a position of stillness, curled up beneath the bedcovers while watching Glastonbury unfold, from marvelling at Mary J Blige dancing on huge heels to the dancer doing handstands as Pharrell…

  • Glastonbury 2015 verdict: Florence + the Machine, Kanye West, the Who and more

    Florence Welch pulled out all the stops, while Kanye’s set was faltering and relatively restrained. But everyone was talking about the rapper – even Sunday’s closing act the Who, says Alexis Petridis

  • Glastonbury round-up: Kanye West divides the field, and his set lacks the dazzle to reunite it

    Even the hip-hop star’s fans might have been disappointed by his performance. Meanwhile, Mary J Blige weeps and Mark Ronson brings all his funky friends

    A divisive headliner is rapidly becoming a Glastonbury tradition and Kanye West outdoes even Metallica last year when it comes to inspiring extreme reactions. During Welsh rock band Catfish and the Bottlemen’s Friday afternoon set, frontman Van McCann asks, sincerely, if people are looking forward to the rapper’s performance and the boos drown out the cheers. Before Kanye takes the stage there is a genuine crackle of jeopardy.
