Donald Silverstein: Jimi Hendrix

  • Free

These previously unseen archive images taken by the late American photographer in London in 1967 form a mesmerising portrait of the legendary Jimi Hendrix. The shoot produced one of the most famous images of the twenty-five year-old musician that was released as a poster insert for Electric Ladyland in 1968, yet the other images from the session were never used and have been kept safely by Silverstein's family for the past fifty years.

The daddy of UK – and arguably, European – folk festivals returns with another round of enticing artists and an easygoing, slightly hippy-ish vibe. The emphasis is on established/traditional talent, rather than nu-folk fare, and it's a

FKA Twigs

  • Critics choice

When considering London singer-songwriter FKA Twigs (real name: Tahlia Barnett), one word immediately comes to mind: spellbinding. Whether it’s her creeping, sensual songs, the subtly discomfiting visuals accompanying them, or the languid, undulating onstage motion of the doe-eyed artist (a trained dancer) one thing is certain: it’s very difficult to break the trance. Her first EP surfaced in 2012, self-released and with each of its four tracks boasting a simple but

Skinny Girl Diet

  • Critics choice

Raucuous and very cool female punks Skinny Girl Diet headline a 1-2-3-4 event with support from screechy post-punk band The Wharves and strummy guitar man Joe Fox.

Songhoy Blues

  • Critics choice

Hailing from northern Mali, the four members of this hard-grooving Afro-blues act were driven to Bamako by the Islamist crackdown in their home region. There they took part in sessions for last year's brilliant Africa Express record alongside western musicians including Damon Albarn and Nick Zinner, and came over to play their first British gig at the album launch. Now they're back for a second crack at London, and should set this intimate Dalston basement venue alight.

Shez Raja Collective

  • Critics choice

Famy

  • Critics choice

London band Famy (formerly Family, but clearly they were getting confused with the ’70s prog rock band) specialise in highly promising lo-fi, echo-laden songwriting. It's a little like 'Sung Tongs'-era Animal Collective – i.e. awesome.
