The Christian Science Monitor examines the resurgence of '80s artists like Prince, Morrissey and the Cure.

"I guess as somebody who makes music now, I'm trapped in a context. I can't change that. You hear my music now. But maybe I get excited listening to stuff out of context. Like, Abba records sound amazing now. And the Who doesn't really hold up." Jeff Tweedy talks to Rolling Stone about music, rehab, and playing with his son.

The Financial Times recounts last weekend's Glastonbury Festival.

The Chicago Sun-Times reviews a recent Magnetic Fields show.

"The public's imagination chooses to see me as the drink-too-much, drug taking English urchin with bad teeth," he says, stressing he's just a regular bloke. "I am what people want me to be." Mike Skinner (The Streets), in a short interview with the New York Daily News.
