What is happening in the world of "indie"?

1) Arctic Monkeys have dispatched drummer Matt Helders to the US, where he's filmed a video for Suck It And See, the plodsome title track to the band's otherwise excellent new LP. Part Bonnie And Clyde, part Natural Born Killers, the resulting mini-movie is achingly, disdainfully cool. Warning: contains nudity.

2) Noel Gallagher has released what can only be described as a surprisingly competent solo single. AKA... What A Life! is, despite the tediously overwritten title, a little gem - carried along on a psychedelic swirl of Madchester house pianos, and sounding not entirely unlike Ian Brown's better solo material. Well played, monobrow.

3) Er... That's it.
