Ev­ery­thing Ev­ery­thing have long been one of the UK’s most eclec­tic (and un­der­rated) indie bands, and new al­bum Fever Dream is suit­ably full of off-kil­ter cool. Mix­ing synth hooks, pop cho­ruses, fran­tic guitars – and is that a house beat? – it’s com­plex but down­right catchy stuff. In­tel­li­gent indie that wants to get us danc­ing? We’re on board.

Out Thurs­day When the World’s Best Bar (of­fi­cial) holds a pop-up at one of Lon­don’s Best Ho­tels, the drinks are hardly go­ing to be sec­ond-rate. That’s why you need to drop what­ever you’re do­ing and head to Clar­idge’s, where award-win­ning NYC cock­tail den Dead Rab­bit is tak­ing over for one week only. Warn­ing: sig­na­ture drink Psy­cho Killer – in­volv­ing whisky, Cam­pari and, er, ab­sinthe – may well live up to its name… 15-22 Aug
