The Galvanised! Festival returns this week for the fourth year running. Tuesday and Wednesday, Café Oto will be given over to a vast array of bands ranging from free jazz to psych rock and everything inbetween. Highlights include John Edwards, Teeth of the Sea, and Chocolate Monk. Check out the full line up at the Galvanised! website. Elsewhere this week:

Tonight, chanteuse Soap&Skin — the solo project of Anja Franziska Plaschg — will be at Union Chapel with a full ensemble.

If the festival assortment of Galvanised! doesn't provide enough variety for your on Tuesday, there are still plenty of options. Neo-Motown man Aloe Blacc will be at the Jazz Cafe. Chill waver Toro Y Moi will be at Cargo. And for those of you that would prefer something a bit crunchier in an early '90s alternative way, Dinosaur Pile-Up is at KCLSU.

For heartfelt folk songs and possibly a good cry, Young Rebel Set are at the Borderline on Wednesday.

Thursday, Michael Rother and Friends will be playing the music of Neu! at the Barbican for Hallogallo 2010. For a different kind of electronics, former Beta Bander Steve Mason will be at XOYO.

Friday, Italian drone rockers Father Murphy will be at Corsica Studios.

Round out this Sunday with more ambient drone from Black Carrot at the Lexington. For something more tangible, Cate Le Bon will be at Union Chapel with support from Emily Barker.
