Jake Bugg - Jake Bugg Already drawing comparisons to Bob Dylan and idols Donovan and Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys, 18-year-old Jake Bugg shows great promise. The Nottingham troubadour's raw, rootsy eponymous debut is inventive and showcases his undoubted potential.

Throw in critically acclaimed first single Lightning Bolt and this is one Bugg you won't mind picking up this winter (Rex Features)
