It was the Beverly Hills resident's first Coachella, and in many ways the festival that launched 15 years ago has been much bigger - and full of more rarified pleasures.

Laura Marling, diminutive, steely-eyed and sometimes appearing on stage in a trench coat, could've been dreamed up by England's version of Daniel Clowes as a comic antihero, trudging through the London fog when she's not drolly mumbling to herself about romantic failure. That isn't to say that she's defined as some figment of male imagination; the same way she doggedly works her nylon-stringed guitar, she'd scratch her way out of the page before that happened.
