  • Essential Playlist: The Knife

    Essential Playlist: The Knife

    by Robert Whitfield

    Their demise is a great loss for music and for culture in general. Fortunately there are artists out there now who are sure to be stepping up to carry on the work started by the duo, and if The Knife choose to return one day with new music we will welcome them with open arms. [read more]

  • The Ultimate Green Man 2014 Review

    The Ultimate Green Man 2014 Review

    by The 405

    We tried to work out exactly what it was that made Green Man so special, what set it apart from the other festivals, the reason why only days later we were already so desperate to go back. Honestly, we tried, but everyone we spoke to held something different to their heart. [read more]

  • The 405 meets Mor Elian

    The 405 meets Mor Elian

    by Will Robinson

    "I bought a bunch of new gear!" Israeli-by-way-of-LA house and techno producer Mor Elian is surprisingly perky for a Sunday morning, no doubt roused from her recovery early after a long Saturday night to participate in yet another interview but appearing cheerful over Skype. [read more]

  • Imogen Heap interviewed: "The only thing I planned for was the unexpected."

    Imogen Heap interviewed: "The only thing I planned for was the unexpected."

    by Lior Phillips

    Sparks captures an artist wanting to experience the full weight and brevity of making music in the 21st century. Life is faster and connections are volatile, so the leap forward for Heap is how she's fuelled by technology, how she believes it drives us, rather than buries us in a bewildered state of inertia.

  • The 405 meets Mozart's Sister

    The 405 meets Mozart's Sister

    by Alex Vickery

    It's rare to hear a debut that is catchy, smart and confident, one that defines itself within a genre while simultaneously pushing its boundaries.

  • Don't Cry for Me, I'm Already Dead: The Simpsons Movie

    Don't Cry for Me, I'm Already Dead: The Simpsons Movie

    by Mike Clark

    Once in a great while we are privileged to experience a movie event so extraordinary that it becomes a part of our shared heritage. The Simpsons Movie was supposed to be one of them. Yet, today, on the seventh anniversary of its release, it exists only as a dumb pig joke that people seemingly refuse to acknowledge as a legitimate film. [read more]

  • Hayao Miyazaki: The Wind Rises, A Fitting End

    Hayao Miyazaki: The Wind Rises, A Fitting End

    by Jonny Williams

    The Miyazaki that we have come to love and enjoy, with films like Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle and –a personal favourite of mine- My Neighbour Totoro is a director who delves into his various fantastical narratives, creating worlds in which audiences can lose themselves and become completely immersed within.
