Blast from the Past: Leave Me Alone // Hinds

I find it hard to fathom that it was five whole years ago, in January 2016, that Hinds’ LP Leave Me Alone debuted. I remember its release well. I was a single unemployed graduate, you know the story – emotionally vulnerable, unsure, lost in life. I had heard a couple of Hinds songs, and thought […]Read More

Blast From The Past: Malibu // Anderson .Paak

Five years ago today, Anderson .Paak dropped the Grammy-nominated Malibu, a neo-soul masterpiece often cited as his best work. I’d be inclined to agree with the consensus: Oxnard felt like slightly bland pandering with its excess of features (although the presence of Q-Tip was much appreciated) and Ventura was a bit closer to what was […]Read More

TV Review: Eddie’s Take on ‘Doctor Who: Revolution of the

Read Orla’s Take on ‘Revolution of the Daleks’ here. It’s certainly a pleasure to usher in another year with a new episode of Doctor Who, something that has become a custom over the past few years.

Theatre Review: Rent // Hope Mill Theatre

I should tell you that I’m completely obsessed with Rent… I bought tickets to see Rent at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester on a whim. In all honesty, I just wanted to be in a theatre again. I was gutted for the cast, theatre and myself when the production was forced to close to […]Read More

TV Review: ‘Selling Sunset’ Season 3 Misses The Mark

Selling Sunset lured many of us in at some point during lockdown with its glitzy houses, glamourous realtors, and a little bit of help from a very pushy Netflix algorithm. Giving an insight into the lives of the super-rich and their gorgeous houses, with a generous side order of catty drama, Selling Sunset is 2020’s […]Read More

TV Review: ‘Mandy’ Brings Diane Morgan Into The Spotlight

As someone who grew up watching Diane Morgan’s appearances on Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe, it’s hard to separate her from the persona of Philomena Cunk. Cunk clearly became a phenomenon, going on to host the BBC2 five-part historical mockumentary Cunk on Britain, and Cunk and Other Humans, alongside releasing books under the name. Cunk is hard to describe […]Read More

TV Review: ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2 Makes Light of

When season one of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy dropped last year, it took the world by storm. With its exciting storytelling, interesting characters, and stellar soundtrack it quickly got recognised as one Netflix’s tentpole shows and was only a matter of time before a second season dropped. But after such an amazing first season, can […]Read More
