Patrick Wolf – The City

January 26, 2011

Totally brilliant new single from P Wolf. It has a really great 80s movie soundtrack/90s advert feel, thanks to the amazing sax. Totally expect an Andrew McCarthy/Molly Ringwald running around a city montage at some point. Although the current video is pretty great anyway – beautiful people, a beach, a parrot and a saxophonist that looks a bit like Vincent Gallo. Reminds me of my time at uni…..except for the parrot.

Also really like how much Paddy is smiling in this. Fingers crossed for some more super pop releases full of mega happy summer vibes to get us all out of this January bullshit.

Top-a tha mornin’ to ya Paddy!

Totally pointless post full of pictures of some of my favourite female movie characters.

The Coenfographic

January 24, 2011

By now you probably know how much I like a good infographic. Hell, I’ll read an infographic about just about anything. I’m a sucker for them. So when My good friends at Morph London pointed out this Coenfographic, you can only imagine my excitement.

Created by the very clever Muller, this stunning infographic looks at the ever so familiar reoccurring actors, such as Jeff Bridges, Frances McDormand, Billy Bob, John Goodman and George Clooney, used throughout the wonderful archive of Coen Brothers films. It’s basically just really fucking cool. See it here or download a big, massive hi-res version here.

Oh Joan.

Fantastic

Great book design by Pentagram for the making of Wes Anderson’s amazing Fantastic Mr Fox.

Blue Valentine

January 6, 2011

Ryan Gosling is one of my favourite actors, and Michelle Williams is just amazing. So with these two, plus a soundtrack and score by Grizzly Bear, this looks like it’ll probably be pretty bloody amazing…

Merry Christmas

Amazing debut track from a very talented old friend of mine. He’s going to be big so keep an eye on him. Available to buy now in iTunes here courtesy of Russell Club Records
