So Fionn Regan made a new album

So that’s good news, after my previous two blogs. Hope this is not the album cover though ;).

After I wrote about Fionn Regan last week…

After I wrote about Fionn Regan last week, it’s nice to hear Abacus will be sampled on the new Bon Iver album. Still doesn’t tell us what he’s up to though. But he gave permission I presume. Or someone did.

 

Go see Kubo & The Two Strings

I saw Kubo & The Two Strings last Saturday, a great stop-motion animated film by Laika (who also did the wonderful Coraline). It’s a pretty amazing story combining a ‘Legend of Zelda’-type quest, the stories that make a life and a wonderful fairytale all in one.

It’s a beautiful world to get lost in, full of magic, melancholy and stories beyond the fairytale being told. It’s been a while since I looked at a screen for the first hour thinking: “This is so nice. I don’t want this to end.”

Probably my favourite film of the year so far. Go see it while you can, in cinemas now.
