2017 BFI London Film Festival (4-15 October 2017) // Words: Saam Das


It was sad to open this year's programme for the BFI London Film Festival and not find a dedicated sonic strand as has been the case in recent years. There are still plenty of music-related films available for consumption however, including this evening's Opening Night Gala 'Breathe', directed by Andy Serkis and scored by Nitin Sawhney.

The demise of South African upstarts Al Bairre last year was particularly upsetting - their uplifting sound and joyous live shows felt so primed for wider appeal that we can't help but feel that there's a sense of unfinished business. And perhaps Nicholas Preen from the band felt similarly, with a wonderfully evocative beginning to his new nicpreen guise.

Kofi Holmes Attivor is Mined. Mined apparently "sings things that warm his heart and break his heart in equal measure." A bittersweet sentiment imbued on recent electronica-meets-R&B single 'Girl', as you can discover below.

Bushstock Festival (10 June 2017, various venues across Shepherd's Bush) // Words: Saam Das


The Communion Records-run Bushstock Festival is only into its seventh year of running, yet feels like such a vital staple of the UK festival scene. The 2017 edition once again offered the usual Bushstock mix of upcoming artists and notable headliners, with The Staves and Nick Mulvey appearing. A much delayed review of the day follows.

We're approaching that time of the year when the "best of [insert year here]" lists come out and in light of this, we figured it would be a good time to also showcase some of the underexposed movies that might get missed off those lists. These films each made it to the big screen in the UK in 2017, but may have only been on a limited release.
