There is beauty in simplicity. From the opening bars of understated piano melody and its opening lyrical salvo of "you're a revelation", it's a challenge not to be moved by the emotion-fuelled 'Revelation'. The team up between South African pop sensation Troye Sivan and Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi is for new film 'Boy Erased', which features an incredible cast including Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and indeed, Sivan himself.

London outfit Snapped Ankles were a preposterous and delightful surprise at Bognor Regis Butlin's for Rockaway Beach festival, where they wowed a mesmerised audience with their shamanistic expermentalism and unusually forest-imitating attire. They recently dropped a new one, 'Drink And Glide', which appropriately captures their live spirit.

First-time feature director Philipp Jedicke ambitiously showcases Canadian musician Jason Beck (more popularly known as the enigmatic Chilly Gonzales) in this playful music documentary. Charting the genre-defying history of Gonzales from his childhood in Canada to his more recent Grammy Award-winning work with Daft Punk and his appearances with world famous concert orchestras, by way of an underground rap career in Berlin. An unusual career path to say the least, aptly covered in 'Shut Up And Play The Piano'.

Haiku Hands + Rosko live at Corsica Studios, London (23 October 2018) // Words: Saam Das

It's been a cool fourteen-and-a-half years since we last graced Elephant & Castle for a gig - The Libertines at The Coronet in April 2004, if you must know - but we were happy to make our musical concert return to the South London area for this European tour date of Aussie ruffians Haiku Hands. Quite simply, they're one of the finest live bands going today, with their unique Beastie Boys-doing-beat-laden-pop vibe.

We caught the Nicolas Cage-led psychedelic horror 'Mandy' (don't fret, no spoilers in this piece) at the 2018 BFI London Film Festival, and we're still reeling from the viewing. Totally bonkers, and already well on its way to being a modern cult classic. Thanks in part to Johann Johannsson's incredible, larger-than-life score, one of his final offerings following his untimely passing in February this year.

Gabrielle Smith has been putting out music Stateside for the last few years under the name Eskimeaux, before a brief rebrand as Ó and now a final(?) moniker of Gabby's World. Which is also the name of a Romford toy shop. Dubious levels of research, Gabrielle. Anyway, we have a number of tracks to give us a taste of the New Yorker's debut Gabby's World album, 'Beast On Beast'.
