Where do we even begin today? We are living in unprecedented times, in the midst of a global pandemic - the news is full of "coronavirus this" or "COVID-19 that". Many cities and countries across the world are on lockdown, residents physically isolated. Fortunately, music still offers an escape of sorts, and Leicester musician Cj Pandit's latest soulful effort 'Digital Love' offers a glimmer of hope in the darkness.

The 2020 Oscars have been and gone so it seems appropriate for us to drop a list of our top films of 2019. Before we get to our best of, a hat-tip to some honourable mentions that might have made the list on another day, in another mood. Not forgetting all those films we missed, including Oscar-winning doc 'For Sama' and Eddie Murphy's comeback in 'Dolemite Is My Name'.

New York duo Overcoats are gearing up for the release of their second album, 'The Fight', out in March on Lomo Vista. Joining a diverse roster including Andrew Bird, Marilyn Manson, and St. Vincent, they've also recently been remixed by Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth, himself no stranger to remixing a diverse range of artists from The 1975 to t.A.t.U. Listen to his remix of 'Leave If You Wanna' and the delectable original.

We recently introduced you to the latest musical efforts of former Hot Club de Paris main man, Paul Rafferty, and his unusually titled Doomshakalaka project. Having taken the bold move of unveiling his new guise with a six-minutes-plus opening gambit in the form of the intriguing 'Black Balloons', he opts for a somewhat more conventional path this time with the metronomic 'James Asleep', celebrating the announcement of his self-titled debut album.

James Cameron's 1984 classic 'The Terminator' introduced us to TECHNOIR, a nightclub within the film but also a wider genre mix of film noir and sci-fi. In 2020, new Irish duo Dark Tropics have delivered their debut "pop-noir" single, with the enveloping (and possibly Terence Malick-inspired) 'Badlands'. Dark Tropics by name, dark music by nature.

Another year, another list of our favourite TV shows. 2019 was dominated by HBO, but not always for good reason as 'Game Of Thrones' came to a divisive end. However, 'Peep Show' co-creator Jesse Armstrong's second season of 'Succession', the small screen adaptation of 'Watchmen', and the dramatic retelling of 'Chernobyl' were all tremendously well received. Unfortunately, they escaped our viewing this year, and before we get into our top ten TV shows of 2019, we've got a couple of honourable mentions.
