This week we shed tears of azure blue for the end of Breaking Bad and we tried to decipher the hidden meaning behind Britney’s new video Work Bitch here are the other bits of culture you may have missed this week…
1) Listen To Lauryn Hill's New Song Consumerism
One time! Two time! Or not…just before the former Fugee is released from prison for tax evasion, she’s released this track, the psychedelic and funky Consumerism. It’s pretty different to the classic sound we associate with Ms. Hill but for those who have heard this year’s Neurotic Society she’s continuing on the politico-Gil Scott Heron-like style. We love it.
2) Watch The 'Sal' Trailer
James Franco continues his wonderfully left field career choices with his directorial film Sal which tells the tale of Rebel Without A Cause star Sal Mineo’s life. Weirdly it was actually premiered at the Venice Film Festival a whole three years ago, but it’s only being released now.
3) Listen To Sleigh Bells' New Album
GRRRRR-(singy bit)-GRRRRRR-(singy bit)...Yes, you will have heard the quiet/loud songs of Alexis Krauss and Derek E. Miller on the soundtracks for Gossip Girl and The Bling Ring. Now the all-conquering duo are back a mere year on from their last album Reign Of Terror with their new opus Bitter Rivals. We can’t stop listening to it here, you can stream the whole thing at the link here…
4) Watch The Trailer For 'Blue Is The Warmest Colour'
This three hour long epic that tells the rise and fall of a love affair, won the Palme D’Or at The Cannes Film Festival this year and it’s easy to see why – thrillingly honest performances from Lea Seydoux and newcomer Adele Exarchopoulos plus a mesmerizing directing style from Abdellatif Kechiche.
