Culture Cuts: Solange, TLC, Carey Mulligan And More...

This week we’ve chatted to NYPC about their new album and we deconstructed Dana from Homeland here are the other bits of culture you may have missed this week…

1) Carey Mulligan Does A Laura Marling Impression…

Well sort of…In The Coen Brothers’ already lauded opus Inside Llewyn Davis the sibling duo take a long, hard look at the Greenwich Village folk scene of the 60s. Expect lots of brilliant drama/music fusion from the team behind O Brother, Where Art Thou via Carey Mulligan inhabiting her inner Marling and Justin Timberlake his inner Dylan (via some questionable facial hair).

2) The Sugababes Do Lorde

One of the best songs of the summer was Lorde’s Royals, so it’s with a big ‘whoop’ that our favourite reformed girlband Mutya Keisha Siobhan have covered the track with their impeccable harmonies and bit of self referential lyrical teasing.  

TLC Do A New Song

If you’re up for stooping down low and weeping in a corner of the room over Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, may we recommend this new song from TLC? Featuring a ridiculously sweet sentiment about fate, it’s great to have those crazy, sexy, cool gals back.

Steve Coogan Makes Us Cry

Nope, he’s not killed off Patridge (yet), he’s produced and co-written this heart breaking true story of a woman whose goes looking for her lost child, 40 something years after she last saw him. Judi Dench gives an incredible performance as the heroine in a film that was met with ecstatic reviews when it was shown at the Venice Film Festival.

Solange Makes Another Cool Video…

We sort of missed this one when it first came out, but we’re very happy to big up Solange’s new (ish) video for Lovers In The Parking Lot. The smallest Knowles drops several shapes in an abandoned mall (the recession, eh?). Check out the middle part of the video where everything goes slow motion in a wig shop. Wowza.
