Another busy week at 6 Music headquarters means another jam-packed download for you. We were joined by Idlewild, who discussed the reclusive recording process of their long awaited return, Everything Ever Written. They played us a track from that record, as well as an old one. Earlier in the week, Marika Hackman stopped by to play stripped down versions of songs from her new album, We Slept At Last. She talked to Lauren about fighting against pigeon-holing and trusting the advice of people who know better ¬– in this case, her nan. Writer of The Beach and 28 Days Later, Alex Garland, visited the studio to discuss his directorial debut, Ex Machina, and, as always, Empire magazine’s Chris Hewitt talked us through the week’s new releases for Friday Film Club.

This week on the Lauren Laverne show, we were joined by filmmaker, music video extraordinaire, and – most recently – children’s author, Garth Jennings, who discussed his new novel, The Magnificent 7. While he was here, he got all nostalgic about his own time DJing at 6 Music, and let slip some need-to-know information about a very exciting new movie project. Chris Hewitt took a break from tirelessly documenting Oscar buzz to give us a rundown of the week’s new releases, including Clint Eastwood’s controversial new picture, American Sniper. Plus, we were joined by Boxed In for a live session in the build up to his debut album’s release. He hung around to tell us about his transition from prolific producer to artist in his own right.
