                We started off a busy week of sessions with a visit from The Vaccines, who played us two tracks from new album, English Graffiti, and spoke about finding a sound so ‘now’ it might sound terrible in ten years. Fort Worth crooner, Leon Bridges, brought his soul revival sound to the kitchenette, and mesmerised us all with two beautiful renditions of tracks from Coming Home, the debut album. He talked about getting his big break over a chance meeting with White Denim’s Austin Jenkins (who now performs in his band). Best Coast talked us through a day in the life of the LA band (spoiler: it involves a lot of ‘chilling’), and livened up our very British day with a taste of their California Nights. Finally, Chris Hewitt reviewed Disney’s latest effort, Tomorrowland, the Poltergeist remake, and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.

                It was yet another busy week of live music and interviews on Lauren’s show. On Monday, Billboard chart-toppers, Alabama Shakes, dropped in to play us a couple of songs from Sound & Colour and talk about their rapid climb to fame after the unexpected success of their breakthrough debut. On Friday, Nemone sat in for Lauren. She was joined for a spellbinding live session from Róisín Murphy, who brought a string quartet along and filled out humble hub with some of the most beautiful noise it has ever played host to. She told us about living a double life during festival season, and how she knew it was the time to end her eight-year album hiatus. To round things off, our resident film buff, Chris Hewitt, reviewed the utterly bonkers Mad Max: Fury Road and Pitch Perfect 2.
