Welcome to what was a great week on the Lauren Laverne show. Paul Smith from Maximo Park & Peter Brewis from Maximo Park joined forces and dropped on by to play a session, along with discussing scoring for films, big kerbs / sidewalks and random lyrics. King Creosote saw us on by on Monday and talked boat building, parenthood and the local communities in Fife. Chris Hewitt reviewed The Hunger Games, James Brown biopic Get On Up and gave us the latest on Zoolander 2. But we start with American rock hero, and Husker Du founder, Bob Mould. He played tracks from new album Beauty & Ruin, along with telling all about life on the road, writing standing up and looking after that LOUD voice.

This week’s download sees Lauren joined by the legendary Chali 2na, who discussed his the history of Jurassic 5, his career as an artist, and played a couple of songs in the live room. We were also joined by Norwich six-piece Wooden Arms, who brought their luscious full folk sound to the studio, and stuck around to chat about their onstage eccentricities. We round off with Empire Magazine’s Chris Hewitt, who popped in to review this week’s new releases, The Imitation Game and The Drop. While he was here, he offered us another one of his hidden gems – a little known crime film starring Bill Murray and Robert Deniro.

It was a ladies-of-the-silver-screen special this week as we were joined by the best that Hollywood has to offer. Anne Hathaway talks Interstellar, her love of physics and astronomy, and what it was like to be directed by singer Jenny Lewis. Keira Knightley popped on by on Tuesday to discuss being an ordinary suburban girl, taking a break from depressing film roles and what the perfect night in Teddington looks like. And Lena Dunham joined us on Wednesday to talk all about smash-hit TV series Girls, forcing us to play Taylor Swift and just generally being a great role model for the entire world.
