Eight Artists To Watch Out For In 2019

As we reminisce on the last 12 months with Spotify’s 2018 Unwrapped, it’s time to see what bands and solo artists look set to breakthrough in the next year.


It’s fair to say Liverpool’s Zuzu is a multi-talented creative – as well as her music seeing her constantly on tour, releasing several singles and even a decent Christmas song, she also finds time to act in and direct her own music videos as well as illustrating comic books.


TV Review: The Bridge

The epic Scandi-drama Bron/Broen bows out with a thrilling finale, meaning the end of this Saga, in every sense.

“Saga Norén, Länskrim Malmö (Malmo CID)” – It’s the call sign we’ve heard dozens of times. Over the course of the last four seasons, our Swedish heroine detective has seen it all, from the rise and fall of her partnership with loveable, but flawed Danish policeman Martin Rohde, to this culmination of an elongated story arc with current handsome, but beset-by-tragedy co-crimefighter, Henrik Sabroe.


TV Review: Last Commanders

In a world where Children’s TV budgets have been repeatedly slashed, Last Commanders is an innovative attempt at refreshing a classic adventure game format, which – taking its lead firmly from TV shows such as Knightmare, The Adventure Game and The Crystal Maze – makes for a genuinely entertaining watch.

Children’s TV has changed a lot in the last twenty five years. Whereas the previous generation of youngsters could return home from school to see bespoke programming on both Children’s BBC and CITV for two hours every afternoon, nowadays we have many dedicated all day TV channels available, as well as other competing mediums online.


Washed Out Festival 2018 Review

Washed Out Festival returned for it’s second year last weekend, bigger and better than before. Taking its cue from Dot to Dot and the early days of The Great Escape, Brighton’s premier punk festival saw 68 acts play across eight stages, over two days. Here’s a look back at how it all went down…


The new warm-up night starts upstairs in Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, one of Brighton’s many excellent independent music venues. As the wristband collection gets underway, the acoustic sound of Tim Loud rings out.


Switching Online Cloud Backup From CrashPlan to Backblaze

Having waited years for a native Mac app, thousands of CrashPlan Home users have finally jumped ship, forced out by software company Code42.

It’s fair to say that us CrashPlan Home users have had it rough. Way back in 2014, I switched from my then backup service of choice Mozy, to CrashPlan by Code42. At the time I gave CrashPlan a glowing review, save for one issue – the lack of a native Mac app – something that was promised would be shortly arriving.
