Kylie Minogue continues her DISCO journey with “Magic,” a new feel-good thumper that has a chorus so infectious you’ll be singing it in your sleep… That is, if you go to sleep instead of taking Kylie’s advice:
“Tomorrow don’t matter. We’ll make the night last forever. Do you believe in magic?”
Looking for that perfect drag or day look when the boss makes you wear a mask in front of the customers? Well the TINY FACE MAKEUP CHALLENGE may have the answer! Glamour starts above the top lip after the jump! Who’s your favourite?
Full disclosure – if you think this intro is going to shy away from unabashed idolatry in the name of journalistic neutrality you’ll be wildly disappointed. At the moment, Róisín Murphy is promoting her muscular new record, Róisín Machine [available for pre-order], which is already being hailed as a modern classic – or at least it is now!
The record has been somewhat unfairly promoted as a disco record – a purist term that limits the depth and variety of influences that informs her every move. Leave it to Murphy, however to further futurize a genre that has, since its inception, been subject to evolution.
It’s improbable that Murphy could make a genre-specific record, a born rule breaker since the early days of her first band, the Sheffield-based duo, Moloko. Her formative years populating clubs in Sheffield and Manchester remain at the forefront of her inspiration. Her influences range from industrial music, to punk, techno, and most recently to massive dubbed out disco classics. It’s unsurprising that her own projects have veered into almost all of those genres without ever approaching parody or disingenuity.
As hard as she may try, Murphy seems incapable of complying to tradition. On the cusp of three decades in the music industry, the 47-year-old’s body of work defies categorization, which explains her adoring fan base’s indefatigable interest in her work.
As if her soon-to-be-released record weren’t exciting enough, the self-proclaimed Machine can’t help but share incredibly exciting news about her next project and her aspirations for after fifty.
In an attempt to contain her multitudes to one article, we chatted with the iconic disco-punk queen about her legacy, her relentless creative curiosity, reputation, and her many cultural infatuations.
It is deep Autumn and Sam and Tusker, partners of twenty years, are on holiday.
They are travelling across England in their old campervan visiting friends, family and places from their past. Since Tusker was diagnosed with young-onset dementia two years ago their lives have had to change. Jobs have been given up and plans put on hold. Their time together is now the most important thing they have.
As the trip progresses however, their individual ideas for their future begin to collide. Secrets are uncovered, private plans unravel and their love for each other is tested like never before. Ultimately, they must confront the question of what it means to love one another in the face of Tusker’s irreparable illness.
Looks great and heartbreaking all at once. Check out the trailer for Supernova, the new film starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci, above!
