3, 2, 1… The Best Performances at Bestival, According to ALEXA

  There were performances going on left, right and centre for the whole 4-days of Bestival. Almost too many to handle. And while no one (sadly, including myself) could adopt magical qualities of teleportation to make sure all gigs were covered, I’m going to let you know who impressed me the most out of the…

Bestival 2018: Layla’s Top 3 Live Performances!

Here it is!  After seeing some great live acts (and a couple of not so great ones) in such a short weekend, it was difficult to pin down exactly who was my favourite.  However, Alexa and I have somehow managed to decide who our top 3 live performances were, and here are mine…   NUMBER…

I Have Nothing…but love for Whitney (REVIEW)

  My friends and I watched the new doc Whitney [2018] last week because we love all things Whitney Houston, but we were TOTALLY unprepared for the emotional rollercoaster that we were about to embark on. Everyone knows about Houston’s hardships with fame, marriage and drugs, but director Kevin Macdonald documents her journey from a young…

Mamma Mia 2 – a musical sadder than Les Miserables?

Okay first up – this review is NOT spoiler free. You have been warned. Secondly: my initial reaction to this movie has not stopped me from listening to solely ABBA for the last week nor from booking tickets to see the movie again. Ready? Let’s dive into it.   Mamma Mia 2 – Here We…

Metronomy at the Somerset House Summer Series Review

Having been an avid follower of the indie synth-pop group Metronomy for many years now, it has always struck me as nothing short of remarkable just how this band has managed to keep their sumptuous sonic inflections at such relatively low levels of super-stardom. While being hugely successful, it would be safe to say that…

RESIST Feeling Jealous: Roger Waters @ British Summer Time (a Review)

  One word screams to mind when you say Roger Waters; legend. That is, when you know who he is and what he’s done. Before going to see him at Hyde Park I’d googled him but my knowledge (embarrassingly) of this man didn’t extend much further than that. So, I’ll forgive you if you’re not…

Colombia, Ice Tea, Penalties: KCL Radio follows the 2018 World Cup

Sweepstakes are always great fun. Be it Eurovision, the Grand National or basically any large international competition, the luck of the draw means you get to root for a team you have no prior connections to, at least more often than not.
