Side Notes | July 19th

Updated: Aug 2, 2019

Side Notes is a weekly round up of everything and anything that catches our short attention span over the past week, coming to you live and direct every Friday.


Film

Midsommar - Ari Aster's second helping sees a young American couple embark on a spiritual feel-good journey to the heart of Sweden - NOT!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll already know that this film has been making people feel uncomfortable, disgusted and just a little bit off for over a week now. With vibes of The Wicker Man and its sinister use of suspense and suggestion, this is a film not be missed if you like your slow-burn horror-flicks.



Sport

We're going to break from the norm of cool sports like surfing and skateboarding and talk about 22 men with wood...willow that is. England won something. In one of the most jaw-dropping finales that the world has witnessed, England won the Cricket World Cup by the finest of margins, breaking Kiwi hearts in the process. Make the most of it by reliving the amazing day below.


Music

Bloc Party - Silent Alarm Live

One of the go to gigs of the year has been been Bloc Party playing through their debut (and best) album Silent Alarm. The album came out a staggering 14 and a half years ago. Where Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys and the like bought indie swagger and attitude to dance floors Bloc Party bought duelling guitars, emotion and an almost vulnerable sound to a saturating market and this live show is now available to own. It's a nostalgic trip down memory lane reminding us how exciting this band were when they broke out in 2005. 'Like eating glass', as with the original album, opens this album too.
