The Bride - Bat For Lashes
Natasha Khan (aka Bat For Lashes) returns with her latest album, The Bride that follows the story of a woman whose fiancé has been killed in a crash on the way to the church for their wedding.
Written as the soundtrack for a feature length film in mind, The Bride is Khan’s most ambitious work to date, sonically and visually incorporating an entire world inhabited by The Bride. The lush and striking artwork was conceived as a visual partnership between Natasha and Neil Krug (Lana Del Rey, Foals, First Aid Kit) The Bride's universe being the product of two years of collaboration and experimentation.
The Bride is out now on CD and digital download.
Nobby (Sacha Baron Cohen) has everything a man from the town of Grimsby could want – 9 children and the most attractive girlfriend in northern England (Rebel Wilson). There’s only one thing missing in his life: his little brother, Sebastian (Mark Strong). After they were adopted by different families as children, Nobby spent 28 years searching for him.
Upon hearing of his location, Nobby sets off to reunite with his brother, unaware that not only is his brother an MI6 agent, but he's just uncovered a plot that puts the world in danger. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realizes that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.
Fans of Baron Cohen will rush to support this film but there’s no escaping the fact that Grimsby – despite its stellar supporting cast – plays to the lowest common denominator and is probably his weakest film to date.
Grimsby is out now on Blu Ray, DVD and digital download.
