Five for friday

With the news out that there will be a Stevie Nicks collaboration on the forthcoming Lana Del Ray album it maybe isn't surprising that your hand I will never let go has such a delicate ephemeral feel to it.
And yet for that being writ large it is still undoubtedly the sound of Stevie Nicks.
Hopefully both the collaboration, and this being an addition to The Book of Henry soundtrack, will signal a solo album from her.
The sooner the better.

And that neatly segues right into The Book of Henry itself.

The promotion trailer is enough to whet our appetite and we shall be checking it out as soon as it hits town.

Third of our five heads ups for a friday is The Nowhere Man, the second outing of the Orphan X series of books by Gregg Hurwitz.

Out now on paperback the character of Evan Smoak aka The Nowhere Man is fast coming up on the inside lane to grab the attention of fans of the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.
If unforging action heroes are your bag and you prefer a story to crack along at mach speed p[ace then you really don't have to look any further.

Right now it's acting as a magnet for my attention.

A review on the blog will follow.

Next up is a reminder that Orange is the New Black is back.
There's no guilty pleasures here.
Get watching it.

And last, but in no way least, it is time to big up Rory McLeod 

Last weekend we were lucky enough to see him perform at the Eden festival and would like to recommend that you give him a moment of your time.

Some may remember Rory from his Cooking Vinyl days, or from when he was on the road with The Levellers, but over the last few days it has been our distinct pleasure in getting reaquainted with this very talented man.

There's no point in us directing anyone to a point in his career that you should jump in at as it is all good.

If push came to shove then it would have to be said that he has taking the art of busking to a whole new level.
His voice a guitar, harmonica, spoons, and tapping out a rhythm is the basis for his story telling styled material and from there it takes flight and goes anywhere and everywhere.

There are plenty of youtube video that can be lined up and if you are impressed then it's only one click away to get to his website here and buy some of his releases.
