Bella Union rarely put a foot wrong – so it’s good to see their impressive track record continue with new signings MONEY. And yes, they’re from Manchester.

The Emotionary SITE Inspired, they say, by The New York Times Magazine’s “There Should Be a Word for That” feature, The Emotionary offers users “an emotional toolbox that can help you figure out exactly what you’re feeling” – or, in other words, it makes up words for those complex emotions that, as yet, are nameless. [...]
I Have A Bad Feeling About This fundraiser MOVIE Last year Laura Purcell, Alan Donohoe and Jamie Williamson raised enough money to shoot their microbudget sci-fi slacker movie ‘I Have A Bad Feeling About This’. Inspired by the likes of Clerks and Spaced, the suburban Liverpool adventure was shot last summer in the city. But [...]
Leaf presents The Garden, the new cafe and events space at FACT from the people behind Bold Street’s popular hang-out.
Don’t go for flowers and chocs for Mothering Sunday when there are so many home-grown delights you can treat your Mum to. Here are a few options…
The ‘Liverpool Mercury prize’, aka the GIT awards, is set to return this year, after its successful knees-up at Leaf in 2012. Should you wish to vie for the prize with the city’s best, there’s still time to take part. Last year’s shortlist was a strong one; a cross-section of great music going on in [...]
In a cold snap like this we need the warmth of sparky words to huddle around, and rekindle our mushy post-Christmas brains. Fortunately, our good friends at The Guardian are onto it.

It’s a pretty common misconception that design is for designers, and it exists in a vacuum. It doesn’t. It influences every little bit of our lives: from the computer or phone you’re reading this on, to the clothes you’re wearing, to the way you’ve done your hair today.

Ex-Trestles front man Alan O’Hare may have hung up the electric guitar but he’s gained a violinist – ad a whole new sound in Only Child.

But, thankfully, O’Hare’s turned it into bruised and beautiful introspection on his latest musical project. Together with the sublime fiddle playing from Laura McKinaly his new set of songs are quietly moving meditations on love, [...]
