Paper Cinema’s Odyssey

My sister and I celebrated our birthday by watching Paper Cinema’s Odyssey last night. We’d already seen the show at Latitude Festival in 2012 so knew how amazing it was going to be, even so I spent the entire show mesmerised and smiling from ear to ear. It really is brilliantly done.

If you’re in London, and you want to see live animation at its best then head to the Battersea Arts Centre, the show is on until the 9th of March. Go! x

Taylor Swift and Dancing Years

I’ve been listening to the same two sets of music this week: T Swizzle’s new album and a delightful discovery in the form of Dancing Years.

Taylor Swift’s new album Red has¬†been on constant repeat in the Hopwood household. We’ve been big fans for years now and openly so. My favourite songs on the album thus far are:

  • I knew You Were Trouble
  • All Too Well
  • We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (it took me a while to appreciate this one, now I’m slightly obsessed)
  • The Last Time (the perfect combination of Snow Patrol and Taylor Swift, so lovely!)

Dancing Years have everything I look for in a band; jumpers, facial hair, trumpets and a chorus of all the above singing their little lungs out. Here’s a little live snippet of them performing live – I ¬†absolutely love the way this track builds.
