Trailer Park: Lilyhammer

Sopranos/E Street star Steve "Silvio - wait - was it Sal?" Van Zandt is back in Lilyhammer. This time he's a gangster in witness protection who asks to be sent to Norway (big fan of the 1994 Winter Olympics). Culture-clash comedy action to follow. It's a Netflix-only show in the US, which could be a sign of things to come; in the UK it's on BBC4

Trailer Park: Kon-Tiki

Film based on the adventures of explorer Thor Heyderdahl who was so convinced that Polynesian people had sailed the Pacific before Europeans that he built his own balsa wood raft Kon-Tiki and sailed off on a 8000 km trip with a tiny crew for 101 days. No sat-nav, no iPod. Loved the idea of this guy when I was a kid

Cornelius v Salyu X Salyu

Missed this last year, looks like missing-in-action chimp-lover Cornelius has collaborated on S(o)un(d)beams, an album with singer Salyu (aka Lily Chou-Chou) - first full-length project since 2006's Sensuous? His Twitter feed @corneliusjapan is mostly in Japanese obviously, but it's worth checking the links if you're a fan

Themes For An Imaginary Film (That In No Way Would Be Called Drive)

Symmetry (aka Johnny Jewel, Glass Candy, Chromatics, Desire and Mirage) have released a two-hour album (iTunes / Soundcloud) of tracks from an "imaginary soundtrack" (ie the stuff Drive probably didn't want, as Pitchfork hints). Same highways John Carpenter and Giorgio Moroder once drove...

still not quite sure what the point of this new Spider-Man reboot is, but anyhow, here's a new poster that suggests Andrew Garfield is also getting some new shadow-play power along with the web-slinging

Black Bananas from RTX

Royal Trux/RTX singer Jennifer Herrema is back with Black Bananas - a new version of the band (yes, it's full of scratchy 70s Stones riffs, distorto-vox and Prince-ish songs called Hot Stupid). Pitchfork have got an MPFree. Album Rad Time Xpress IV is out in Jan with other thoughtful numbers like Acid Song, Killer Weed and Foxy Playground. That party train is not stopping any time soon. Still love Trux's Waterpark:
