'Daredevil' Star Charlie Cox Discusses Season Two Of Netflix's Hit Marvel Series

Netflix declines to release viewing figures for any of its content, but recent estimates suggest that Marvel's Daredevil, which launched on April 10, is currently its [url=http://www.nme.com/filmandtv/news/first-netflix-viewing-figures-confirm-popularity-o/377224]most popular original series[/url]. Little wonder, then, that the online TV colossus has already ordered a second season of the dark drama starring British actor Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, a lawyer living in New York City's Hell's Kitchen district who transforms into a masked crime-fighter at night.

Disclosure Tease New Album With Thunderous New Single 'Bang That' - Track Review

After the release of their surprise million-selling Number One album ‘Settle’, Surrey duo Disclosure took off into the dance-pop stratosphere, scoring hit singles, appearances at every international festival worth its salt and a 2013 Grammy nomination for Best Dance Album. Two years later, the Lawrence brothers are back with a banger. ‘Bang That’ (and it’s no misleading title) pushes their ravey sonics into colder, lustier territory here, stripping back the hyperactive hooks of fan favourites like 'White Noise' for a more minimalist, beat-driven five minutes of rave pressure.

19 Brand New Bands You Need To Hear (May 1, 2015) - Playlist

Kicking off this week’s Buzz playlist of breaking/unknown bands we love are the great Coneheads, from north-west Indiana. Last year’s ‘Canadian Cone’ tape is an absolute gem, and certainly one of the best lowkey north American releases I’ve heard in years, right up there with the early stuff from Merchandise, Sheer Mag and Milk Music. Much like that last band, they’re pretty press shy.

Finally, US comedy Broad City is being shown in the UK. If you tuned in to Comedy Central on Tuesday night, the show's UK premiere, you’ll have been introduced to Ilana and Abbi already - two girls in their early twenties running the usual gamut of sex, friendship, drugs, work and parties, while trying to make it in New York. Abbi is an artist who works as a cleaner in a gym, also harbouring secret dreams of becoming a trainer there.

Jazz Drumming Movie Whiplash Is Right - Training To Become A Musician Can Be A Brutal, Harrowing Ordeal

JK Simmons drama Whiplash stormed cinemas earlier this year with its powerful depiction of a young jazz drummer whose struggle to appease an overbearing teacher pushes him to a dangerous brink. For classical pianist James Rhodes, who you might recognise from Channel 4 shows Don’t Stop The Music and Notes from the Inside, it was a dark reminder of how humiliating and torturous training to become a virtuoso can be - mobile phones were thrown at him, his face was spat on and his life became full of "pain, sweat and terror" as he mastered his instrument.
