The first trailer for Jurassic World debuted yesterday (November 25), three days earlier than we had been led to expect, and the instant reaction was overwhelmingly positive.
Finally, a fitting way to listen to your Bloc Party vinyl collection. A Korean Lego enthusiast, known on YouTube as Hayarobi, has put together a working turntable using over 2400 Lego pieces. Hot on the heels of a dancing Lego version of Spongebob Squarepants, his creation uses a traditional phono cartridge but, other than that, is pure Lego. Impressive, right? Check it out below.
Looking through NME's 50 Top Tracks of 2014, one thing is clear: it's been a life-affirming year for music. From Future Islands' breakthrough 'Seasons (Waiting On You)' to the emergence of Fat White Family with seedy anthem 'Touch The Leather, St Vincent's crystallisation of the modern world in 'Digital Witness' to Run The Jewels taking it up a notch with 'Blockbuster Night Part 1', the list includes a variety of stone-cold classics to entrants we couldn't have predicted back in January. The return of Aphex Twin, for example. Caribou's career highlight album with 'Our Love'.
It's not unusual for things to go wrong during concerts. I'm thinking of Paul McCartney's grasshopper attack, the frontman of NY deathcore band Emmure getting electrocuted and rogue fans bum-rushing the stage at Justin Bieber's concert in Dubai.

The video is for 'Storm', an unreleased track from the band's three-CD rarities collection, 'Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path', out this week.
