To Watch:
Shining Girls

One of the most-loved psychological thrillers to hit bookstores in recent years is now on TV. If you’re into books like Behind Her Eyes and The Outsider, you’ve probably already heard about The Shining Girls, Lauren Beukes’ 2013 novel about a time-traveling serial killer and the victim who turns the tables on him.



To Listen:
Delachute von Delachute

Released last year the Delachute EP is a self-titled debut release from Canadian Artist Delachute. Tender and full of emotion this EP dives deep with echoey guitar tones, and uniquely soft vocals that resul in an elegantly composed melancholic, catchy vibe.



To Read:
