Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe sounds all kinds of wrong – like that time Claire Danes went out with Ben Lee. Still, it works – here the gruff Aussie (his voice has hit a new low) and the wunderkind romping about ’70s LA in this schlocky, if violent, gangster romp. The Nice Guys is in cinemas May 26
This lavish new look at the influential ’80s outfit, as led by the charming man himself, Morrissey, features tour photography alongside snaps of varied ephemera. That’s right, ephemera. The Smiths; $85; hardiegrant.com.au

$2095; BALLYOF SWITZERLAND.COM
Catfish and the Bottlemen – shit name, if proof that Welsh music means more than Aled Jones. After pulling out of last year’s Splendour, expect cool crooner Van Mccann and his indie-hackers to land here ahead of the release of their new album – a heady, digestible guitar romp expected in May. catfishandthebottlemen.com
Safe to say we’re fans of this stunning ‘Untitled’ chair from Malmo-based Australian designer Glen Baghurst – a man who continues to impress after only officially debuting as a designer a little over a year ago. POA; glenbaghurst.com
