The Hit list

THE FILM

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

THE BOOK

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

THE AL­BUM

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

THE CHAIR

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
