Top 10 movies of 2015 ANDY lists off its favourite flicks from the past year

#10 — Inside Out (review by: Joe Jodoin) This Pixar masterpiece is not just the best kid’s film of the past few years, but it managed to draw a large adult audience as well. What’s shocking about this film is that it has a really clever and high-concept story that is still engaging for children. Arguably, making great films that are equally loved by children and adults is one of the hardest things for a filmmaker to achieve. Michael...

ANDY’s best albums of 2015 In no particular order, the ANDY section lists off their five personal favourites

Tomi Milos/ANDY Editor 56 Nights – Future Future absolutely destroyed 2015 and it all started with 56 Nights. Following the likes of Monster and Beast Mode, 56 Nights goes about asserting Future’s exponential growth as an artist since his very public breakup with Ciara with a slew of hyper-personal tracks many do a disservice by dubbing “turn-up bangers”. Despite how heavy they go in the club, songs like “Never Gon Lose” and...

Much of the equation remains the same in Steve Jobs: the focus is still an...

Interview: Chris Baio The Vampire Weekend bassist turned-solo artist links up with ANDY before his Toronto show to discuss his move to London, the making of his newly released record, The Names, and the perils of late night sports

When I meet Chris Baio at Toronto’s Drake Hotel he is exhausted and mildly anxious, but still smiling. Slightly bleary-eyed from his cross-Atlantic flight that day, the London-by-way-of-New-York musician is about to do sound-check for one of the first shows in support of his debut solo album, The Names, but is waiting on a crucial part of his performance. Nursing a coffee in one hand while warmly shaking my own with his other, Baio...

[REVIEW] Drake & Future – What A Time To Be Alive The two rappers united to much hype, but the pairing didn’t boast the sort of return fans expected

What a time to be alive indeed. If you’re not a corny old-head who thinks the height of rapping is astute grasp lyricism, your favourite rappers right now are probably Future and Drake. With the pair coming off of absolutely massive years in which their only competition has been each other, it makes sense that they’d pool their star power together link up for a full-length project. Although Drake was effusive in his praise for Future...
