"Ordinary Guy"

Two decades may have passed, but alternative-era firebrands the Juliana Hatfield Three sound just as wistful and slackerish as when they scored hits with "My Sister" and "Spin the Bottle" in the Nineties. The trio's comeback single, "Ordinary Guy," finds the singer-songwriter playing a chunky, upbeat guitar line while singing about what a creep her

"Shit (Remix)"

Label trouble, album delays and a high-profile public feud couldn't keep Lil Wayne from rapping about the joys of freaky sex. He nods to his ongoing drama in the song's first few bars but quickly gets carnal: "You might need lube for this," he warns a partner. Given a few moments, one should be able to figure out which Latin anatomical term he rhymes those last three words

"Get It"

Brooklyn duo Matt and Kim announced their first record since 2012 with this rollicking preview of things to come. The driving drum beats and jittery synths, the mind-numbing group chants  ("We all sing along/ But the notes are wrong") and the abrupt, bass-heavy breakdown come together to provide an indie-pop soundtrack

"Heartbeat Song"

Clarkson's been out of the game for a minute: Her last album, 2013's Wrapped in Red, was holiday music, and she recently had a baby, lil' River Rose, whose in-utero heartbeat was sampled to provide part of the beat for this new single. But "Heartbeat Song" is hardly a warm, fuzzy snuggle-fest. "Been so long, I forgot how to turn it up, up, up, up all

"Uma Thurman"

Fall Out Boy go hard on the pop culture kitsch appeal here — not just with the title, but with a surfy refrain nicked from the theme to The Munsters, that most goth of black-and-white TV comedies. It's pretty great that the biggest rock band on the pop charts are such huge honkin' dorks, and pretty amazing that they're able to make something so catchy and

"Air" is filled with hypotheticals. As a relationship falls apart, Waxahatchee frontwoman Katie Crutchfield weighs the meaning of every action and the possibility within every choice, her careful articulation revealing not indecisiveness but empathy. When she draws out the line "You are patiently giving me everything I didn't need," you feel for both her and

World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo 2015 already off to a flying start

WTCE, 14 – 16th April, Hamburg Messe, Hamburg

The World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) is set to return to Hamburg on 14 – 16th April 2015. The world-class exhibition will boast plenty of opportunities for professionals from across the air and rail industry to network and discuss new business partnerships. In 2015 there will be exciting new content, as well as a host of first-time exhibitors offering visitors plenty of food for thought.

In a recent report, Oxford Economics predicts that over the next decade the global travel industry will grow at 5.4% year on year – faster than world GDP. Additionally, Mintel’s annual comparative audit report of American lifestyles suggests that renewed consumer spending is in line with pre-recession trends. With the report outlining that vacations and tourism is one of the spending categories poised to show the greatest growth over the next five years, increasing by an estimated 27.3%, WTCE – the world’s largest event dedicated to travel catering, passenger comfort and buy-on-board products – is the principal global meeting place at a key time for the US market; when the onboard services sector is booming.

Reflecting this boom, the onboard services industry is constantly evolving to keep pace with changing consumer preferences. Meal personalization and celebrity endorsed recipes, clever packaging, ethically sourced cups and cutlery, and a wide-ranging retail offering are just some areas where operators can add value to boost profits and gain a competitive edge.

Since its launch three years ago, WTCE has established itself as an international hub where the airline and rail elite can come together to discuss the travel catering and onboard services industry’s most significant evolutions. The 2015 show will bring together professionals specializing in a wide variety of products and services from across North America such as Freshorize Limited, Global Inflight Products and new exhibitors Sky Cuisine and RMT Global Partners. Visitors can enjoy the offerings of exhibitors from a range of countries as diverse as Lithuania, New Zealand, South Africa, Thailand and the UK. Suppliers will display the full range of catering and onboard services including food and drink, passenger comfort, hygiene products, travel retail, packaging, galley equipment and more. With 41 new exhibitors already confirmed, visitors will be able to even further expand their networks and discover fresh ideas for the onboard offering.

Mark Russell, Vice President of returning US exhibitor, Linstol commented, “WTCE Hamburg provides a unique global platform for Linstol to network and exhibit enhancements made to our line of headsets and other cabin comfort products. Teams from each of our international offices attend year after year because we get so much in return. As we continually strive to innovate, the feedback we receive as well as the face-to-face interaction with both old friends and new holds enormous value.”

In 2015, WTCE will expand its remit with the launch of the new Travel Retail Zone, reflecting the huge growth this sector has experienced in recent years. In this area buyers can meet with suppliers of sale-on-board items and discuss how they can boost their offering to appeal to the modern traveller. A product trail will also lead attendees to other exhibitors at the show with a travel retail offering, making it easy for them to target their visit and come away with plenty of inspiration.

Visitors can also take advantage of the Taste of Travel theatre where they can stay up to date with advancements in onboard services and travel catering. Some of the industry’s most sought after names will host interactive sessions including culinary demonstrations, product tastings and insights into key topics, including vegetarian and vegan meals onboard, a tea masterclass and African cuisine.

Archana Sharma, WTCE Event Manager commented: “The US on-board services industry is poised for considerable growth as passenger numbers on air, rail and cruise all increase. WTCE has become the global meeting place for the travel catering and onboard services industry and there’s no doubt that the show will offer US and Canadian visitors an unrivalled opportunity to discuss the latest industry issues, as well as the latest developments in the industry on the show floor.

“Our visitors hail from all four corners of the globe and use the exhibition as a way to meet with colleagues, discuss business deals and stay up to date with the latest trends and innovations. This year we’ve added a new dimension with the introduction of the Travel Retail Zone, allowing our visitors to gain an overview of the entire onboard services industry.”

In addition to the exhibition, the highly regarded Passenger Experience Conference runs on Monday 13th April, the day before the exhibition opens. Acting as the industry’s premier networking and business forum, the core theme for 2015 will be on building flexibility into the cabin experience to satisfy passenger needs and expectations. A dedicated session on hospitality, service and retail will explore how airlines can improve their offering and stay in line with trends on the ground.

After an information-packed day at the conference, delegates can join exhibitors and visitors at the Industry Networking Party where an evening of entertainment and cocktails will allow them to network in a relaxed environment. 

WTCE is co-located with Aircraft Interiors Expo, the world’s largest event dedicated to sourcing the latest innovations, technologies and products for the cabin interiors, inflight entertainment and passenger comfort industries.

“Trap House Stalkin” – Rolling Stone

Leave it to perennial party-man 2 Chainz to turn a song about real-life horror – somebody lurking around a drug house – into a quasi-celebration. As a jittery trap beat shuffles around ominous piano notes, the rapper brags about drinking “Dom Pérignon by the pitcher” and deals barely-subtle sex metaphors about “riding in the trunk” before cutting to this harrowing chorus: “Come get your bitch, she outside my trap house stalkin’.” Featured rappers Young Dolph and motor-mouth maniac Cap 1 play it more soberly (save a sex rhyme or two), adding to the drama and making for a promising preview of 2 Chainz’s upcoming TRU Jack City mixtape.


A decade after Gwen Stefani and Pharrell collaborated on dance-floor banger "Hollaback Girl," they're steeping their emotions on a pop-reggae allegory about a bear with an identity crisis for their contribution to the Paddington soundtrack. As improbable as the premise sounds, parents can enjoy it almost as much as their kids. It's even moderately
