We’re nearing the end of the year and the last of 2009’s big music releases are on the way. First up, we pick out two of 2010’s hottest bands; The Soft Pack and Lissy Trullie, although they don’t yet have albums ready for popular consumption. Instead we review new releases from Wolfmother, Muse, Paramore, Mr Hudson and Editors, amongst others

On the silver screen, we preview some of film’s most anticipated upcoming releases; A Serious Man, Inception, The Lovely Bones, Tron Legacy, A Christmas Carol and Up In The Air. In theatres, Up at last makes it over to UK shores while Ricky Gervais’ The Invention Of Lying, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, 9 and The Goods are also given our critical eye.

To round matters off, our art and style sections are huge this month. The Little Friends Of Printmaking offer up a handful of illustrated baddies, Arielle Nadel follows little Danbo around on his travels and Hüseyin Yilmaz spends a couple of weeks in Turkey. Cover story Lauren Ward is off the circus, only the lion tamer and his friends have already gone home for the winter. Carl Heindl takes his attention down to the railway tracks for a little flower picking, and last but not least, Matías Troncoso shows there isn’t always a good side to a bit of rough and tumble, though it can make for a stunning shoot.
