Cultural life: Alison Moyet, singer

'We have Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' Push The Sky Away on vinyl pretty much on rotation right now. Sublime.'

Music

Elbow's Leaders Of The Free World is ever close at hand, and I really like Junip's eponymous album. We recently reinstalled the record player. It is an entirely different listening experience to that which we have become accustomed to, and it is still the physical thrill that it used to be. At home we have Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' Push The Sky Away on vinyl pretty much on rotation right now. Sublime.

Films

Last month, I saw Ben Wheatley's Fields In England at the cinema on the beach, and then I went to see his other film Sightseers. I liked it a lot. Violently dark – the ending both surprised me and yet seemed a natural choice. I recently revisited Dog Tooth which is completely out there and has you laughing despite yourself.

Books

I had to settle for audio books recently. Hilary Mantel's Bring Up The Bodies and C J Sansom's Shardlake series is read by Anton Lesser, who is a truly brilliant narrator.

Television

I like my, TV in box sets. Nurse Jackie, The Wire, Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad – I do everything. Alan Partridge, The Office and Extras. Veep is brilliant and I love Hunderby.

Alison Moyet's new single 'Changeling' is out now. She performs at the Royal Albert Hall, London SW7 (rah.com), on 3 April 2014.(alisonmoyet.com)
