Agenda: Liberty and Levi's; Cloud Boat; Daft Punk; Land of Kids; Shake Shack

 

Fashion: The L words

You might imagine a first letter was all that Liberty and Levi's had in common – but that's what makes the brands' partnership for a new capsule collection all the more exciting: employing the former's floral prints and the latter's denim cuts, the 15 pieces range from jackets and shirts to miniskirts and boyfriend jeans. It's available now in Liberty's flagship London store, before being rolled out in May. From £75, liberty.co.uk, levi.com

Face to watch: Cloud Boat

Prepare to swoon over this London electro-folk duo and their amniotic, fragile sound, not least if you are a fan of either James Blake or Bon Iver. Check out new track "Youthern" ahead of their May debut album: bit.ly/10d3GeF

Lexpionage: Sporkmanteau, n.

A combination of two or more words into one new word by the food industry/ people who like eating, eg. drunch (a meal between lunch and dinner), babyccino (a capuccino without the coffee), spork (spoon and fork)

Social networking: Match the tweet to the star

Jonathan Ross, Paddy Considine, Richard E Grant, Stephen Mangan

App watch: My Meal Mate

Diet sensibly with this new NHS-approved diary app which allows you to monitor your food intake and regular exercise output while setting weight-loss targets – and was shown to be a more effective tool for shedding the pounds than a paper diary in a recent university trial. Free from NHS Choices website and Google Play store

On the radar: Because some things are still worth getting excited about…

Music: Daft Punk

Sure, there were Bowie and JT, but the real music comeback of the year is just kicking off. The single "Get Lucky" is splendid; the album is due 21 May. Now to know whether their pyramid will grace the Pyramid stage…

Festivals: Land of Kids

East London festival Land of Kings is back on the May Bank Holiday, but most exciting is this kids' offshoot; the programme includes theatrical geniuses Punchdrunk and family ravers Disco Loco. 6 May, landofkids.co.uk

Food: Shake Shack

Thought you'd had your fill of burger joints? Well, we think we can make room for one more, what with the announcement that the revered US chain is launching in Covent Garden over the summer. @shakeshackuk
