With her debut album, the California-based Busch invites us to enter her strange and wonderful universe: ethereal, morbid but also poetic - it's a sort of musical and feminine equivalent to the films of Tim Burton. The background sound experiments allow Busch's crystalline voice to create a peculiar atmosphere of "sad cheerfulness". Melodies are both intriguing and delicate. As with most female singers, comparisons to Kate Bush are inevitable. But this Busch is anything but another pale copy.

"I am a commercial writer and I'm proud of that," said Alabama-born Michael McDowell, "I think it is a mistake to try to write for the ages." His gothic deep-South novels appeared mainly as paperbacks in the golden age of the throwaway read, the early 1980s, but there's something about them that remains to haunt the reader.

The 17-year-old Mia Wasikowska went tête-à-tête with Gabriel Byrne in the HBO psychoanalyst drama 'In Treatment' and emerged with a profile in top health. In the show she plays a teenage tearaway who seeks help after a motorcycle accident; as the weeks pass, more and more of her personal demons come out of the closet and the full extent of Wasikowska's remarkable range becomes apparent. British audiences will get their first chance to see why directors are clamouring to cast her when Ed Zwick's war drama 'Defiance' is released this week. The young actress plays a Holocaust survivor who is romantically linked with a soldier played by Jamie Bell. Arriving soon after is Mira Nair's star-studded biopic on Amelia Earhart, where the high-flying actress plays a rival pilot. If that were not enough, she's currently filming in the UK, playing Alice in Tim Burton's adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic text, but it's Wasikowska herself who should be in wonderland.
