Vampire Weekend - Father of the Bride Music Album Reviews

Vampire Weekend return with a shaggy, sprawling double album all about rebirth, contentment, and the reclamation of light.
From the beginning, Vampire Weekend were winners: charming, relatively lighthearted; Columbia students one year, festival headliners the next. They had cute sweaters and smart jokes; they wrote with wit and curiosity about the tapestry of privileged life; they carried themselves with an almost infuriating sparkle. But they were also manic, weird, and provocatively cross-cultural, mixing up digital dancehall and string sections, Latin punk and raga in ways that didn’t quite fit. And despite their superficial politeness, there was something deeply antagonistic about them, the vestigial bite of suburban kids who grew up loving punk and hardcore but never quite felt entitled to its anger, the indie-rock band bent on breaking up the monopoly rock held over guitar-based music.

Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Review

Tired of getting heaters and fans in and out of the loft? Well the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool is useful all year round.

Should I Buy The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool?
This might be Dyson's most expensive fan heater but it's worth the investment if you're looking for something premium that can do a lot and do it extremely well.

This is an air purifier, cooling fan and heater in one with almost endless settings and functions meaning it’s a shame you’ll have to choose just one room to put it in.

Price When Reviewed
  • $649

As you probably know by now, Dyson doesn’t just make vacuum cleaners but also a range of other sleek devices for the home. It’s latest is a fan, heater and air purifier in one. Here’s our Pure Hot+Cool review.

It’s perhaps hard to choose a fan or a heater with so many bland generic designs out there. They’re all the same anyway, aren’t they? Turns out they’re not and the Dyson is like the Bugatti of the fan heater world.

Price
It’s perhaps no surprise that the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool isn’t the cheapest of smart home devices on the market. In fact, you might balk at its £549/$649 price tag but there’s a lot going on here so it could well be worth the investment.

You can buy it directly from Dyson in the UK or retailers like AO. In the US, you can also go to Dyson or Amazon.

This is Dyson’s most expensive fan/heater and we’ll explain all in this review. 

Design & Build
If you’ve seen Dyson’s other fans or heaters then the Pure Hot+Cool follows the form. It’s a sleek and distinctive style that’s quite futuristic in true Dyson fashion – it wouldn’t look out of place in the film Passengers.

It’s tall, yet compact and has that now iconic loop design where the centre is completely hollow. It’s no magic trick, you can stick your hand right through it.

The lower part looks similar to other models, like the Pure Cool Tower, with a silver cylinder (other colours are available in the US) covered in small holes. Inside this section sits the filters. We found them a little bit tricky to install at first – it seemed like there wasn’t enough space – but we got there in the end.

Once the filters are in and you’ve found a suitable power outlet you can get going.
One feature the Pure Hot+Cool brings vs its predecessor (the Hot+Cool Link) in terms of the design is that a small LCD screen sits on the front. This is really useful, giving you a nice way of interacting with the device. It it also on the Pure Cool Tower. 

Using the remote control, which attaches to the top with a magnet like other models, you can flick through a variety of different displays on the screen. It can tell you basic things like the current and target temperature, various details about the air quality and more.

Because this is all in real-time, the only thing to bear in mind here is that some screens take a while to load information while the air is tested so can show a spinning arrow for a while.

What we'd really like is some more buttons on the fan itself, so you can make basic adjustments without needing the remote or app. Even just temperature and fan speed would be helpful.

Features & Performance
The price of the Pure Hot+Cool is somewhat given away in the name. This is three devices in one offering an air purifier, cooling fan and heater. There will be no chucking this into the loft for half the year.

If you’re used to a basic fan or heater with perhaps three different settings, the Pure Hot+Cool is a bit like jumping from driving a car to flying a plane. There are 10 fan speeds and you can set the temperature between 0 and 37 celsius (we imagine the US model comes in fahrenheit but the site doesn't say).

There’s plenty more adjustment too, with a tilt function (surprising for large device) and up to 350 degrees of oscillation. 

If you just want it to purify the air without blasting you, there’s a diffuse mode which essentially means air is kicked out the back instead.

As you might hope at this price, performance is excellent with a smooth almost jetstream of air doing the job whether that’s heating or cooling. We found the Pure Hot+Cool managed to heat a cold room (a medium sized lounge) to the high teens (celsius) in around 20-30 minutes.

The device is very quiet in everything in does, even at a high fan speed so if you’re often annoyed by a loud fan then this will be a blissful move. There’s even a night mode which ensures the quietest settings and also dims the screen.

What you can’t see, or sense, is the filters doing their job but the screen or app (see below) will tell you all the hard work it’s doing. Our test environment wasn’t particularly challenging but if you live in a city centre then you’ll notice much more what the device is doing to your air quality.

Dyson says that it captures 99.95 percent of ultrafine particles such as allergens and pollutants. We can’t verify that but it sounds good and one of the displays will let you know how they are doing in terms of lifespan.

Like the Pure Hot+Cool Link, you can hook your phone or tablet up to the device. This added smart element is great giving you another way to control the device. Of course, it’s more faff than the remote control for quick changes but you can do things like set the heater going so a room is nice and warm when you get home.

Verdict
This is of course, a very expensive fan heater but it’s also a cooling fan and air purifier as well so it’s a year-round product.

The main addition compared to the Hot+Cool Link is the small LCD screen on the front so you can save a little bit if this is a mere luxury you can do without.

Screen or not, the Pure Hot+Cool not a jack of all trades, master of none. It’s excellent at everything it turns its hand to. If you can afford one, you won’t be disappointed.

Should I buy the Nokia 7.1?
The Nokia 7.1 is a familiar mid-range phone for the end of 2018: a notch, big bottom chin and dual cameras. But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.

Detective Pikachu Movie Review

Is Detective Pikachu the very best, like no film ever was? We review the first ever live action Pokémon movie
Should I Buy the Detective Pikachu?
Detective Pikachu could have been a disaster, but instead it's really a bit of a delight. A game cast, robust world-building, and a sharp script combine to produce a film that should appeal equally to new fans and nostalgia-driven millennials.
It's a low bar to clear, but this is the best videogame movie yet - by some way.
