Recently a lot of the buzz has been moving away from Tyler, The Creator and on to fellow Odd Future member Frank Ocean, who first forged a career writing songs for Justin Bieber, John Legend, and Beyonce Knowles. In his latest video - for the song "Acura Integurl" (which is decidedly more emotional than the music he produces with Odd Future) - Ocean teamed up with director Dave Wilson and filmed a scenic drive through the hills in an Acura NSX. Watch below.

Dreamed is the bedroom recording project of Denton-based Jessica Minshew. Her lo-fi music is simple yet melodic and her hazy songs seem to be made for the word "atmospheric". We haven't heard anything about Minshew signing a record deal for now, but looking at her Soundcloud, she must have enough material for a debut LP, so stay tuned! You can download "Izumi" below.

Another lavish festival of film in France was wrapped up yesterday evening with work shy genius Terrence Malick picking up the Palme d'Or for his film The Tree of Life. Tracing the life of a boy from childhood to adulthood as he attempts to reconcile the beauty of the world around him with the darkness that life brings. The film stars Brad Pitt and is released in the UK later in the year.

Despite the win for The Tree of Life Malick managed to miss out on a coveted Best Director nod, with the Robert De Niro led Cannes jury picking Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn for his work on synth pop enthused, existential, exploitation flick Drive.

With Lars Von Trier unwittingly taking Melancholia out of Palme d'Or contention with his outburst earlier in the festival, it was left to Kirsten Dunst to win back some glory for the much vaunted movie - which she did by walking away with the Best Actress award - whilst Jean Dujardin won Best Actor for The Artist.

Meloncholia, The Artist and Drive will be released in the UK later in the year.

Produced to co-incide with the opening of the Mondrian SoHo hotel in New York, Love Is Like Life But Longer is a 10-minute short film directed by Manhattan-based photographer and filmmaker Poppy de Villeneuve. Written by Simon Van Booy, the film stars up-and-coming actor Jeremy Strong as a blind young author who falls in love with a nun (played by Maya Kazan) when they meet trying to find the hotel lift.

When speaking to DazedDigital about the short-film, de Villeneuve said:

"Hotels are transient places, they are for new beginnings and become your home for a short period of time, they are also like a blank canvas, anything can happen there. I think that is romantic."

Poppy de Villeneuve regularly shoots for The New York Times, The Telegraph and Vogue, and has been commissioned by Burberry, Jimmy Choo, V&A Museum, Wallpaper*, Monocle and Nowness in the past.
