Marilyn, the last sessions

As a major Monroe fan, I totally get the ongoing fascination, but riffling through transcripts from her therapy sessions for prime time TV entertainment seems totally unethical; like some kind of gross psychic autopsy. I detest the idea that the death of a face/body who has become a complex part of  cultural history/iconography give us any kind of ownership rights or free-pass into their heads.

"You make it look so good/the way you put it like that"

My first First Sight feature for The Guardian Film&Music is out today, featuring Emika. She's a Berlin-based producer, originally from the UK. She makes creepy, seductive, bass-heavy songs. Get to know:

"Fuck tha upper class"

Is that the same bed she tied up Diplo on?

Ghostpoet interview

I chatted to Ghostpoet a lickle while back. We talked about comfort food, abstract rhymes,  anxiety of the existential kind, and his debut album Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam (which is really rather good). Click click below for full reading pleasure.
