    The Cover Story: Jam City

    The Cover Story: Jam City

    The audio version of our Issue 142 cover story, featuring Jam City.
    Jam City’s 2012 debut album rerouted UK club music, but a series of stylistic heel-turns and A-list collaborations in the years since have seen the self-proclaimed postmodern baby live up to his own billing. Now, the producer is returning to his roots to celebrate the transcendent power of a messy night out on his next record, 'EFM'.
    Words by Will Pritchard and narration by Keziah Wenham-Kenyon.

    The Cover Story: Caroline Polachek

    The Cover Story: Caroline Polachek

    The audio version of our Issue 140 cover story, featuring Caroline Polachek.
    “I feel like culture in general is suffering from a need for everything to be literal. It’s almost like we’ve forgotten that’s never why we were interested in art in the first place”
    Caroline Polachek is no stranger to drama. Guided by her breathtaking voice, the experimental pop artist has written operas, earned a Grammy nomination and even inspired a TikTok dance craze. For her next chapter, she’s surrendering to chaos.
    This cover story was written by Jake Indiana and narrated by Keziah Wenham-Kenyon.

    Bars of Reassurance: Poetry and Grime

    Bars of Reassurance: Poetry and Grime

    The relationship between UK poetry and music is up for discussion in this podcast episode, recorded live in November 2022 at Bars of Reassurance: Poetry and Grime.
    The live conversation, presented by Royal Society of Literature and the Museum of London alongside Crack Magazine, was hosted by producer and writer Tobi Kyeremateng and features poets and storytellers Yomi Ṣode and Kayo Chingonyi. The talk was inspired by the museum’s display, Grime Stories: From the corner to the mainstream, which explored the enduring impact of the genre and its footprint in youth culture today.
    This episode was edited by Keziah Wenham-Kenyon. Yomi Sode's reading of 'Distant Daily Ijó' is courtesy of the T. S. Eliot Prize.
