EMA will be taking up residency in the Barbican from the 5th to 7th July, presenting an entirely new work - part installation, part performance - called Sacred Objects from Suburban Homes. We managed to get some free time from Anderson to talk through the project and its intentions. [read more]
We're lucky enough to have a lot of photographer friends who wade bravely behind the scenes and into live shows with some of our favourite artists right now. Sometimes they meet artists in fun places like in the park or a nice coffee shop and take photos there. [read more]
Despite a demanding tour schedule, that's propelled the Detroit rapper around Europe recently, presenting his Dark Sky Paradise tour throughout a string of sold-out shows and crowded festivals, Sean takes his time with each motion. [read more]
So what have HEALTH been up to? A lot more than most, actually. Opportunities can present themselves in strange ways and when the band went for dinner with a rep from Rockstar videogames on the premise to discuss writing a track for the Grand Theft Auto series, it actually turned out to be something bigger.

So here they are: the Top 10 Albums of this current quarter (we're talking literal quarters, not financial).
