This month we are on much safer ground with our definition of a ‘classic’ album, as we demand that our office virtual assistant play Radiohead’s OK Computer and we get our geek on – turning our attention to the rise of the marketing machines.

Like it or not, post-GDPR truly is the age of consent and as we dug into the record box at the GDPR after party, this issue’s album title chose itself: The Age of Consent by Bronksi Beat.
