Live from the ICA on NTS, a mid-year roundup of events, albums and artists.
Back in May, RA and NTS teamed up for a day of programming from the ICA in London. The idea was simple: bring a handful of RA's writers, favorite artists and promoters down to chat and play music over the East London broadcaster's airwaves. We kicked off the day with a Critics Roundtable—the first one we've ever recorded live, and the first roundtable in quite awhile to feature a proper mid-year roundup. RA editor Ryan Keeling lead the discussion, with associate editor Will Lynch, news editor Aaron Coultate, tech editor Jordan Rothlein and longtime contributor Stephen Titmus each coming to ICA with a list of favorite events, albums and artists from the first half of 2014. We kept it pretty loose, but as you can imagine, everyone had quite a bit to say. If you missed the live broadcast, here's the roundtable presented in full.
