Ware (The freeform sounds and spiritual journey of the late saxophonist, as remembered by his colleagues William Parker and Steven Joerg); Peter Brötzmann redux (David Keenan presents further words of wisdom from his extensive interview with the German improviser); Wyrd sounds from the West Country (Matthew Ingram visits Hacker Farm HQ and meets a motley crew of electronic musicians and culture jackers including Farmer Glitch, Kek-W, IX Tab and Kemper Norton); Invisible Jukebox: Pinch (The Bristolian dubstep producer and Tectonic boss has his chest rattled by The Wire's mystery record selection); Global Ear: Mexico City (Gabriel Stargardter hears cumbia sound systems pumping rebel music into the capital's toughest district); Epiphanies (Laina Dawes salutes the heavy music that shaped her identity while growing up as a black female rock fan)."
