"On the cover: Gaika (The London based agent provocateur marshalls speculative fiction, politically charged anger and militant beats against an increasingly inhospitable capital). Inside the issue: Ian Brighton (Breaking a 39 year silence with his first album of new material since 1977, the UK improve guitarist discusses his grandfather's bell-ringing, the tyranny of discord, spirits passing through space, and other shaping forces on his music); The Primer: Anarcho punk (The dogged persistence of UK punk's radical arm has ensured the global survival of its spirit across a variety of media. Louis Pattison presents a user's guide to the music of resistance); Invisible Jukebox: Islam Chipsy (The Egyptian shaabi master says 'EEK' to The Wire's mystery record selection); Klara Lewis (The Swedish composer defies darkness to pursue strange beauty); Global Ear: Snowdonia: The Welsh peaks conceal abundant potential for revelation); Telebossa (The Berlin duo decode Brazilian popular song from a distance)."
