This week, we'll look at sister cities. Not in any formal sense but closely related nonetheless. We have four bands and four cities whose cultural and artistic proximity could just as easily be one. They are Mavro, Chill Factor-5, Tricky and Bubblelawn. I'm Jim Nye
We'll begin in the U.K. and Brighton with Mavro and the cinematic beats of 'Gum San'
