What's on the LeftLion Stereo?

Find out what our Music Editor has been stuffing in his tabs this month...

Friends of Friends – Crossroads
High-gloss indie-rock that’s so shiny you can imagine the band doing their hair in front of it.

Keto – Blackened Pool
Further evidence that Leah Sinead, under the guise of Keto, is one of Nottingham’s best songwriters. Here, minor key melancholia goes for a nighttime swim among tumbling piano and yearning violin.

Josh Wheatley – Chemicals
This big-production brooder finds the singer-songwriter in contemplative mood with only his loneliness and mournful guitars for company. If you see him around town, give him a hug for us.

Kagoule – Monsieur Automaton
The band’s latest single is an angular and punchy kick to the knackers, accompanied by a suitably lo-fi surrealist video made by their drummer Lawrence.

Nartz – Normal
A swaggy and confident, yet slightly low-key track from the CRS alumnus.

Hip Priests – Scene is a Crime
High-octane punk-rock with in-your-face guitars that roar like a jet engine and spittle-flecked snarled vocals.

Zed Boys – 16 (featuring Snowy)
A summit of Notts grime heads that crowbars in mentions of Bingham and Ripley for true realness.

Crosa Rosa – Sweety
A swirling garage-rock psych jam that comes on like Tame Impala’s hyperactive little brother.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
