22 June 15 words: llstereo
Find out what we've been listening to this month. It's all Notts and it's all hot. Hold tight, here we go. Scream if you wanna go faster

Kagoule - Gush (Swim Palace Remix)
Former Swimming man, John Sampson, rearranges the DNA of this forthcoming track from the alt-rock trio’s debut album and creates an altogether more trippy creature.

VVV - Tripple VVV
Notts hip hop supergroup featuring Juga-Naut, who we shine the musical spotlight on this issue, alongside fellow wordsmiths, Cappo and Vandal.

The Gorgeous Chans - By The Highway
The B-side to their forthcoming single, Marina & I, is less bombastic than previous outings, perhaps showcasing a more mature side. But it’s still got beautiful chiming guitars, soaring vocals, and the all important saxophone we’ve come to expect from this lot.

Sleaford Mods - Faces To Faces
Taken from a forthcoming split 7” with fellow punk agitprops The Pop Group. An alternative version of a track that will appear on the next SM LP, Key Markets.

Same Streets - Wired
Rabble-rousing rock ‘n’ roll taking its cues directly from the beat groups of the sixties and topped off by snarling vocals from frontman, James Gooch.

Death Party UK - Mark of the Vampire
Influenced by the forties horror film of the same name and with a video filmed in the ruins of Annesley Hall, this is gothabilly at its camp best.

Huskies - North Coast
Recorded by Rory Attwell on his Lightship95 boat/studio and it shows. These indie-pop tykes have never sounded so confident and, well, this good. More of the same please.

Widows - Blue Tina
Growling stoner-rock that could’ve been formed in the Arizona desert, but instead was chiselled from the sandstone rock of Notts.

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?
