Here's what our music editor has been sticking in his tabs this month...
Alice Short – Harvey Weinstein is a Prick
Over sparse, unsettling and minimal music, the rapper takes the film producer to task and, with brutal honesty, tells it like it is.
Elmz XIX – Sound Like This
Up-and-coming rapper and producer makes playful boasts, while also featuring best use of airhorn this side of a Tim Westwood radio show.
In Isolation – TRAPPIST 1 (A Space Anthem)
The perennial mopers’ new one is a widescreen romantic ode to a red dwarf star. It shouldn’t work, but it does, coming off like Interpol with a PhD.
One Giant Causeway – The Best Things
Anguished alternative rock from the West Bridgford five-piece who know how to make a stadium-sized racket.
Richard Snow – Slip On Through
“Long lost” faithful rendition of Beach Boys psych r‘n’b groover that swings in similar fashion to the original.
Georgie – Hard Times
The first new music we’ve had from the NG Stevie Nicks in ages sees her release a double A-side, the first of which is this mellow introspective piano number.
Listen to the tune on Spotify.
The Rainbow Stripes – Can’t Stop Counting the Rainbows
Fuzzy blues rock made for kids. Like The White Stripes if they soundtracked Sesame Street.
Lone – Arc
With each release, the producer seems to add more colour and sounds to his musical palette. Arc is like flipping through a Dulux Colour chart, with each new page conjuring up new sensations.
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?
