It’s been a while since Sky Larkin have been mentioned around these parts. In February last year I saw them supporting Los Campesinos! at the sadly missed Spitz, and was impressed by the noise that they made, along with the cute guitar poses and madcap drumming. More than a year and a half later the Leeds trio are on my radar again, courtesy of a couple of tracks leaked out by their new label Wichita. Seems like they’re still on fine form, busy channelling the spirit of classic American slacker indie such as Pavement and Guided By Voices and marrying it to Northern wit and charm. Promises well for future full-length recordings.

For a bonus, here's their ace 7 inch single One of Two from last year.
