Music: Kaleide by Sky Larkin * * *

The Leeds trio, fronted by Katie Harkin, have recruited US indie production god John Goodmanson to beef up their music and, while he has helped them hone a more sure-footed sound, some of the band's charm has been lost.

Not that they will worry too much about that, if Anjelica Huston and Spooktacular -- two striking songs here -- push Sky Larkin into the big time.

Goodmanson has fixated on Harkin's riot-grrrl leanings and the fuzzy rock that ensues isn't a million miles from two of his former employers, Sleater-Kinney and Bikini Kill.
