We have Sky Larkin in session, some fab tunes and Marc on the wheels of steel. Do you need anything else for a pleasant evening in with the radio? I throw down the gauntlet .. sir or madam.

Leeds indie punks Sky Larkin first crossed the Pennines to visit the Riley studio back in 2007. Now they're returning for another 6 Music session - will they ever learn?

The band's latest single "Still Windmills", is out in August. Its a harbinger for a full album "Kaleide", out later in the year on the fabled Wichita label. It was recorded in Seattle with Sleater-Kinney and Death Cab For Cutie producer John Goodmanson.

Sky Larkin have a taste for eclectic cover versions. In the past they've covered Bloc Party, Bruce Springsteen, Queens of the Stone Age, Jake Thackeray and cult Leeds band Mother Vulpine.
