Crossing genres on America's final trip-hop frontier
TWO trip-hop, genre-crossing acts from America turned up at the Bodega – Kilo Kish and female-led R&B/electronic group The Internet.
This co-headline show was part of a European tour but Nottingham, we were repeatedly assured, offered "the best audience by far".
Kilo Kish, first up with her DJ partner Kiddy Kash, played new single Navy, bopping up and down before passing the microphone to hipsters in the crowd who sang back to her.
She offered the crowd some sultry rap on Trappin, while It's You showcased her flawless vocals.

Backed by his four-piece band, Syd The Kid sang They Say before informing us "this is our favourite place – we've been here twice."
Syd teased: "You won't hear the single off our next album yet, but you will soon."
That preceded their final song Fastlane, which showed off her soulful vocals.
Both acts invited the crowd on stage to dance and sing with them and duet together – a rare treat for Nottingham fans.
