Festival season is fully underway and on tonight's UKNY at 11, a sneak peek at a few of the emerging artists and bands headed for Glastonbury later this month like Londonderry's The Wood Burning Savages, 19-year-old Londoner Izzy Bizu and the South Australian sisters of Echo and the Empress (pictured). Also, new releases from Jon Hopkins with Lulu James, The Proper Ornaments and others.
Please join me on UKNY, Saturday nights at 11p.m. EST, following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
