Never mind that forecast for snow next week. It's officially spring and on tonight's UKNY at 11, a sampling of some very good albums to be released this season from Ben Watt (pictured), Brian Eno and Karl Hyde, Gruff Rhys and Sohn. Plus, a truly beautiful single from the Canadian-born, New York-raised and Leeds-based producer Fold and a Commonwealth Cut from Australian quasi-bluesman D.D. Dumbo.
That's 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.
