This weekend marks the unofficial start of steamy summertime, whether you're ready for it or not. On tonight's UKNY at 11, a batch of newly-minted British releases with a starry, dancing-in-the-moonlight vibe from Ibibio Sound Machine, Eno · Hyde, Tourist with Lianne La Havas, Basement Jaxx, Oliver Wilde and much more. Plus, tonight's Commonwealth Cut from Nistha Raj cuts a path from Texas to New Dehli, India with an eye to Brooklyn this July.
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.
Away for the long weekend? You can find UKNY in the FUV archives up to two weeks after broadcast.
