UKNY For August 25

Autumn is less than a month away and on UKNY at 11 tonight, new releases that settle sweetly (or sharply) into these breezy, end-of-summer nights from Rosie Lowe, Dry Cleaning, Underworld, Lauran Hibberd, Gruff Rhys, Working Men's Club, and the Icelandic duo Hugar.
And in the spirit of this past Thursday's all-day 1979 excursion, a few gems from that year as well.
If you find it tough to stay up late on Sunday nights, you can always catch up to UKNY on demand in the Weekend Archives.
