Tonight's UKNY at 11 has new releases galore from Temples, Metronomy, China Bears, the Brand New Heavies, and Tunng — the latter have an upcoming compilation of B-sides and other obscure treats, called This is Tunng ... Magpie Bites and Other Cuts, due out on June 28.
London's Little Simz and South African-born, London-based Nakhane will be in NYC for shows this month — Little Simz at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 23 and Nakhane at Baby's All Right on June 20 — so we'll dip into their latest albums too.
