A soft, breezy summer record, Tudo lives up to Gilberto's status as a member of Brazilian musical royalty. It strikes the perfect mix of chill and melancholy that's become her specialty.

UKNY On FUV Goes To The Movies On August 9

Two excellent new music documentaries bookended The Film Society at Lincoln Center's second annual Sound + Vision Festival which concluded on Wednesday night: "Beautiful Noise" and "Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets." Tonight at 11, I'll have sets inspired by both of those films (watch the trailers below). "Beautiful Noise," directed by Eric Green and produced/edited by Sarah Ogletree, dwells on the influential movement of music that firmly eschews the term "shoegaze" but, via bands like Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine, still finds common ground in dense, visceral and soaring sonic structures. The second film, "Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets," which also screened via Brooklyn's Rooftop Films, is directed by Florian Habicht with guidance from Jarvis Cocker. It's an affectionate, quirky look at Pulp's final concert back in 2012 in its hometown of Sheffield and not only focuses on Cocker and his bandmates, but the people of that northern Yorkshire city.

The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For August 9

Immediately following FUV's live broadcast of St. Vincent from Celebrate Brooklyn tonight, "The Bottomless Pit" will be joined in progress. Although tonight's show will be truncated, abridged, etc., due to the concert, it will be a repeat of a tribute that I did for drummer Scott Asheton, who passed away on March 14, 2014. It's one of my favorite shows of all and features some of the greatest rock music of all time by The Stooges, the Scott Morgan Band, Sonic's Rendezvous Band and Dark Carnival. I keep my mouth completely closed until the very last couple minutes of the show.
