At 11 tonight on UKNY, expect a stack of very new (or recent) releases from British bands and artists headed to New York next week or in the very near future—like Basement Jaxx, Cymbals and Jamie xx—as well as sunny and sublime summertime sounds from the jaunty Bologna-London dance duo M+A, Bristol's dreamy Meadowlark (pictured) and majestic Leeds quintet Dancing Years.
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.
