FUV continues its live broadcast of the Clearwater Festival on Sunday afternoon and on UKNY tonight at 11, a preview of another great music and arts festival, Glastonbury. That iconic English extravaganza kicks off five days of sunny (or rain-soaked) bliss next week, June 25-29. We'll hear some of the disparate bands and artists making their way to Somerset's Worthy Farm this year, like Aquilo, Kasabian, Maya Jane Coles and The Rails, the folk rock duo of guitarist James Walbourne and Kami Thompson, who happens to be the daughter of Linda and Richard Thompson (who played at Clearwater earlier tonight). Also, brand new releases from the soulfully sleek Jessie Ware and rousing indie rockers Happyness.
Festival season is fully underway and on tonight's UKNY at 11, a sneak peek at a few of the emerging artists and bands headed for Glastonbury later this month like Londonderry's The Wood Burning Savages, 19-year-old Londoner Izzy Bizu and the South Australian sisters of Echo and the Empress (pictured). Also, new releases from Jon Hopkins with Lulu James, The Proper Ornaments and others.
UKNY stretches from Glasgow to Leeds to Oxford on tonight's show at 11, featuring Holy Esque, Glass Animals (pictured), Robyn Hitchcock, Fold, Kate Tempest and others. Plus, the new single from Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor begs for a gentle segue into a classic song.
At 11 tonight on UKNY, a week's worth of earworms and segues that made sense in dreams. We'll preview a few of the artists bound for next weekend's Governors Ball Music Festival here in New York and Field Day in London and explore new releases from Wolf Alice (pictured), Childhood, Gruff Rhys, La Roux, Big Deal and more.
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.
