On UKNY at 11 tonight, cool new British releases from a diverse batch of artists, like Scottish luminaries and Nirvana favorites The Vaselines; French-warbling, Glasgow-based chanteuse Ella the Bird (pictured); Birmingham's Laura Mvula, backed by a 52-piece Dutch orchestra; and London's Grumbling Fur, a duo that's neither tetchy or hirsute—but definitely psychedelic.

That's 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.
