This is the last full weekend of summer — deep sigh — and tonight on UKNY at 11, some of Britain's most intriguing new fall releases from just-emerging bands like Temples, Blaenavon and Flyte. Also, the veteran duo Zero 7 returns after a four-year hiatus with a fresh sound and new vocalists.
The Commonwealth Cut is in Ontario, Canada for slinky Jessy Lanza and since the 2013 Barclaycard Mercury Prize was announced earlier this week, expect a couple of nominees in the mix.
Join me for UKNY Saturday nights at 11 following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
