UKNY - 02/22/2014
On tonight's mostly encore presentation of UKNY at 11, we'll revisit the music of the twelve shortlisted nominees of last year's Barclaycard Mercury Prize, which was won by James Blake (pictured) for his second album, Overgrown. A prestigious, but also controversial award (as many awards for the arts can be), the Mercury Prize is handed out to a British or Irish artist each year. This evening, we'll hear stellar songs from 2013 nominees like David Bowie, Jon Hopkins, Laura Marling, Foals, Disclosure and more.
On UKNY at 11 tonight, an exploration of some intriguing British female vocalists of the present and past, an eclectic mélange of artists that includes Laura J. Martin, Chlöe Howl (pictured), Laura Mvula, Raissa Khan-Panni of The Mummers and the inimitable Dusty Springfield.
