Over the last two visits that Melbourne-based Julia Jacklin has made to FUV's Studio A for sessions, in 2016 and again in 2019, she segued from examining her life in her early twenties, to eyeing an even grander scope of the world at large, with muscular, inventive and insightful lyrics and production. Her third album, Pre Pleasure, comes out on August 26 and judging by the lush handful of songs she's released from it so far, it might well be the major breakthrough album she's long deserved. Even more intriguing — she headed to Montréal to record this new album, working with an array of folks who've also worked with The Weather Station's Tamara Lindeman, including producer Marcus Paquin. On "UKNY" at 11 tonight, another song from Julia's next release.

Also, more very dry humor from Dry Cleaning, who've announced their second album, Stumpwork, for this autumn, and Hull's bdrmm have released a handsome, melancholy single that touches on frontman Ryan Smith's personal strife. New Zealand's The Beths, London's lower-case fans beabadoobee (at Radio City on July 26) and black midi (at Central Park on July 24), and sunset song from Kate Bush, who is having a very bright day in the sun—and on US and UK charts—this summer.

British and international releases late night on "UKNY" on 90.7 FM, streaming online and found in the Weekend Archives too.
