London singer and songwriter Izzy Bizu, who did an FUV Live session for FUV a couple of years ago, has been looking ahead to her second album, the glimmer of which is finally here via her Glita EP, her first release in three years. On "UKNY" at 11 tonight, something from Izzy's latest release, plus the return of Summer Camp's Elizabeth Sankey and Jeremy Warmsley, preparing their first album in four years, called Romantic Comedy (which also serves as a soundtrack to Elizabeth's new feature documentary about movies steeped in that very thing, which premiered at SXSW in March and will be at Sheffield Doc/Fest in June).

Also, Norwich newcomers Marigolds, Glasgow's Wojtek the Bear, Denbighshire's Omaloma, and an FUV Live session with Auckland's The Beths.

And my math might be all wrong (it's very possible), but it seems to be "UKNY"'s 300th show this evening.

Catch up to #299 and #298 in the Weekend Archives now, and #300 after broadcast.
