Autumn is ahead — and a cascade of autumn and winter releases — and on "UKNY" at 11p.m. tonight, a handful of highlights for the months ahead. Nubya Garcia's remix album, SOURCE ⧺ WE MOVE, arrives on October 22. The London composer and saxophonist reached out to folks like Moses Boyd, KeiyaA, and Georgia Anne Muldrew to take nine tracks from her 2021 Mercury Prize-nominated debut album, Source, expanding it beyond its jazz roots to house, drum and bass, and more. Garcia will also be opening for Khruangbin in the States next spring, including two dates at Radio City Music Hall on March 9 and 10.
Yard Act's debut album The Overload is the next step for the Leeds band that released a rock-solid self-titled debut EP late last year, showing off their wit, political bite, and post-punk swagger. The Overload, out on January 7, already promises to be one of the most exciting, savagely funny releases of 2022. And Brisbane's Hatchie returns with a shimmering new single, her first for new label Secretly Canadian and hinting at more album news ahead.
Also in tonight's mix, recent releases from London's Joy Orbison, Brescia-born and Manchester-based Julia Bardo, Glasgow's Poster Paints, and Welsh-born, London-based Art School Girlfriend.
