New release bonanza! Everybody’s long-awaited favorites are released today. Some thought we might not get a new LP from Airiel before the next extinction-level event, but ours is a just God. Molten Young Lovers is out today on Shelflife, and Airiel (pictured above, in a throwback to their boy band days) delivers all they’ve promised, with change to spare. If you’ve not got it yet, we’ll try to convince you this weekend. Jockeying for position is the new LP from Dead Leaf Echo, Beyond Desire. In advance of their rigorous touring schedule (when are they not on tour, serving the fan base?), these new songs give you a whole new set of lyrics to learn for the sing-along. The new album from Walking Misery is out, and we’ve been waiting for it. If you don’t know why we’re buzzing, we’ll try to school you. Plus new music from Beaches, Creature in the Spiral, Dayzed, Double Jackal, Godmother, Here Knows When, Motorcade, Purepleaser, Shimmerance, Sound of Ceres, Sun Scream, Tide Bends, and a sparkling single from Soundwire that serves as a glistening introduction to this band’s brilliant soundscape.There’s nowt unlucky about this Friday the 13th weekend!
That’s in addition to last weekend’s fresh adds, including Pia Fraus, The Daysleepers, Candace, Tearjerker, Submeet, Biltmore Dive, A Thousand Hours, Cloakroom, Lanark, Secret Meadow, Vast Asteroid, Zombie Girlfriend, Ysgol Sul, Nurse, Tomorrow Forever, To The Wedding, Surf Rock is Dead, Yumi Zouma, Butterbeer, KITT vs KARR, Matthew and Me, and so much more. More music than weekend.
New Tracks Weekend kicks off 8 pm Eastern, 5 pm Pacific, and continuing through Sunday at midnight Eastern, 9 Pacific. It’s the first weekend we’ll spin some of these tracks, and may be the last weekend for some others. Remember, you can listen listen via the station page at DKFM, on Shoutcast, and on TuneIn Radio for iPhone/Android/Windows. Plus we have our branded apps for Apple’s iOS, Android and Blackberry: listeners can vote thumbs-up/thumbs-down on all the new tracks, helping us determine what graduates to permanent rotation. Your voice counts! Or load up the “Internet Radio” tab of your iTunes desktop client, and you’ll find DKFM Shoegaze Radio under ‘Alternative’. You can even keep up with the new tracks and artists you may have missed, as we’re live-tweeting every track on our sub-Twitter DKFMTracks account. Now you’ll know what you heard, or catch up on what you missed. Keep up with our new Facebook group for real-time discussions of what you’ve heard, and sound off!
And, as always, thanks for listening, and thank you for your support!
