There is no letup. Impressive new music is coming fast and furious. As the weather turns warm, so do the tones. The new Pia Fraus single/EP is near release via Seksound label, with contributions from scene luminaries like Airiel and Mahogany, and it’s worth the wait. Following two electric performances on American network television, Tennis System dropped their new single early this morning, and it has all the volcanic energy you’ve come to expect from Matty & Co. We’ve got long-awaited new music from Oeil, Cigarettes After Sex, Schonwald, Slow Crush, Terry vs. Tori, Rat Columns, Girlpool, Eternal Something, Telyscopes, Aurora L’Orealis, IS BLISS, and so much more. As usual, more music than weekend!

Not to overlook last weekend’s gems, including Hazel English, Hoops, Say Sue Me, No Vacation, Season of Strangers, Watterson, Antipole, Tinfoil and Tape, The Age of Colored Lizards… we’re fully booked!

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 iOSAndroid and Blackberry: listeners can vote thumbs-up/thumbs-down on all the new tracks, helping us determine what graduates to permanent rotation.

Underway! New Tracks Weekend brings you the freshest new tuneage from Hazel English, Hoops, Say Sue Me, No Vacation, Season of Strangers, Watterson, Antipole, Tinfoil and Tape, The Age of Colored Lizards and much more. We’d give you more preamble than that, but why? The proof’s in the listening! And there’s much here to be enchanted by.

That’s not to pass over last weekend’s newness, including Slowdive, Shelling, Ride, Soon She Said, Mountain States, Fazerdaze, Dream Rimmy, Day Wave, Ethica, Slow Crush, birthdaygirl and ever so much more! Finger on the pulse, we’re on it!

Pity the fools wot must compete with Slowdive this weekend. I mean, right? Label owners and bands marking calendar 6 to 11 months in advance, plotting official release date. Then the Slowdive tsunami hits, and all boats are swept to shore. We empathize. However, it’s our official job to celebrate all the quality new releases, this and every day. So we’ll celebrate Slowdive’s new self-titled album, their first new music in 22 years. Because it is the headline of the year thus far. But we’ll mix in the leading lights whose only misfortune was scheduling against this mammoth release. The new album from Shelling (Japan) is a perfect case in point. Both delicate and torrential, Shelling continues to push the boundaries of their sound on their freshly-issued third full album. Glorious new music from Soon, She Said (France) carves out all the perfect pop hooks, and bathes them in reverb. The new album from Mountain States is propulsive and tuneful, out now on Coaster Records. Regular listener? You’ll surely know Fazerdaze (NZ). The full Morningside LP is out now, and it’s everything you love about them, pressed down and overflowing. Dream Rimmy (Australia) fulfills all early promise with the new Heavy EP, out now. Day Wave keeps churning out the beach pop confections, and Russia’s Ethica bid for shoegaze stardom through their new single and video, just released. Finally, the new singles from birthdaygirl and Slow Crush deserve (nay, demand) your attention. So let’s pull the cork and celebrate!

Not to neglect last weekend’s new newness, as we’re still pushing Ride, Omega Vague, Todavia, Малыш Камю (Malish Kamu), Subsonic Eye, Afor Gashum, The Cult of Lip, Crystales, Red Rosie, Xeresa, Dama Scout, Softer Still, Sheer, Kindling, Kestrels, Malady of Sevendials and Darkswoon. PACKED. IN. TIGHT.

Still recovering from last weekend’s epic Seagaze festival, but we’ve spent most of the week combing through all the impressive new submissions for New Tracks Weekend, and we’re packed. Obviously we’re pushing the new single from Ride, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’re deep into the new albums from Omega Vague, Todavía, Малыш Камю (Malish Kamu), Subsonic Eye and Afor Gashum, plus the new singles from the Cult of Lip (new album and video soon!), Crystales, Red Rosie, Xeresa, Dama Scout, Softer Still, plus the new split EP from station favorites Kindling and Kestrels (someone got the best “K” bands together and said, “hey, let’s do a split!”?), the new Psychic Quarry EP from SHEER, the new extended play from Sustains, and we catch up with Darkswoon and Malady of Sevendials, fresh from their Seagaze Festival performances.

Speaking of which, we’re still pushing the full LP from Fotoform, who put on a sparkly performance for Seagaze attendees. Plus we’re still heavy-dropping tracks from Bugjar (most buzzed track last weekend, hands down), DIV I DED, Northeastern Railroads, Flowerbomb, LLOLLYANNA, Static Daydream, The Infinite Seas, and The Investment. All of the newness.

While we’re dancing the night away at Seagaze Festival 2017 in Seattle, we’re also spinning the freshness. We’re deep into the new offerings from Fotoform (formerly C’est La Mort, and playing Seagaze!), DIV I DED and Northeastern Railroads. Plus, we’re pushing fresh material from Bugjar, Flowerbomb, LLOLLYANNA, Static Daydream, The Infinite Seas, and The Investment. We have more new music than space to tell you about it. All the while, we’ll update you on Seagaze Festival events via Facespace and Tweeter. We’re not afraid of double duty.

Weekend! We’ve waited all week for this. Like your corner dealer, we’re pushing the NEW stuff. Like the new singles from The Foreign Resort (shortly headed for Canadian tour), Wozniak (whose forthcoming LP is something we’ve been looking forward to for months), and Venn (who continue to impress with each new release). But that’s not all… we’re impressed by the tasty, grungy treats from Abusive Language, a new band from Philly that’s bringing the edge. We’re high on the impressive new single from Retrieval, Tunisia’s finest export. And Desperate Journalist… music so good, your eyes will roll back in your head.

And that’s on top of last week’s amazing adds, including Taffy, You’ll Never Get to Heaven, Shimmer, Clustersun, Afor Gashum, Somewhere, Hypersleep, d.e.b.b.i.e., The Age of Colored Lizards, Dead Leaf Echo, The Daysleepers, tashaki miyaki, Slowly, Den-Mate and much more. What would you pay for this much fresh entertainment?

24 June 2014. That’s the last time we heard new music from Jeff Kandefer’s The Daysleepers. The single, “Dream Within a Dreamworld” was big news then, and we wrote it up as such, saying, “Let’s hope this is the first of much new music to come.” Fast forward nearly three years later, and it finally seems we have much to look forward to. The first hint: a classic Smiths cover is released this Friday. And we have the world broadcast premiere on Wednesday afternoon. While we’d usually not get our hopes up too high, it would seem this is just a taster for a full forthcoming album. A release date is not yet set, but The Daysleepers Creation LP will follow several single releases over the coming months. This is no fluke, nor is it small news. It seems Kandefer and Co. have finally settled into their own recording studio, getting everything dialed in, and have promised that “…the best is yet to come.”  Given the evidence thus far, we’d be hard pressed to disagree.

DKFM is proud to roll out the world broadcast premiere of the new Daysleepers single in the noon hour, PDT (3 pm Eastern), and you’ll surely hear it on our air a great deal going forward. And we couldn’t be more excited to hear what comes next!

Website/blog might not have arrived yet, but When The Sun Hits blog has two classic interviews, from 2010 and 2013, to catch up on while we wait for the new news.

Fighting through the chaos, we bring the newness. Monster Movie new album released today, we’ll go long. New EP from Danxia also out today, and haven’t they become prolific suddenly? Good on ’em! The new single from No Kill is all swoonworthy, they’ve earned some new fans in these studios. New and brilliant sounds from Dear Baby Deer shows an epic amount of growth in the past year, and really takes them to a whole new level. New shiny sounds from Purepleaser on tap. And, burying the lede, there’s also a new Slowdive single. Who knew? Plus, we seem to have broken the internet and the radio with our “Star Roving (DKFM Propulsion Mix)”. We took what was an oxymoron, a danceable Slowdive track, chopped it up, phased it out, extended some, and turned it up to 11. And our listeners seem to love the result.

Let us not forget last weekend’s fresh additions, including Figmennt, Seasurfer, Jesus & Mary Chain, Flirting, Hater, Whimsical, Daysee, Holygram, The Gluts, Moon Loves Honey, Forever Fatale, Coloresantos, Cigarettes After Sex, Civil Engineer, PINE, Trementina, Slow Crush, Fotoform and so much more.

Everything, all at once. It’s that kind of weekend. New music from Figmennt (pictured), Seasurfer, Jesus & Mary Chain, Flirting, Hater, Whimsical (again!), Daysee, Holygram, The Gluts, Moon Loves Honey, Forever Fatale, Coloresantos, Civil Engineer, Cigarettes After Sex, PINE, Trementina, and world broadcast premieres from Slow Crush (you’ll have a quick crush on this one, so say we all), and Fotoform (formerly C’est La Mort), with the full album due next month. Pure sonic bliss, indeed. Much as we’re giddy about all the newness that’s landed this weekend, we’re especially over the moon over these two premieres.

That’s not to neglect last weekend’s fresh berries, including the new Alternative F̷acts compilation, the new LPs from Secret Shine and A Thousand Hours, plus Brooklyn’s Sooner, Peppermint Showers, Crème Fouettée, Spectres, Velveteen, The Beremy Jets, and probably a whole bunch more we’ve forgotten by now. The pressure!
