Back to the top

News

109 degrees outside right now. Only solution: bring hot new music to match. New albums from Keep, Major Leagues and Cruel Summer (pictured above, reacting to their upcoming tour with Swirlies), new singles from Turnover, Cloakroom, Winter (channeling her inner J Mascis vocal lines… didn’t see that coming), Mood Dye, Slowly, Jellyskin (not yet released… this is a teaser for more), Deep Blue, Vertebrae, Hush Pup, Processions, lousy hex, Rocketship, Lacing and more. Plus, we’ve finally got hands on EP releases from Sobs, Swap Babies, The Telewire, and Leisure Walks. Overbooked for the weekend, naturally.

That’s only added to last weekend’s freshness, including Ride, Deafcult, Wozniak, Hatchie, Youth Pool, Pink Frost, Pale Spectres, FOAMMM, Chain of Flowers, Bleach Bath, A Shoreline Dream, The Black Watch, Snowball ii, The Raft, Drift, Radiation Flowers, Rocket Ship TV, Nevermind Me, Amber Arcades, Dead Vibrations, M!R!M, Lake Wash, Glass, Vinyl Williams, Seahorse, Alvvays, Herlights, Alarm Drum, and so terribly much more than will fit into the 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 iOSAndroid 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!

If you’ve spent the last six months sleeping under a rock, there’s a new album from Ride out today. In fact, their first new LP in 21 years. If you don’t think that’s a thing, you may be tuned into the wrong radio station, my friends. Much like when Slowdive released a new album this year, a number of other new releases got overlooked (well, everywhere but here). But, you know us. Our job is to keep you up on all of it. New music from Deafcult, Wozniak, Hatchie, Youth Pool, Rocketship, Pink Frost, Pale Spectres, FOAMMM, Chain of Flowers, Bleach Bath, A Shoreline Dream, The Black Watch, Snowball ii, The Raft, Drift, Radiation Flowers, Rocket Ship TV, Nevermind Me, Amber Arcades, Dead Vibrations, M!R!M, Lake Wash, Glass, Vinyl Williams, Seahorse, Alvvays, Herlights, Alarm Drum… everything that fits, and some wot don’t.

Not to neglect last weekend’s fresh additions, including the sparkly new album from Panda Riot, plus Bellavista, Tearjerker, Fawns of Love, Softer Still, Colour of Spring, Doorbells, Beachglass, Sonic Jesus, Secret Meadow, Palm Haze, Daoda, Giant Surprise. We’ll put it all through the compactor, see just how much we can fit in.

Everything arrives at the same time. We’re doing our part in keeping it all together, and giving it all due respect and love. We start with the ridiculously long-awaited full-length from Bellavista. Rex & Co. broke away from Tamaryn to try to polish and perfect this presentation, and the hard work has paid off. But that competes with another LP we’ve been waiting on, Panda Riot’s Infinity Maps. Finally. See (or at least hear) what we’ve been buzzing about for months now. But we’ve also been spooling out world premiere tracks from Renato Malizia’s TBTCI Records compilation, also released today. While Renato has been at the forefront of promoting this sound globally, this is a special project, born of love, laser-focused on the best music Brazil has to offer the shoegaze & dreampop scenes. From station stalwarts like Loomer and Justine Never Knew The Rules, to “new to us” bright surprises like The Us and I Kill Kane, this compilation is a labor of love from all involved, and the quality shines through. Grab your own copy of Come On Feel The Noise: BraZil Class of ’17 at TBTCI’s Bandcamp site.

That’s a long-arse first paragraph, and we’ve only covered the albums! We’ve got new tracks in from Tearjerker, Fawns of Love, Softer Still, Colour of Spring, Doorbells, Beachglass, Sonic Jesus, Secret Meadow, Palm Haze, M!R!M!, Daoda, Giant Surprise, and much more. So, so much new.

We’re honored to trot out a number of world broadcast premieres from TBTCI Records. Renato Malizia has once again outdone himself, stitching together a new and exclusive compilation of dreamy, bendy tunes entitled, Come On Feel The NoiZe, BraZil Class ’17, released on Bandcamp June 9th. If you listen to DKFM, you’ll be well familiar with most of these artists: The Sorry Shop, Kid Foguete, Céus de Abril, Justine Never Knew The Rules, Loomer, Duelectrum, The Us and so many more. These are the artists who’ve spent the last half-decade lighting up Latin America, and lighting up our airwaves. Carefully curated (as usual) by Renato Malizia, this stands as a testimonial to the “deep bench” and incredible talent of these breakthrough artists.

From 10 am to 5 pm PDT (1p-8p Eastern), DJs Heretic and Ariel will season our regular programming with multiple world premieres from this landmark compilation. Of course, you’ll hear all of it during the New Tracks Weekend extravaganza, but, on the day of its release, it seems appropriate to call attention to and celebrate this unique album, and the hard work being done by TBTCI and these top-quality artists.

The full album is available June 9th, via the TBTCI Records Bandcamp site, and it’s a jewel. Congratulations to Renato for pulling together another epic release!

Seven Tin Stars

New, fresh, sometimes obscure, often beloved. We’ve got the weekend fresh-wrapped for you! The long-awaited new single from Seven Tin Stars (pictured above) has the churn you’ve come to love. New music from Etti-Etta, Distant Creatures (we’ll go long with the new LP), Colour of Spring, Swimming Tapes, Voluptuous Panic, Mundy’s Bay, Brilliant Beast (preorders up now via Bandcamp), the bendy new single from Magic Shoppe, plus new music from Glare and Glaze (wholly unrelated), Movie Brain, and a key track we’d missed from station favorites Power Pyramid. Got hands on the new long-player from Stellarscope, will push some prime cuts. Finally, we’re spinning over the new track from Melbourne’s Leisure Walks. Because, there’s something in the water there, and it seems to make everything sparkle.

Not to forget last weekend’s fresh tracks, including Panda Riot, My Favorite Things, Ciel, Processions, Foliage, 93millionmilesfromthesun, Supercandy, Volunteer Cheerleader, Swimming Tapes, A Thousand Hours, Jet Trash, plus the Bethany Curve reissue, and we get hazy with Weed.

Cup runneth over. New Tracks Weekend this weekend features the newest and brightest stars in the firmament. Kicking off with a few choice cuts from the forthcoming Panda Riot LP, due in June. Plus we’ve got the latest pre-release tracks from My Favorite Things, Ciel, Processions, Foliage and more, before you’ll hear them anywhere else! And we’ll shovel in the new releases from 93millionmilesfromthesun, Colour of Spring, Supercandy, Volunteer Cheerleader, Swimming Tapes, A Thousand Hours, Jet Trash, plus the Bethany Curve reissue, and the new and (allegedly) final release from Vancouver’s grunge kingpins, Weed. Packed out!

But we don’t stop there. We’re still deep into the new Pia Fraus, Tennis System, 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. No incentive to do anything this weekend other than lay about listening to the radio, amirite?

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!

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.
