New Tracks Weekend

Well of course we’re late. What with cross-country travel, several epic shows, and yesterday’s rollout of our new billboard (inorite?), we’re getting things done. Just a tad slower than usual. We’re still behind on submissions and some new music, but catching up. This weekend, we celebrate the release of the new album from Gingerlys, which has layers of charm and sparkle. We’re pushing the new Day Wave cover of Interpol, featuring Hazel English, which is everything you could hope for. New music from Pinkshinyultrablast, CAUCUS, Fauvely, No Vacation, Gleemer, Jessica 93, Loveblind, Tea Leigh & Luke Reed, The Veldt, On The Wane, Inspiraling, Dana, The Dayoffs, and choice cuts from two worthy compilations: TBTCI’s Wire Revisited comp, and Patetico Recordings’ Rock Back: Stronger Than the Storm compilation, with all proceeds benefitting victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. We’ve even got a Whimsical live cut from Kalamashoegazer that might even be more compelling than the studio version! And that’s just the new adds we can remember…

Not to neglect last weekend’s freshness, including Kindling, Cave Shine, Glaare, Heaters, Demur, Wind Along The Coast, Blush, Processions, Miners, Vansire, Curelight Wounds, Car Crash Sisters, Ghost Noise, Broken Little Sister, Cherry Coloured, Fragile Animals, Dim, Black Books, Silver Liz, Autumn (US) and so much more. Truly more songs than time.

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 playlist 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!

The Calm After the Storm…

Yes, we spun a new configuration of New Tracks Weekend last weekend, but given all the events of last weekend (Kalamashoegazer, Panda Riot/Brief Candles/Lightfoils, Slowdive), we didn’t properly promote the new material. Yes, you are all due a travelogue on last week’s epic midwestern swing by DKFM staff, but we’re holding off until the edited video evidence of our journey comes in. We say all that to say this: fresh tracks last weekend, fresher tracks this weekend. Here’s our star roster: Kindling, Cave Shine, Glaare, Heaters, Demur, Wind Along The Coast, Blush, Processions, Miners (formerly of Pala, now lost in some geography-deficient but reverb-laden locale), Vansire, Curelight Wounds (sneak preview, everyone!), Car Crash Sisters, Ghost Noise, Broken Little Sister, Cherry Coloured, Fragile Animals, Dim, Black Books, Silver Liz, Autumn (US) and a great deal more we’ve likely just forgotten to include. Woe is us, living on the edge like that.

Not to ignore the previous weekend’s new music, including Aerofall, Sadfields, The Medicine, Small Planets, The Luxembourg Signal, Slow Glows, My Proper Skin, mi andromeda, Winter, Pony Fringe, GYHT, Bur, Breaking Forms, and The Legendary House Cats. All weekend, packed in.

It’s Brief Candles week. With all the newness we’ve shoveled into the big weekend, Brief Candles’ new LP stands head and shoulders above the rest, and not just because it seems we’ve waited forever for it. So we’ll be celebrating that release this weekend, and many weeks to come. But we have so much more on offer. The new EP from Japan’s CQ shows a return to epic form. We’ve got choice cuts from the new Percolator album that’ll bend your mind. Fresh tracks from Evening Glow, Haunter, Everything Fades, Glitter Trails, DoZzz, WY, The BV’s, submeet, Misty Coast, Hexagrams, Crown of Pity, A Thousand Hours, XO, Amusement Parks on Fire, Pastel Ruins, Blushing, Pink Milk, Flower Crown, Wrip, and so much more.

Swimming through chaos, as well as the joy of new releases. We’re thrilled to welcome the return of Mexico’s Sadfields, whose Homesick EP reminds us why we fell for them in the first place: Mood, texture, color, drama, with feels to spare. We’re thrilled to provide a sneak preview of the forthcoming Aerofall LP, Forms, coming soon to Hands and Moment. Speaking of that excellent label, they’ve recently signed Osaka standouts The Medicine, whose cassette/download double single is due for release shortly. We’ll preview that as well. But we’ve also got the new album from The Luxembourg Signal, plus tracks from Winter, Small Planets, Slow Glows, My Proper Skin, mi andromeda, Pony Fringe, GYHT, Bur, Breaking Forms, and The Legendary House Cats. Packed.

Not to diminish last weekend’s new adds, including Airiel, Dead Leaf Echo, Walking Misery, Beaches, Creature in the Spiral, Dayzed, Double Jackal, Godmother, Here Knows When, Motorcade, Purepleaser, Shimmerance, Sound of Ceres, Sun Scream, Tide Bends, and Soundwire. So so much.

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.

A new weekend means a new boatload of fresh tracks begging your attention and devotion. We’ll spin choice cuts from the forthcoming Pia Fraus LP, Field Ceremony, due next week on Shelflife Records. We’re also heavy-rotating the new singles from The Daysleepers, Candace, Tearjerker, Submeet, Biltmore Dive, A Thousand Hours, Cloakroom, Lanark, Secret Meadow, Vast Asteroid (album drops November, keep eyes peeled!), Zombie Girlfriend and more. Plus, EPs from Ysgol Sul, Nurse and Tomorrow Forever, To The Wedding returns, Surf Rock is Dead make good on early promise, Yumi Zouma’s Willowbank is everything you could hope for, Butterbeer lives up to the hype, KITT vs KARR debuts on our air, and new jewels from Matthew and Me. We’re amplifying Muso Asia’s promotion of Daydream Nagoya, with the inclusion of more than a few mind-bending tunes he featured last Wednesday night. Finally, we’re happy to spool in a few choice cuts from the sparkling new sophistipop compilation from Fadeawayradiate, I Remember That. When Estella asked about mastering help, and when we saw the roster, how could we refuse? Free download, for those with sophisticated tastes. *wink*

Not to neglect last weekend’s new adds, including Pencey Sloe, The Morelings, Lyons, The Cherry Wave, Solip, Fever Dream, Lubec, The Blue Herons, Tús Nua, DRAINING, Red Rosie, Death Bells, Wild Ones, Argrph, Ysgol Sul, Fuzzy Feeling, Plastic Flowers, Vale, Dirty Sidewalks, Lapse, Walking Misery, Hold/Transfer, Monotronaut’s Gestural EP, and Jekyll. So much new.

As we flip the calendar page on another month, we’re packed with the new releases. From Paris, Pencey Sloe (pictured above) bring amazing tunes with post-rock flourishes. Find of the week. From Englishtown, New Jersey, the sparkling Lyons brings the surf jangles with style. The Cherry Wave dropped their new Close EP today, and Oakland’s heavy Solip just yesterday dropped the Without EP . Throw the calendar out, nobody knows what’s happening anymore. Fever Dream explodes all over your radio this weekend, as does Lubec, Tús Nua, DRAINING, Death Bells, Wild Ones, Argrph, Ysgol Sul, Fuzzy Feeling, Plastic Flowers, Vale, shiny psych inflections from Dirty Sidewalks, and brand new singles from Lapse, and Walking Misery. And we’re slightly late to the party on Hold/Transfer new music, Monotronaut’s Gestural EP (dropped last week), and Jekyll (not the hair metal band, but a different one). Plus we can finally shuffle all the gems from Same Century, The Morelings debut LP. D’oh! Can’t overlook today’s release from The Blue Herons, a collaboration between Andy Jossi of The Churchill Down and Krissy Vanderwoude of Whimsical… shimmering. Or today’s new release from Red Rosie, which also serves as a benefit. Red Collier is making music to make others jealous, we’re convinced of it. Wouldn’t be surprised if we forgot a band or five, as we pile in all of the new releases.

That only adds to last week’s haul, including Airiel, Miniatures, Kindling, Lazy Day, Leones, Pink Milk, Poolshop, DoZzz, Medicine (not technically new, but the reissue counts), Tangible Rays, Citrus Clouds, Corasandel, Biltmore Dive, Magic Mountain, Cascadia Fault Line, FireFly, Outward, Bright As Yellow, Close Encounter, Wild Meadows, Plums, Swanhoppers, and Makaras Pen. Overbooked for air.

When there’s so much new music to promote that we can’t even keep our dates straight? That’s a helluva month. And we’re topping last week already (but we’ll keep dates accurate this time). Airiel and Miniatures headline. Both albums dropping soon, surely you’ve preordered by now? But we’ve also been granted a few choice cuts from The Morelings debut LP, dropping next week. If we haven’t gotten you excited about Same Century yet, you may be listening to the wrong station. Plus, new music from Kindling, Lazy Day, Leones, Pink Milk, Poolshop, DoZzz, Medicine (not technically new, but the reissue counts), Tangible Rays, Citrus Clouds, Corasandel, Biltmore Dive, Magic Mountain, Cascadia Fault Line, FireFly, Outward, Bright As Yellow, Close Encounter, Wild Meadows, Swanhoppers, and the ever-sparkling Makaras Pen, in advance of their forthcoming EP. Plus, we’ll drag out a few classic chestnuts from Plums, who bring the jangle. Done and done!

That’s not to overlook last weekend’s new treasures, including MidNightSun, When The Sun Hits, Black Needle Noise, Swimming Tapes, Seeing Hands, Palm Haze, No Kill, Lacing, Death Bells, Auburn Lull, Silver Liz, 93millionmilesfromthesun, PolyAnna, Outward, Burn The Louvre, The Orchids, Volunteer Cheerleader, Ella Atlas, Alvvays, The Prids, Sun Colony and more! More music than weekend, naturally.

Thinking it might be a slow weekend for new music, we sort of went into cruise control. Wrong. Always wrong. We have the honor of previewing next week’s release of When The Sun Hits (the band, not the blog, or the classic Slowdive song) on Saint Marie Records. Immersed Within Your Eyes drops next week, and you can hear why SMR was rightly buzzed about these Nottingham lads. But, more. Former members of Solar Powered People banded together to lay down a heavy foundation and new tunes. Modesto’s MidNightSun is experimenting with heavy shoegaze feels, and is on the lookout for a vocalist to complement the epic haze. You’ll want to hear what this crew has been up to. But so much more… Black Needle Noise, Swimming Tapes (pictured, above), Seeing Hands, Palm Haze, No Kill, Lacing, Death Bells, Auburn Lull (new album landed today!), Silver Liz, 93millionmilesfromthesun, PolyAnna, Outward, Burn The Louvre, The Orchids, Volunteer Cheerleader, Ella Atlas, Alvvays, The Prids, Sun Colony, and choice cuts from the new TBTCI compilation celebrating the Psychedelic Furs. OH! And the new single from The Morelings. Having heard advance of the album, this seems like a next-level effort, and we’re looking forward to the official release.

Let’s not forget last weekend’s new tracks, including Infinity Girl’s swan song, L.A. Witch, The City Gates, Echoes, Indrive, Debrider, Cold Beat, Wild Arrows, Baker Island, Bruise Pristine, Changelings, SALES, No Honeymoon and WYWY. All picked at the peak of freshness.

Another fresh weekend brings a fresh boatload of new music. Hot on the heels of our Peabody Award win, we’re back to normal (if you can call any of what we do “normal”), and ready to celebrate the newness. New albums from Infinity Girl and L.A. Witch (pictured, above), plus new EPs from The City Gates, Echoes, Indrive, Debrider, and Cold Beat. Plus we cull choice cuts from the new Wild Arrows and Baker Island LPs, and dance about the studios with new singles from Bruise Pristine, Changelings, SALES, No Honeymoon and WYWY. To top it all off, we’ll plug in some classics from Amusement Parks on Fire, who celebrate the deluxe reissue of their Road Eyes LP on Saint Marie Records. We’re more than ready to charge ahead into the unknown.

That’s in addition to last weekend’s treats, including Panda Riot, Dreams are Like Water, Charcoal Skies, Team Tremolo, Indoor Voices, Shallow, Lapse, Dreams Wash Ashore, The Age of Colored Lizards, Frankie Rose, When The Sun Hits, Pink Milk, Sitting Girl With Arms Bent, and YuKuBerī. Overbooked as always.
