New Tracks Weekend

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.

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!

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.

In a week where we’ve found DKFM is nominated for a second online radio award, it’s hard to keep our heads from spinning. But we’re here for you, and for new, and we’ve got plenty of both to keep everyone satisfied. From today’s release of Panda Riot’s Part Time Punks Session (brilliantly executed, that), to the new Vesper Records release of Dreams are Like Water, the debut EPs from Charcoal Skies and Team Tremolo, the sparkling new single from perennial favorites Indoor Voices, the reformed and re-polished Shallow, the epic new teaser single from Lapse, plus Dreams Wash Ashore (releasing September 8th) and The Age of Colored Lizards have new material they’d like you to consider. Plus we’ve finally got hands on the new Frankie Rose LP, with competing textures and colors, and the first single from the band When The Sun Hits, from the forthcoming Immersed Within Your Eyes EP on Saint Marie Records. Rounding out the roster, fresh tones from Pink Milk and YuKuBerī that simply must be heard. Finally, new music from Italy’s Sitting Girl With Arms Bent, full of charm and sparkle. Let’s do this!

That’s not to ignore last weekend’s new additions, including SPC ECO, Widowspeak, Plasticstatic, Turnover, Lilac, Ask For Joy, Seafang, Megumi Acorda, Death Bells, Headclouds and hamsas xii. We’ll somehow make this all work, with a minimum of failure.

Breaking new releases first. It’s a damn fine week for us, as we were shortlisted for 2017 Best Online Station: North America via the Online Radio Awards, sponsored by Mixcloud. Planting a flag for shoegaze and dream pop, as we do. We’re not exactly apologetic about this music, either. So there’s that. But we have a weekend to run, and a boxful of headliners to push! Brand new albums from Widowspeak, Plasticstatic, SPC ECO and Turnover, new EPs from Iris and Lilac, new singles from Ask For Joy, Seafang, Megumi Acorda, Death Bells, Headclouds and hamsas xii. We’re well booked, even as we celebrate this moral victory for shoegaze and dream pop, and vindication of the DKFM brand’s unique, if eccentric, sonic vision. Selah.

This only adds to last weekend’s new additions, including Cloakroom, Black Nite Crash, Season of Strangers, Honeyrude, navyblue, A Certain Smile, New Age Healers, COSme, DAZE, Hypnotic Kingdom, Yumi Zouma, Plasticstatic, Cat Hoch, Candace, Jeff Mannix and the Depressives, Sound of Ceres, Lubec, Hurricane Heart Attacks, Alvvays, We Are Parasols, Virgin Suicide, Wyldest and more. We’ve got this under control. Mostly.

Amidst a wash of new releases, we’re also beset with difficulties with our carrier network, which is collapsing and restarting servers along the chain. We soldier on. The new LP from Elsa (pictured above), plus the long-awaited return of PARLOUR (if it seems like it’s been years, you’re not far wrong). New music from Palm Haze, The Smilies, The Stargazer Lilies, WIDOWSPEAK, Intenna, Justine Never Knew the Rules, Black Sea, Acaena Eterna, FOREVR (genre shift in full effect, we’ll try to shuffle in the most relevant material), HuanHuan, Previous Love, Thud, Todos tus tanques soviéticos and much more. We’ll leave the light on for you, light a candle for us.

Packed in with all the new, all at once. Headliners include Lowtide, returning with a sparkling single, the rest of the new Softsurf debut EP makes it into rotation (finally!), new Knifeplay we’ve been buzzing about, pre-release music from the new Crash City Saints LP (previewed here), due next week.

All of this, all in one week? Can’t really imagine how we fit it all into one weekend, frankly.

That’s only compounded by last weekend’s newest additions, including She Sir, Celldweller, Bleach Dream, Second Still, Barlow, Doorbells, bokunofune, Flashes, Life Model, Muskk, Sundowners, Castlebeat, FUR, Dactylion, FOREVR, Season of Strangers, The Wagner Logic, and Dots (・・・・・・・・・). We’d be better off playing them all at the same time, to get it all to fit.

New singles from Sundowners, Castlebeat, FUR, Dactylion, FOREVR, and Season of Strangers. Plus we’re spinning advance of the forthcoming LP from The Wagner Logic, Heart is Dark (releases via Team Clermont next month), and we’re digging into the limited back catalogue of Dots (・・・・・・・・・), Japan’s first significant shoegaze idol band. Yum!

That’s not to overlook last weekend’s jewels, including Telyscopes, Heaters, SHINY TIMES, Backwarmer, Calling All Astronauts, Softsurf, Retrieval, Pabst, Autisti, Bare Pale, Foliage, Saccades, Honeyrude, Cigarettes After Sex, Beliefs, Sylvie, A Thousand Hours, Seven Tin Stars, Greg-Nunn, and choice cuts from the Dut Dut Dut Dut compilation.

Pretend you’re us. You start out thinking you’ve got not much to add to the New Tracks Weekend rotation. Then, 24 hours before air, seems like your wheelbarrow is overloaded with new additions. And, even as you sideload and cut promo for all the new music, you realize you’ve lost another three new releases you’d intended to shine a spotlight on. This is us. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but usually varying degrees of this. So, subject to change, here’s the joy we’re boosting this weekend (no particular order): Telyscopes, Heaters, SHINY TIMES, Backwarmer, Calling All Astronauts, Softsurf, Retrieval, Pabst, Autisti, Bare Pale, Foliage, Saccades, Honeyrude, Cigarettes After Sex, Beliefs, Sylvie, A Thousand Hours, Seven Tin Stars, Greg-Nunn, and choice cuts from the Dut Dut Dut Dut compilation we premiered last night. V v packed. Packed, I tell you.

That only adds to last weekend’s fresh mayhem stew, including Cat in the Case, Houseplants, Dakota, Speedy Ortiz, Shady Bug, The Dreamtoday, Morning TV, See Through Dresses, plant cell, Mermaidens, Spotlights, Laedj, Juvenile Juvenile, Dazy Crown, Foliage, Strange Lights, Autumn’s Grey Solace and more. We mean it when we say: there’s more new music worth hearing than hours in the day to play it.
