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.

Not to ignore last 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.

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.

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.

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*

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.

Releasing into the wild on 21 July, the first issue from Dut Dut Dut Dut LLC, the Summer of Shimmer 17 mixtape. A project months in the making, Mike Contreras and Co. wanted to simultaneously celebrate the scene that celebrates itself, promote new and emerging artists, and plant a flag to represent their new imprint. Half of these tracks are brand new, never before heard, and exclusive to this compilation. Twelve unique artists, twelve divergent sonic approaches, one limited edition tinted blue cassette tape with digital download code, We’ll run a special program tonight, 10 pm Eastern, 7 Pacific, premiering select tracks from the compilation.

1. Soda Lilies – “Not Like Honey”
2. Red Rosie – “Close My Eyes”

We’ll also be dropping in a choice cut or two from tomorrow’s A Thousand Hours release: Sleep is their second long-player, and it’s a next-level effort. It’s been an honor to work on both projects, mastering both albums with an eye (er, ear) toward broadcast. And we’re happy to trot out fresh premieres from both projects in one happy hour of sonic freshness!

 

All the new music, all of the time. Shiny new music from Taiwan’s Cat in the Case (pictured, above), both fuzzy and jangly. The new release from Houseplants generating buzz in the studio. The new double-single from Dakota is a joy to behold. TBTCI’s Stereolab tribute album is full of gems. New Speedy Ortiz, Shady Bug, The Dreamtoday, Morning TV (welcome back!), See Through Dresses, plant cell, Mermaidens, Spotlights, Laedj, Juvenile Juvenile, Dazy Crown, Foliage, Strange Lights and more. Plus, we go long with the new LP from Autumn’s Grey Solace, channelling their inner Victorialand. And finally, we get to to tease out new tracks from the forthcoming album from A Thousand Hours, due next week. If you thought you knew what this team was capable of before, Red & Co. will exceed your expectations, again.

Let’s not forget last weekend’s additions, including Brilliant Beast, Star Tropics, Grabbel and the Final Cut, Agent Blå, New Youth, Overlake, Saccades, We, the Pigs, Beach Fossils, Everso, Caterwall, Guest Directors, The Daysleepers and so much more. All of the new, now.

Epic. It’s a huge weekend for us, as we pack in a wealth of music for the weekend. Some brand new, some that we were blissfully ignorant of until this week. For instance, Electro Group. They’ve been churning out compelling music off and on for nearly two decades, and we only heard about them following this new release? That’s our failing. Sacramento’s Electro Group may have their influences clearly stamped, but the songs themselves are purely original and compelling. Unsurprisingly, we’ll go deep with the new LP as well as turn-of-the-century releases. Then there’s Morning Harvey. We remember being early adopters of this Aussie band when they were busting out, but then we lost track. Now we have an opportunity to catch up. But, speaking of new-new, we’d be remiss to miss the new LP from Jay Som (recently covered by Putzfork, but we won’t hold that against Melina & Co.). We’re ridiculously keen on the new double-single from Silver Liz, equally torrid and lilting. And that’s a thing. Plus we’re turned on to the debut from South Texas’ Fun With Ether, perfectly molded and ready to shine. And we’re rich with new singles from Sheer, HYLA, Danxia, Dead Gaze, Lunar Twin, Maheekats, A Thousand Hours, LOZA, LLOLLYANNA, Secret Shine, Prepare My Glider and MUCH more. Plus we’ll catch up with Diet Cig, Lazyeyes, Our Girl and a cast of many. So much stuff to stuff!

That only adds to last weekend’s new freshness, including Fawns of Love, Whimsical, Ride, Babaganouj, No Vacation, Daysee, Slowly, Life on Venus, The Mites, Delay Trees, 93MillionMilesFromTheSun, Sleepwalk, The Wrecking Queens, Excuses for Skipping, VENN, Froth, Novella… all of the songs, all of the time.
