Oakland’s Night Shapes today graced us with the premiere of their latest single, “Breathe”. It’s a heady mixture of psych, old-school punk, surf rock and reverb. The track was recorded by front person Jim Morose, then mixed and mastered at Oakland’s Secret Bathroom by engineer Andrew Oswald.

Self-described as “four dudes playing rock & roll with delay and stuff,” Night Shapes are influenced by bands like The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Fugazi, Jesus Lizard, and My Bloody Valentine. Towards the end of their new track you can hear a strong influence by The Jesus and Mary metronidazole medication online Chain.

We’ve seen their live show, and it’s always full of propulsion, energy and electricity. Night Shapes will be on the road starting with the much anticipated DreamGaze Festival in LA with headliners like No Age, Brothers In Law, and Part Time on 4/2 at secret locations downtown LA. Download “Breathe” for free (name-your-price model) on their Bandcamp page.

Upcoming Shows:

3/26 SF @ The Cave (Freak Nest Fest)
4/2 LA @ DreamGaze Festival LA
4/3 SD @ Tree House
4/5 LA @ Ham & Eggs Tavern
4/29 Davis @ Dads Place (KVDS)

SO much new stuff, so much added to the big weekend extravaganza, it’s tempting to compress it all into a little cube and deliver it to your house. New Shelling, new White Blush, new Pains of Being Pure at Heart, pretty new Black Twig, new Selekhov, The Florist, Savage Sister, Save Switzerland, People of Nothing, Drifterswift, Kaela Sinclair, The Capsules, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, torrid new Ceremony, new Ablebody, Sharon Van Etten, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Bloom, Mercy Fist, The Widest Smiling Faces, plus remixes of Rachel Goswell, Asobi Seksu, Howling Bells, Mark Gardener, Mahogany and more. Plus 24 hours’ worth of music new to rotation in the last month. Literally, we’re overbooked, and happy about it.

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. Live365 listeners: it’s your votes that count! Your thumbs-up / thumbs down ratings determine what is kept in permanent rotation. Listen via the Live365 station page at DKFM, on iTunes Internet Radio under “Eclectic”, and on TuneIn Radio for iPhone/Android/Windows. Latin America relay: try Radio Terra. And commercial-free everywhere! You can even keep up with the new tracks and artists you may have missed: we’re live-scrobbling via our last.fm profile. Now you’ll know what you heard, or catch up on what you missed.

We’d list the whole kit and caboodle, but there’s just so much to shove into your ears this weekend, we lack the space to cram it all in! Trust us, we’re pros.

Sometimes you fade away…
