Back to the top

We control the weekend. We expedite the awesome. We polish the newness. As anticipated, we’re all over the new release from Brilliant Beast, one of our most anticipated of the year. And, as we also anticipated, they do not disappoint. Did we say anticipated enough? But we also go long with another special release: Star Tropics’ Lost World just dropped, and it’s likely to burn up iPods all summer. This is the sound of summer, and we can’t recommend it enough. But we’re also bumping the long-form release of Grabbel and the Final Cut, now out in its entirety as an LP. We’re also pushing Agent Blå, New Youth, Overlake, Saccades, We, the Pigs, Beach Fossils, Everso, Caterwall (new lineup, modified sound), Guest Directors and so much more. And of course we’re boosting the first new music from The Daysleepers in ages. Both a welcome return to form, and a graduation to the next level, “Creation” is a fuzzy, watery gem. Again, more music than hours in the weekend. We’ll keep you company, day and night.

But we’ve not forgotten last weekend’s fresh freshness, including DEAFCULT, Blankenberge (interview coming soooooon), Shrike, Parábolas del Bosque, The Bilinda Butchers, Black Sea. The Starlight Run. Foxxxy Mulder. Jessica93. uvii (formerly Ultraviolet). Battery Point. Paper Daggers. Houseplants. Ancient Tapes. Marker. All the new. Plus we’re tossing in a rarity: first wave ‘gazers Moving Holiday, with a DKFM remaster of one of their classic tracks. Because we literally couldn’t hold off till the next Classics and Rarities show.

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!

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.

So it is written, so let it be done.

We’re going BIG this weekend, with a lot of new releases demanding attention. Swervedriver’s new album I Wasn’t Born to Lose You is just the tip of the iceberg. We’re also heavily featuring a brand new candidate for #AOTY2K15, Seattle’s Winnebago with At Home, an album filled with lush, dreamy songwriting and a sound you’ll fall for. New music from Boca River (a little shimmer, a little shoegaze, a little psych, a POWERFUL punch). The new single from Dublin’s Princess, showing the evolution of an already impressive sound. And the first two singles from the forthcoming Westkust LP, Last Forever, now up on preorder via Bandcamp. Talk about evolution. Westkust is going to own Spring 2015.

So much more, we’re gonna start name-dropping: Cherry Crush. Mexico’s Carnival Animals. Did You Die, built on the ashes of the venerable Fantasyprom. Satsuma, with a 4AD inflected sonic feast. Angel Falls, with a sound reminiscent of classic Kitchens of Distinction. Wall of Stars. Alter. Jennie Vee. Kimono Lights. Brilliant Beast. Honey Frequency. Fury Things. mandarinaduck. Figmennt. Flashes. Cheatahs. And that’s just this week’s haul.

More: we’re long on the new Depth & Current LP Believe, as it’s probably their most consistently compelling release to date. We’re still long Venera 4’s Eidôlon, with all the simmering subtlety your ears can handle. We’ll keep pushing the new Airs/Nevermind Me split, because this needs to be heavy rotation in your brain. The Black Ryder, too, is your new spring jam. The new Spökraket LP In a Witch Forest, too, will grab your ears immediately. Salsa Cinderella, we’ll keep reminding you, one of the most impressive debuts of the year. And, again, there’s so much more to the weekend, it won’t all fit.

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.
