SO packed, much new, very reverb. That’s what our weekend is like, how about yours? We’ve got today’s freshly birthed single from Tokyo’s LLLL, out now on the Zoom Lens label. We’ve got The Stargazer Lilies’ Part Time Punks Session, but ours is ‘goosed’, in the way only we can, for maximum impact (nobody else has this version!). The sparkling new LP from Blonde Tongues, Safe Like Silk In Polyester Sheets. We’ll go deep with that, too. Need more new? We’ve got Andrew Younker’s just-released LP of dreamy confections, plus Dot Dash, Blue Bombay, Fawns of Love’s new single, Moon Loves Honey, Fools Ferguson (three impressive courses you haven’t heard yet!), new music from Human Colonies, Citrus Clouds, Soft Lashes, Manorlady, the return of Cherry Crush, plus Monster Movie’s new single (full album preorders now), Sadfields, The Churchill Garden, Walking Misery… surely there’s more we’ve forgot!

Add to that last weekend’s fresh treasures, including The Cherry Wave, Tangible Rays, Devilish Dear, Rayning, Sonic Visions, Movie Brian, Vlimmer, Project Diem, L-space, Doodle, and Lucky+Love. Packed, I tell you.

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. 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: we’re live-scrobbling via our last.fm profile, and 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!

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. And still 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.
