It’s Friday the 13th as we write this, yet we see it as a day to celebrate. For instance, who knew the new Slowdive single was in the pipeline, and released just yesterday? If you’re looking for something special about this new year, that’s sure to kick it off right. So of course we’re showcasing the new Slowdive single, “Star Roving”, but we’re also heavily into the new release from Great Black Night, which somehow got past our radar on initial release. Given the impressiveness of their sound, we’re making up for that miss at double speed. We’ve got hands on the new singles from Jay Som, Did You Die, Plaza, Singapore Sling, Fake Flowers, PURS, plus the new EP from rotation staples COLLAPSE, select tracks from TBTCI’s Red-Shoegaze compilation, dream jangle from Antiphons, grunge-inflected haze from 雨の中の馬, plus Purepleaser, Russia’s HORSEFISH, and we take a deep dive into the recent LP from Suburban Living.

We’ve packed all this material into a sprawling weekend’s programming, including last weekend’s treats from Lazy Legs, This Social Coil, Loners, Joel Gion (BJM), Sakawa Boys, Colour of Spring, SeiSui, Twin Studies, Sound and Fury, Raveonettes, and Féroces. Shiny winners all.

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!

How many headliners can you pack into one weekend? We shall see. We’ve got today’s new releases from Crescendo, Wild Nothing, and The Telewire, a broadcast premiere from Walking Misery, new music from Japan’s Collapse, Estonia’s She Bit Her Lip (giving Pinkshinyultrablast a run for their money!), Austin’s Ask For Joy, Fir Cone Children, Tape Deck Mountain, We Are Temporary, Good Personalities, Jupitamoon, Svankropp, and topped with world broadcast premieres from original ‘gaze icons The Veldt (Apollo Heights), whose new EP The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation drops March 18th, in advance of a major (and overdue) national tour. We’d call this an abundance of sonic riches.

That’s not to forget last week’s fresh adds, including Rev Rev Rev, Winkie, Memoryhouse, Mint Julep, Whales, Ashley Shadow, Film School, Alone, Venusians, Movie Brain, My Dark House, Kigo, The Raudive, Did You Die, Serfs, and The Sun Days. So much good stuff!
