When you think you’ve hit a lull on quality new music, boom. There’s a whole bunch of fresh material awaiting your attention. New releases from station favorites Taffy (pictured), You’ll Never Get to Heaven, and Shimmer, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Pre-release awesomeness from Afor Gashum and Clustersun, and the newest sounds from Somewhere, Hypersleep, d.e.b.b.i.e., The Age of Colored Lizards, Dead Leaf Echo, The Daysleepers, tashaki miyaki, Slowly, and Den-Mate. And that’s just the stuff we can remember.

Add all that onto last week’s haul, including Monster Movie, Danxia, Dear Baby Deer, Slowdive, Figmennt, Seasurfer, Hater, Whimsical, Trementina, Fotoform, Slow Crush, Moon Loves Honey, Holygram… packed in tight.

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!

American elections are a toxic stew right now. Let us calm your nerves with dusty dream pop and anthemic surf gaze, beat the blues down. Our dusty dream pop is provided by Belle Mare, whose homey sonic confections draw you right into their warmth. Don’t bother resisting. Our anthems are provided by Honeyblood, whose beachgaze ethic and hummable tunes will have you harkening back to sunnier climes. But that’s not all… we tease you with cuts from the upcoming Strata Florida LP, Falling From Grace, gracing your Bandcamp soon. Louise Trehy (ex 4AD’s Swallow) has been expanding her art form, shaping new colors and textures, still lovingly wrapped in reverb. We’re glowing over the gossamer new release from Lillet Blanc, who are everything you dream of (if you dream of jangly dream pop). Truly a jewel of a debut. We’re keen on the new single from Death Valley Rally, a tempest in a storm drain, from their forthcoming LP on November 4th. Russia brings us Blankenberge, with a dizzying haze that will have you questioning your bearings. We’re up to date with Coloring Electric Like, the brand new Heavy Heart, My Dark House, Seasurfer, Dead Leaf Echo, Did You Die, Terry vs. Tori, Split Dream, and Spielberg. Finally, we’re “long” on the new LP from Austin’s Vet Trip. They’ve come a long way from the days we were bugging them on Soundcloud to share their single “Finland” for airplay. Hear the rest of the story here this weekend, and discover for yourself why we were early adopters.

Not to overlook last weekend’s new additions, including Tears Run Rings, Landing, RUBUR, Pia Fraus, Desario, Pastel Dream, Glace, Otoño, Jeremiah Foundation, Svelte, The History of Colour TV, Clan de Venus, Gentle Ivanhoe Death Skulls, Daydream Cathedral, Bruising, I Mean Us, shalloboi, Planet Rewind, Useless Cities, SJÖBLOM, The Owls Seem What They Are Not, War Waves, Acid Ghost, Suburban Living and Boytoy. Not enough hours in the day!

New Tracks Weekend kicks off 8 pm Eastern, 5 pm Pacific, and continuing through Sunday at midnight Eastern, 9 Pacific.

Can you hear me now? How about now? If you can hear this broadcast, congratulations! You’re one of the lucky ones.

We’re caught in the middle of an epic legal battle between two multibillion-dollar music companies fighting over Taylor Swift royalties, though we have quite little to do with either of them, and wouldn’t put their music on air if you paid us to. But, long story short, much of Canada and a swath of U.S. listeners have been unable to reach us for the last 48 hours. Awesome. Whether it be a blockage of our app, or the takedown from TuneIn Radio, it’s been a difficult week. We have several stopgaps in place that should fix the problem for most affected listeners, starting today. It seems sad that this is a battle we should have to re-litigate after 2015, but here we are. The major labels would prefer you didn’t hear indie artists, or shoegaze/dreampop music, and they’d prefer we not play them for you. It’s a zero-sum game where everyone (especially indie bands and labels) loses. We appreciate all you have done to support our efforts thus far, and we’ll keep you posted through the chaos.

If you’re lucky enough to hear us on the app, New Tracks Weekend is incredibly proud to be able to bring you fresh new music from Miniatures, The Blessed Isles, Mumrunner, Dead Leaf Echo, VHS Dream, Youth Pool, Lazy Legs, Champanes, Teen Body, These Sonic Waves, The New Tigers, Rain, Nothing, and whatever the hell else we can fit in. One foot in front of the other, one eye over our shoulder.

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. Listen via the Radionomy station page at DKFM, on Shoutcast, and on TuneIn Radio for iPhone/Android/Windows. Plus we have our new branded apps for Apple’s iOS, Android and Blackberry. Or load up the “Internet Radio” tab of your iTunes desktop client, and you’ll find DKFM Shoegaze Radio under ‘Alternative’.

We are well ready for the weekend. And this weekend’s New Tracks Weekend is sure to please. We’re discovering Germany’s Dress, and wondering how we’d missed them all this time. A dreamy and passionate cocktail of jangle and reverb that’s sure to grab your attention. Plus we’ve got the newest music from Did You Die, Fazerdaze, The Great Artiste, Future Age, Dead Leaf Echo, Shoreline Is, Soft Science, The Luxembourg Signal, plus choice cuts from Saint Marie Records’ Static Waves 4 compilation, and TBTCI’s Pale Saints tribute compilation. Shiny.

But that’s not all! We’re still deep into Jay Som, Drawing Water, Crescendo, Lights That Change, Bluelily, Simmer, Gleemer, Vet Trip, Intenna, Folie a Deux, INHEAVEN, Elora, Alpha du Centaure, E8, Ghost Lake and so much more. I don’t know if we have enough time in the weekend to entertain you with all of this.

Don’t forget our Album of the Year poll is going on NOW!

It starts with pre-release awesomeness from the sweetly textured Dead Leaf Echo, and pre-release sandpaper textures from Roku Music. Both of these drop first Tuesday in March, and are well worth keeping your ears open for. Add in all the newest releases from The Casket Girls, Cheatahs, Soft Science, Glaswen, Lilies on Mars, Nights, The Open Feel, ArtClassSink, and a cripplingly lovely tune from Portland’s Vibrissae, and you’ve got a full weekend worth of amazeballs.
