Back to the top

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!

Our cup overfloweth. Brand new music from Thud, and only a select few have access to it for airplay. Great band, great tune, great video, premiered on Sounds Better With Reverb. New sounds from Strange Relations, Turnip King, The Florist (we’ll go deep with the full album), The Indigo Palms, Big Deal, Boyfriend’s Dead, Did You Die, Foliage, Ghost Box Orchestra, Heavy Heart, Omega Vague, Porcelain Raft, Tonemirror, João Bispo and much more. So fresh, still a little green around the edges. Put us in your cart anyway.

That’s not to forget last week’s new additions, however. Kindling, Jay Som, Caterwall, Sunshine, Miss Mobile Home, Space Waves, The White Tulips, A Certain Smile, Lake Ruth, Future Theory, Babaganouj, Whimsical, Soccer Mommy, so so much new stuff.

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.

NEW TRACKS WEEKEND. We’re ready. We’re premiering the first two singles from Wray’s spectacular Hypatia LP, due in January. We’ll be pushing them for two months, so get used to the awesome. We’re also catching up with The Dagger Complex. New to us, and terribly embarrassed to have missed this. Making up for it now. Plus new music from South Carolina’s exquisitely textured Lightness, worth your attention. New earworms from Japan’s Ether Feels. The new album Uneasy, from staff favorites Sheer, now available from The Native Sound. You’ll finally get why we’ve been buzzing for months now. The shiny new single from Weekender, sure to tickle your soul, but deeply. New tunes from Did You Die, There’s Talk, Bruising, Parsec, Grivo, Lift, Darkly, Omega Vague, and Pankhabilli. Our copy of Ringo Deathstarr’s Pure Mood, not yet arrived. But we’ve got some lesser-known older material to help fill the bill while we wait.

But that’s not all! We’re still pushing The John Candy, Rolemodel, Lighthouse, Pine, Kindling, Brilliant Beast, Versing, Half, Bloom Waves, Lazy Legs, and a whole hella bunch more. Because that’s how we do.

It’s the one party where you’re always welcome.

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.
