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!

Surely the two biggest releases of the week come from Tokyo and Toronto: Tokyo’s Cattle, with Somehow Hear Songs EP, explode into your consciousness with bright and fuzzy sounds. Out now on Jigsaw Records, Seattle, this is sure to be a rotation staple, and ranks among the best of 2015. Toronto’s Lust dropped the long-awaited LP today, and it gets all the feels right. We interviewed Lust, posted just today, to coincide with the album release. There’s a metric ton of shoegaze talent in Toronto, and they’re bringing the tuneful noise. Another quality release sure to end up on our best-of-year lists. Tunes and tones, mastered. This weekend, we’re all about both bands. You will be too.

But hey, that can’t be all, right? Right. We go deep with White Poppy, Ghost Cat, Trementina, Plush and Wipe. New sounds from The Yellow Traffic Light and Snow in Mexico, plus recent sounds from Fake Flowers. We’re still pushing Reverse (on tour now!), Blood Candy, Thud, Bleak Boys, Wolf Alice, GLISS, Daydream Cathedral, and a whole lot more. It’s a holiday weekend Stateside, so we’ll bring our own fireworks.
