Everything came out this week (or, today). No, really. Don’t know if you’d marked this date on your calendar, we sure hadn’t. But the heavens opened up, and spilled all these new releases all over us. An embarrassment of tuneage. New EPs from No Joy, Funeral Advantage, Kindling, and VENN. All that, this week. New LPs from Whimsical, King Woman and Froth. All that, this week. Plus we (finally) catch up with the new Novella LP, and trot out sparkly new tracks from Jay Som, Violentene, Hexagrams, Glasz, Galaxina, Starwheel, The Age of Colored Lizards, Folder, and the Soundcloud-only headliners (pictured above), December Flowers. All of the new, all this week.

That’s not to neglect last weekend’s new adds, including The Beremy Jets, Teen Divorce, The Death of Pop, Pure Morning, ????? ????, White Tulips, Tall Pines, Daydream Cathedral, Seventeen Years, Terry vs. Tori, Shady Elders, Black Veils, Fawns of Love, highandfragile, Candace, Todavia, The Soft Spots, Schroeder, can you buy flagyl online Wozniak, My Pet Genius, and TBTCI Records’ impressive Slowdive compilation. We’re truly over-booked.

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 inaugurate the weekend with the brightest and freshest new sounds available to us. This may be the only inauguration you’ll want to attend. We kick off with the long awaited full LP from SLC’s No Sun, out today on The Native Sound. We’ve also got hands round the rest of the new release from Taiwan’s Manic Sheep, so we’ll obviously go deep with that. The new EP from Good Personalities (#6 track of 2016) releases Saturday, but we’ll shovel it into rotation as soon as it’s available to us. We’ve got the new singles from Rayning, Snowball II, The Cherry Wave, SPC ECO, Funeral Advantage, The Poetry Book, A Thousand Hours, Daysee, Kyros, Plus we’ll catch up with LA dreampoppers Shyla Buff, and Liverpool’s Sunstack Jones. And, unsurprisingly, we’re spooling out individual gems from TBTCI Records’ My Bloody Valentine compilation. Unsurprisingly. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you owe yourself this.

Of course we’re still heavy spinning last weekend’s new jewels, including (ahem) Slowdive, Great can you buy metronidazole online Black Night, Jay Som, Did You Die, Plaza, Singapore Sling, Fake Flowers, PURS, Collapse, Antiphons, Purepleaser, Horsefish, Suburban Living, ????? and more.

Today we’re treated to a new track from Montréal‘s The City Gates. We’d grabbed hold of the EP’s first single, “Checkpoint Charlie” as soon as we’d stumbled upon it. Only seconds in, you’re treated to an airy, expansive, classic feel. Alternately melodic and abrasive, “Checkpoint Charlie” was a reminder that amazing music is being made right now, that appreciates the genre without simply aping it.

These qualities are brought into sharp focus on the EP’s just-released second single, “Maddening Ride”. Cavernous vocals overlay a wall of guitar expanse, and if you’re a fan of the genre you immediately feel right at home. The hook draws you into the soundscape, and this feels like a song you’ve known all your life, even though you’re hearing it for the first time. Lend an ear.

While surely EP to be released soon! is not the final working title, and effective date for full reveal is projected in late summer, the first two tracks are evidence that The City Gates have truly come into their own. They’ve recently shared a bill with shoegaze veterans The Veldt and Funeral Advantage, but it’s no stretch to imagine their headlining slots aren’t far off. Next show of note is in support of NOTHING and TRACES on August 5th at la Sala Rossa, Montréal. Ready for their star turn, to be sure.

Track The City Gates on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Facebook and Twitter.

RFTW = ready for the weekend. We are. We’re ‘long’ on new music from Infinity Girl, Funeral Advantage, Walking Misery, Baby Honey, Makaras Pen, Miners, Schonwald, Monotronaut, Saturno Devorando, Cherry Picker, HOLD, Tuath, Sunken Seas, Helen, and Holden Girls return with their first new music in two years. None of this is to be slept on.

This is not to ignore last weekend’s headliners. We’re packed to the gills with Blackpool Astronomy, due soon, plus Tamaryn, Fait, Tender Age, Introflirt, The Common Men, Ultraviolet, Is/Is, Plant Cell, Fazerdaze, 93millionmilesfromthesun, Night School, Jet Trash, Dott, No Honeymoon, Blindness, Wunder Wunder, Daguerrotype, Voices from Deep Below, Tibican, Teenage Daydreams, Voluptuous Panic, Season of Strangers, The Virgance, Presents for Sally (out today!), Backward Houses, and, if we’re lucky, a brand new one from Schonwald. If we’re lucky. Trust us, we’ve got more music than time, so we’re gonna squeeze in all the quality we can fit, and then squeeze a little harder.

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