Epic. It’s a huge weekend for us, as we pack in a wealth of music for the weekend. Some brand new, some that we were blissfully ignorant of until this week. For instance, Electro Group. They’ve been churning out compelling music off and on for nearly two decades, and we only heard about them following this new release? That’s our failing. Sacramento’s Electro Group may have their influences clearly stamped, but the songs themselves are purely original and compelling. Unsurprisingly, we’ll go deep with the new LP as well as turn-of-the-century releases. Then there’s Morning Harvey. We remember being early adopters of this Aussie band when they were busting out, but then we lost track. Now we have an opportunity to catch up. But, speaking of new-new, we’d be remiss to miss the new LP from Jay Som (recently covered by Putzfork, but we won’t hold that against Melina & Co.). We’re ridiculously keen on the new double-single from Silver Liz, equally torrid and lilting. And that’s a thing. Plus we’re turned on to the debut from South Texas’ Fun With Ether, perfectly molded and ready to shine. And we’re rich with new singles from Sheer, HYLA, Danxia, Dead Gaze, Lunar Twin, Maheekats, A Thousand Hours, LOZA, LLOLLYANNA, Secret Shine, Prepare My Glider and MUCH more. Plus we’ll catch up with Diet Cig, Lazyeyes, Our Girl and a cast of many. So much stuff to stuff!
That only adds to last weekend’s new freshness, including Fawns of Love, Whimsical, Ride, Babaganouj, No Vacation, Daysee, Slowly, Life on Venus, The Mites, Delay Trees, 93MillionMilesFromTheSun, Sleepwalk, The Wrecking Queens, Excuses for Skipping, VENN, Froth, Novella… all of the songs, all of the time.
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 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’. 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!
