There is no letup. Impressive new music is coming fast and furious. As the weather turns warm, so do the tones. The new Pia Fraus single/EP is near release via Seksound label, with contributions from scene luminaries like Airiel and Mahogany, and it’s worth the wait. Following two electric performances on American network television, Tennis System dropped their new single early this morning, and it has all the volcanic energy you’ve come to expect from Matty & Co. We’ve got long-awaited new music from Oeil, Cigarettes After Sex, Schonwald, Slow Crush, Terry vs. Tori, Rat Columns, Girlpool, Eternal Something, Telyscopes, Aurora L’Orealis, IS BLISS, and so much more. As usual, more music than weekend!

Not to overlook last weekend’s gems, including Hazel English, Hoops, Say Sue Me, No Vacation, Season of Strangers, Watterson, Antipole, Tinfoil and Tape, The Age of Colored Lizards… we’re fully 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: listeners can vote thumbs-up/thumbs-down on all the new tracks, helping us determine what graduates to permanent rotation. Your voice counts! 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, as we’re 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!

Don’t try to program when you’re sick. You’ll end up with plaintive, mopey, dreamwashy tunes perfect for self-pity. Having said that, if they’re any good, you should play them on the radio! But we’re not wallowing here, noooo… We’re packed to the gills with new and freshly acquired tunes, from the likes of Stumbleine, Twin Oaks, Tibican, Black Static Line, Dead Horse One, The Spirit of the Beehive (recently reviewed here), TuT, Oeil, Night Fields, Presents for Sally, Noise, City of Me, Blackpool Astronomy, Bastos, The Foreign Resort, Flower Boy, and Portlands’s most impressive Visiting Diplomats. Plus we’re going all in with the new Glish album, and glad to finally have it in hand!

Don’t forget our most recent jewels from The Cherry Wave, La Casa al Mare, Soft Wounds, VVHILE, The Hours, Mama’s Boys, 溶けない名前(tokenai namae), I, Us, & We, Blonde Tongues, The Starlight Run, Dead Sea, The Past is Another Planet, Spotlight Kid, Echodrone, Youth In Bloom, The Yellow Traffic Light and much more. So many great songs, so little time…

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. Live365 listeners: it’s your votes that count! Your thumbs-up / thumbs down ratings determine what is kept in permanent rotation. Listen via the Live365 station page at DKFM, on iTunes Internet Radio under “Eclectic”, and on TuneIn Radio for iPhone/Android/Windows. Latin America relay: try Radio Terra. And still commercial-free everywhere! You can even keep up with the new tracks and artists you may have missed: we’re live-scrobbling via our last.fm profile. Now you’ll know what you heard, or catch up on what you missed.
