Pretend you’re us. You start out thinking you’ve got not much to add to the New Tracks Weekend rotation. Then, 24 hours before air, seems like your wheelbarrow is overloaded with new additions. And, even as you sideload and cut promo for all the new music, you realize you’ve lost another three new releases you’d intended to shine a spotlight on. This is us. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but usually varying degrees of this. So, subject to change, here’s the joy we’re boosting this weekend (no particular order): Telyscopes, Heaters, SHINY TIMES, Backwarmer, Calling All Astronauts, Softsurf, Retrieval, Pabst, Autisti, Bare Pale, Foliage, Saccades, Honeyrude, Cigarettes After Sex, Beliefs, Sylvie, A Thousand Hours, Seven Tin Stars, Greg-Nunn, and choice cuts from the Dut Dut Dut Dut compilation we premiered last night. V v packed. Packed, I tell you.

That only adds to last weekend’s fresh mayhem stew, including Cat in the Case, Houseplants, Dakota, Speedy Ortiz, Shady Bug, The Dreamtoday, Morning TV, See Through Dresses, plant cell, Mermaidens, Spotlights, Laedj, Juvenile Juvenile, Dazy Crown, Foliage, Strange Lights, Autumn’s Grey Solace and more. We mean it when we say: there’s more new music worth hearing than hours in the day to play it.

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!

Weekend! We’ve waited all week for this. Like your corner dealer, we’re pushing the NEW stuff. Like the new singles from The Foreign Resort (shortly headed for Canadian tour), Wozniak (whose forthcoming LP is something we’ve been looking forward to for months), and Venn (who continue to impress with each new release). But that’s not all… we’re impressed by the tasty, grungy treats from Abusive Language, a new band from Philly that’s bringing the edge. We’re high on the impressive new single from Retrieval, Tunisia’s finest export. And Desperate Journalist… music so good, your eyes will roll back in your head.

And that’s on top of last week’s amazing adds, including Taffy, You’ll Never Get to Heaven, Shimmer, Clustersun, Afor Gashum, Somewhere, Hypersleep, d.e.b.b.i.e., The Age of Colored Lizards, Dead Leaf Echo, The Daysleepers, tashaki miyaki, Slowly, Den-Mate and much more. What would you pay for this much fresh entertainment?
