Pity the fools wot must compete with Slowdive this weekend. I mean, right? Label owners and bands marking calendar 6 to 11 months in advance, plotting official release date. Then the Slowdive tsunami hits, and all boats are swept to shore. We empathize. However, it’s our official job to celebrate all the quality new releases, this and every day. So we’ll celebrate Slowdive’s new self-titled album, their first new music in 22 years. Because it is the headline of the year thus far. But we’ll mix in the leading lights whose only misfortune was scheduling against this mammoth release. The new album from Shelling (Japan) is a perfect case in point. Both delicate and torrential, Shelling continues to push the boundaries of their sound on their freshly-issued third full album. Glorious new music from Soon, She Said (France) carves out all the perfect pop hooks, and bathes them in reverb. The new album from Mountain States is propulsive and tuneful, out now on Coaster Records. Regular listener? You’ll surely know Fazerdaze (NZ). The full Morningside LP is out now, and it’s everything you love about them, pressed down and overflowing. Dream Rimmy (Australia) fulfills all early promise with the new Heavy EP, out now. Day Wave keeps churning out the beach pop confections, and Russia’s Ethica bid for shoegaze stardom through their new single and video, just released. Finally, the new singles from birthdaygirl and Slow Crush deserve (nay, demand) your attention. So let’s pull the cork and celebrate!

Not to neglect last weekend’s new newness, as we’re still pushing Ride, Omega Vague, Todavia, Малыш Камю (Malish Kamu), Subsonic Eye, Afor Gashum, The Cult of Lip, Crystales, Red Rosie, Xeresa, Dama Scout, Softer Still, Sheer, Kindling, Kestrels, Malady of Sevendials and Darkswoon. PACKED. IN. TIGHT.

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, 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!

SO much new stuff, so much added to the big weekend extravaganza, it’s tempting to compress it all into a little cube and deliver it to your house. New Shelling, new White Blush, new Pains of Being Pure at Heart, pretty new Black Twig, new Selekhov, The Florist, Savage Sister, Save Switzerland, People of Nothing, Drifterswift, Kaela Sinclair, The Capsules, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, torrid new Ceremony, new Ablebody, Sharon Van Etten, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Bloom, Mercy Fist, The Widest Smiling Faces, plus remixes of Rachel Goswell, Asobi Seksu, Howling Bells, Mark Gardener, Mahogany and more. Plus 24 hours’ worth of music new to rotation in the last month. Literally, we’re overbooked, and happy about it.

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.
