When you think you’ve hit a lull on quality new music, boom. There’s a whole bunch of fresh material awaiting your attention. New releases from station favorites Taffy (pictured), You’ll Never Get to Heaven, and Shimmer, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Pre-release awesomeness from Afor Gashum and Clustersun, and the newest sounds from Somewhere, Hypersleep, d.e.b.b.i.e., The Age of Colored Lizards, Dead Leaf Echo, The Daysleepers, tashaki miyaki, Slowly, and Den-Mate. And that’s just the stuff we can remember.

Add all that onto last week’s haul, including Monster Movie, Danxia, Dear Baby Deer, Slowdive, Figmennt, Seasurfer, Hater, Whimsical, Trementina, Fotoform, Slow Crush, Moon Loves Honey, Holygram… 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: 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!

slow-coda-you-againLos Angeles dream pop quintet Slow Coda tease their upcoming EP, You Again, with the streaming release of the first single, “Shimmer”. You Again is slated for July 7th release as a name-your-price purchase on the Slow Coda Bandcamp. At the risk of redundancy, “Shimmer” features a shimmering slow burn of guitar interplay supporting an angelic choral line. The beat skips and dances, as Slow Coda grabs your hand and leads you down the path. The jangle is strong in this one, and as a taster for the upcoming EP, “Shimmer” checks all the right boxes.

Since the release of their Night Window EP in 2013, Slow Coda have continued to explore the contours and corners of the sound that makes them unique. This is simply the next chapter in an impressive sonic and structural evolution.

Check out Slow Coda on Bandcamp, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram. Full EP release Tuesday, July 7th!
