1. Live On Air Now DKFM Shoegaze Radio
Back to the top

We’re honored to trot out a number of world broadcast premieres from TBTCI Records. Renato Malizia has once again outdone himself, stitching together a new and exclusive compilation of dreamy, bendy tunes entitled, Come On Feel The NoiZe, BraZil Class ’17, released on Bandcamp June 9th. If you listen to DKFM, you’ll be well familiar with most of these artists: The Sorry Shop, Kid Foguete, Céus de Abril, Justine Never Knew The Rules, Loomer, Duelectrum, The Us and so many more. These are the artists who’ve spent the last half-decade lighting up Latin America, and lighting up our airwaves. Carefully curated (as usual) by Renato Malizia, this stands as a testimonial to the “deep bench” and incredible talent of these breakthrough artists.

From 10 am to 5 pm PDT (1p-8p Eastern), DJs Heretic and Ariel will season our regular programming with multiple world premieres from this landmark compilation. Of course, you’ll hear all of it during the New Tracks Weekend extravaganza, but, on the day of its release, it seems appropriate to call attention to and celebrate this unique album, and the hard work being done by TBTCI and these top-quality artists.

The full album is available June 9th, via the TBTCI Records Bandcamp site, and it’s a jewel. Congratulations to Renato for pulling together another epic release!

Overbooked, yes we are. Because, so much, so now. Anchoring the weekend is the new tribute to Slowdive from the venerable TBTCI Records. Renato has put together an all-star cast of awesomes, putting forth their best homage. Hey, we even mastered one of the tracks! We’re also pushing the newest and greatest from The Beremy Jets, who may well have put out the EP of the year thus far. Hard to see who else is in competition with this bit of gold. But there’s so much more fresh material! Teen Divorce EP dropped today, as did the new Wintergaze compilation out of Russia. New singles from The Death of Pop and Pure Morning shine. New ????? ???? reminds us why they’re a rotation staple. New White Tulips, new Tall Pines, new Daydream Cathedral, new Seventeen Years, new Terry vs. Tori, new Shady Elders, new Black Veils, new Fawns of Love, new highandfragile, new Candace, a sneak peek at the forthcoming Todavia single, plus recent classics from The Soft Spots and Schroeder. Cherry on top? New woozy Wozniak single that confirms their stature as the band to watch in 2017. And if that wasn’t enough, we have a throwback wayback from My Pet Genius that reminds you how the classics still hold us in thrall generic flagyl today. Have we forgotten stuff? Probably. We’re trying to load it all in on the fly, bear with us!

Of course we’re still pushing D.C.’s Venn until they become breakout stars. as well as Los Marcianos, Surf Curse, Hariguem Zaboy, Chillindra, Moth to the Flame, All in the Golden Afternoon, Bliss Wrecks, the stellar Visiting Diplomats, Orchin, Housing Crash, Battery Point, Vansire, Exiles, Fazerdaze and more. We’re booked solid.

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.
