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?

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!

Amidst the chaos of new releases, equipment shenanigans and weekend hijinks, we’ve managed to splice together a pretty epic New Tracks Weekend for you. Headliners (of course) are Half and Wozniak, whose new split single we previewed here, and is available as of this morning here. The new single, fresh this week, from station favorites Makaras Pen (including a new video!). Full-album deep diving with Eros and the Eschaton, Medicine Boy and Queridas (each worth your attention). New music from ioi and Fawns of Love, fresh-baked from sunny Central California. New music from Band Aparte, Dayflower, Babaganouj, A Shoreline Dream, Holi, Lacing and much more. And we’ll fight these machines that vex us until they submit to our will.

That’s not to neglect last weekend’s freshness, including Kindling, Whimsical, Angel Falls, Hoops, Field Mouse, Danxia, Daguerrotype, Heavy Ghost, Flirting, Seeing Hands, Alarm Drum, Dear Baby Deer, Sick, Exowaves, OSLO, The Pink Elephants, Zeit, Whistlejacket, TBTCI’s Cure tribute… if it’s new, if it’s important, we got it!

half-wozniak-mute-swanIn a surprise announcement, two of the UK’s preeminent sonic sculptors are releasing a split single, with all proceeds to benefit DKFM station operations. Half, via Gateshead, burst on the scene with their first single “Mind Laps”, and immediately caught attention around the globe. Awash in reverb, strummed rhythm and a slowly unfolding progression, “Mind Laps” broke enough genre molds to earn a permanent rotation space in the first month of release. Jonny Gray’s original project has continued to evolve, leading up to the debut LP Here Lies, released this April.

Wozniak, on the other hand, has been experimenting with textures and dynamics since mid-2013. Never predictable, and impossible to pigeonhole, Wozniak draws from post-rock, shoegaze, occasional tribal rhythms, with dashes of psych thrown in for good measure. Always unique, always challenging, and expanding your musical boundaries. That’s what we’ve come to expect from Wozniak.

In this new split-single release, we chatted up Jonny (Half) and Simon (Wozniak) for more info.

DKFM: Tell us about your contribution to this release, and how it came together?

Jonny (Half): I had the guitar parts left over from my album. I still thought they had potential, but wasn’t sure where to take them. I’d been a fan of Wozniak since hearing Snow Effect on DKFM and just sent Simon an email to see if they’d be up for a collaboration – things just progressed from there.

Simon (Wozniak): When Jonny got in touch I was really intrigued to see what we could come up with together. I had originally thought of remixing Mute Swan, but when I began to make some new sounds I really felt like it came together and a collaboration began to feel more natural than a remix. It’s a good mix of Half and Wozniak – hypnotic guitar parts underpinned by modulating drones!

DKFM: What made you take up this banner, and decide to support DKFM?

Jonny (Half): Both Half and Wozniak are super grateful for the support DKFM has shown us in the past and because the station indirectly brought us together, it just felt right. I’m just keen to repay the support in some small way.

We at DKFM couldn’t be more grateful for the support of quality artists, and dedicated listeners. Keep an eye peeled, release of the new “name-your-price” single is imminent, with proceeds benefiting DKFM!

NEW! This weekend’s New Tracks Weekend brings the world broadcast premiere of Flying Cape Experience’s We’re All Gonna Die EP, out Sunday on El Vals de Conejo.

This EP brings tunes you know, but helps complete the picture. Finally a world premiere from Astral Tide, with a buzzsaw of a tune from their forthcoming EP.

Not world broadcast premieres, but still pre-release, we have new music from Wozniak, Bow & Spear, Noire, and Melbourne’s venerable Hideous Towns (who set the guitars to ‘sparkle’ on this one). We’ll finally get the new Novella LP, Something Must Change, the attention it richly deserves. We’re also ‘long’ the new album from Camión. Los Mares is a dreamy, fuzzy confection for your head. Expect to hear a lot of beachy joy from Las Robertas, jangletastic where can i buy flagyl uk tunes from Day Wave, plus seasoning from Babushka, Cloakroom, Spirit Maces, Justine Never Knew the Rules, stilt., Title Fight, Tamaryn, The Dream Pop Project, Robin Guthrie & Mark Gardener, the brand-spanking new Deep Fields EP, and Carisa Bianca Mellado.

Because that’s what we do. There’s so much more we could tell you, but… you’ll just have to listen.
