Just Mustard – Heart Under

Back in the heady, pre-plague days of 2018 Just Mustard marched on to the scene with their astonishing debut album Wednesday. I hadn’t heard anything quite like it. There was a definite shoegaze aesthetic to the thing but it was more, it was different. Then came the singles ‘Frank’ and ‘Seven’ in 2019. Both of which only hooked and reeled me in further.  Since then, their music has continued to […]

New Tracks Weekend, May 6-8, 2022

Bandcamp Friday usually means double the usual haul, as so many artists have something special to trot out for the occasion, and this weekend is no different. We're celebrating the newest releases from Hater, Trauma Ray, Droopies, Holy Forrest, and Hazel English (pictured above)... and that's just the tip of the sonic iceberg. We're also thrilled to present some fresh but perhaps underheard cuts from Uniforms, Kraus, supergloom, Tombstones In […]

New Tracks Weekend, April 29 – May 1, 2022

PACKED, and thrilled for it. We're rolling out the new and breaking sounds from a host of known and new artists this weekend, not the least of which is Barcelona's Salvana (pictured above). You've heard them teased on our air in the past week, by The Shoegaze Collective AND Melomania Safety Zone. But we'll be going all in, promoting a deep dive into the album, showing why it's such a […]

Resplandor – Tristeza

There are some bands who need very little by way of an introduction to a DKFM audience. Resplandor fit firmly into that category. That said, stick with me while I introduce the band to a DKFM audience. Based in the Netherlands, the band have been creating the most beautiful of gaze since the year 2000. Originally from Peru, the band has garnered global attention for their sonic signature. One that […]

New Tracks Weekend, April 22-24, 2022

A power-packed weekend we have in store... the newest albums from Hatchie and The Earth Earth lead all comers, in tunes and in buzz. And we're absolutely here for both, in their own creative spaces. But we're also keen on a raft of new tuneage from SGO (pictured above, formerly Syrup, Go On, with a single releasing next week), Leem of Earth, Singing Gum, Love Chemical, Dottie, Haiku Garden, blindlace, […]

New Tracks Weekend, April 15-17, 2022

Not quite sure how we got backed up with new music submissions for consideration, but twelve hours later, we're batched and sorted, culled and collated, ready to rock. Among our headliners this weekend: Stomp Talk Modstone dropped a new album for your thoughtful consideration, and not too terribly long after their last exceptional long player. We're bumping the newest efforts from Tallies, Sungaze, Rancho Relaxo, Maida Rose, and Ohio Mark. […]

New Tracks Weekend, April 8-10 2022

We've got a deep bench this weekend, and we're thrilled to share our bounty with you. Headliners include Sun's Signature, the new Elizabeth Fraser project causing much buzz, Panda Riot and New Age Healers, both having released unexpected singles today (and both cannot be missed), and Ursula (pictured above), a band from Perth that's made big waves on regional radio/Triple J, but now seem poised for international fame... imagine if […]

Whimsical – Melt

Two years on from the release of their last album, Bright Smiles & Broken Hearts, DKFM favourites and shoegaze pals Whimsical are back with their new LP, Melt. The band, Krissy Vanderwoude (words) and Neil Burkdoll (music), gave us a taster of what was to come with the single ‘Gravity' last summer. With my appetite truly whetted I was ready for the album to land and here it is. So, […]

New Tracks Weekend, April 1-3, 2022

Bandcamp Friday, and it's an embarrassment of riches. More new tracks added this weekend than about any weekend we can remember in the past year. Headliners come from some long awaited releases: Young Prisms, Astragal, Whimsical and Moodlighting (pictured above). While there's much to adore from all three, we'd call your attention to Moodlighting new album Boy wonder, especially our pick to click, "Drowning in it". Deceptively compelling, by turns […]

Shand, Foliage, Stellar Ruins, twen, Castoff, Mercvrial, Gone, and a sparkler from Primitive Heart. And that's just the stuff we can recall at the moment. And that's in addition to […]
