First crossing our radar with their “EQUALS” EP at the dawn of 2018, dreamy Spanish noisegazers Uniforms have presented an unique and engaging sound: part bubblegum, part sludge, all charm. Sonically diverse, always finding the best arrangement and instrumentation to serve the song, Uniforms has never been afraid to go their own way. From spacey […]

There aren’t enough column inches to describe what we’ve put together for this weekend’s DreamGaze Worldwide presentation. Superlatives like “new”, “rare”, “never-before-seen” fail to do justice to just what’s been put together for our live virtual festival this weekend. We’ll just enumerate a few highlights for you. New Age Healers (pictured above): The Seattle post-psychedelic […]

Not exactly a secret: these are difficult days for all of us. Fans, bands, everyone is looking for some uplift right about now. Something to smile about, something to celebrate. We have an idea we’ve been working on. We’ve seen multiple platforms trying to do quality things for live performance video streaming. But there’s always […]

By now it should come as no surprise. We’d had every hope to maintain an epic event in Austin this year. The last week has seen international travel restrictions (that terminated Slow Crush tour), border entry/re-entry concerns (that terminated Tallies tour), concerns about U.S. Coronavirus “hot spots” (that terminated Reveries tour). Then federal guidance limited […]

Cincinnati, Ohio. Not the first place you’d think of when you’re looking for an incubator of shoegaze and dream pop textures. Individual bands are making credible noises in corners of Ohio, but the sound remains largely underrepresented in Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati. Slow Glows calls Cincy home, and they’re flying the flag high. Their last album, […]

One of the standout releases of 2020 has been the second album (and third official release) from Postcards, The Good Soldier. A sublime journey through dream pop and sparkle, this LP’s release on January 3rd generated buzz and airplay from worldwide outlets, including Seattle’s KEXP, and has been an enduring favorite on our airwaves, with […]

Fractured and discordant, yet fresh and familiar. That’s the sound of Yonkers, New York’s Guilty Giraffe. A touch of classic Swirlies adventurism, early DIIV guitar sparkle, and MBV guitar overdrive, all mashed together into a compelling whole. We’ve been spinning the enchanting ascending guitar signatures of “Filter” since its November release, and it provided compelling […]

Regular listeners of DKFM are well aware of Denton dreampop darlings Rei Clone, who’ve been making a joyful noise since 2015. Their heaviest rotation single, “Wave“, broke our airwaves with a quickness, solidifying this band in our permanent rotation, and in our listeners’ hearts. It’s a heavy, fuzzy, cavernous sound, but buried underneath a wheelbarrowful […]

We’ve been fans and advocates of XO since their Heart LP in early 2014. Jeff and Jake Turner, along with Joseph Assef on drums, produced a tuneful, churning jangle on the album that’s immediately engaging. Buoyed by catchy singles like “Waste” and “Sweet”, XO built their own woozy wonderland that was as respectful to classic […]

Chicago post-punk/noise rock quartet Ganser are no joke. They’ve built a fan base far and wide with their compelling live shows, and earned much respect from shoegaze and dream pop artists in the area as being among THE scene movers of the past two years. They’ve always build on a propulsive postpunk rhythm section to […]
