The Churchhill Garden – “Rearview Mirror”

Andy Jossi is never one to do a thing halfway. His sonic sculptures rival his visual work in depth and intensity, as rich visuals often match sumptuous sonic swells. Sure, we may have occasionally chided about near-epic-length songs, but The Churchhill Garden is his project: he writes the sonic structure, he decorates with swirls and filigree, and he allows each creation to unfold at its own pace, never sacrificing until […]

Blushing – The Fires

It's not really supposed to happen this way. By the time the third single from a forthcoming album drops, you can often expect an attendant drop in quality. This is not that, in fact, far from it. We, like the rest of the shoegaze-loving world, have been waiting for the February 18th release of Blushing's Possessions LP on Kanine Records. The first two singles were understandably a cut above, reaching […]

Älägator – Unen Syvyydessä

There are anomalies, there are outliers, and there's Älägator. A Finn-inspired quintet that was born in Edinburgh, U.K. (currently residing in NYC), specializing in a sort of slowcore dream pop that takes you to the outer reaches of imagination. While the instrumentation is tightly and deftly controlled, it belies a certain fragility, in that it feels like it can fall apart at any moment. If you're looking for comparisons, keep […]

Premiere: T. G. Shand – “Lemony”

No, not "Lemmy", that's Motörhead. "Lemony". It's like a fresh lemon tart with powdered sugar sprinkled generously on top. Coming from T. G. Shand, formerly of station standouts Miniatures, but now a solo songwriting powerhouse, it's another impressive chapter in a fresh and surprising sonic evolution. The first new single since February's "The Ease", it's got so many engaging elements competing for your ear, and it's all sonic sugar. Guitar […]

Wednesday – “One More Last One”

We've been anticipating the single drops for the upcoming Wednesday album, drop by drop. This Asheville, North Carolina quintet are stumbling towards excellence with every step forward. By now you may have heard "Handsome Man", one of the singles in hot rotation on our air. But all is tease, all is temptation, as there's so many more facets to this band, revealing on the Twin Plagues LP release this 13 […]

Catching up with Lightfoils, 2021 Edition

New song. New video. New cast? Seems like a whole lot has been going on with Lightfoils. We last checked in with the crew in August 2019, pre-covid, as the future still looked limitless. As cornerstone artists on the DKFM platform, it's up to us to find out what's going on now, and what it means for this talented lot going forward. We caught up with the modified cast of […]

Video Premiere: Crystal Canyon – “Luminous”

If you have any familiarity with the station, you know we're pretty keen on Crystal Canyon. With the new album, yours with affection and sorrow, already pegged to compete with the top ten albums of 2021 by year's end, this band of sonic veterans is already well regarded in these studios. What makes the sound so special? It's not terribly complex, it doesn't bend or break genre rules, or take […]

Postcards – “Home is So Sad”

Martial drums open the new single from Beirut, Lebanon's Postcards, and you're forced to pay attention. This is an urgency, a constrained frenzy we're not used to from Postcards, who specialize in richly textured dream pop. And it's a bit of a walk from their dizzying-but-intimate DreamGaze Worldwide performance to this claustrophobic opening. And it's here where context matters most. Since we last checked in with Postcards, a big chunk […]

Video Premiere: Shallow Waves – “Voices in Discord”

We've been spinning Toronto's Shallow Waves since last year. Their engaging post-punk/fuzzy noise is a heady confection, reasonably comparable to a collision between early JAMC and Bloody Knives. Much like BK, compelling propulsion drives the songs, and carries you through the presentation. Gazey influences abound, but always grounded in that insistent, unyielding propulsion. Flourishes of psych, APTBS-inspired guitar chaos abound, and you feel like you've wandered into an epic soundscape […]
