Still recovering from last weekend’s epic Seagaze festival, but we’ve spent most of the week combing through all the impressive new submissions for New Tracks Weekend, and we’re packed. Obviously we’re pushing the new single from Ride, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’re deep into the new albums from Omega Vague, Todavía, Малыш Камю (Malish Kamu), Subsonic Eye and Afor Gashum, plus the new singles from the Cult of Lip (new album and video soon!), Crystales, Red Rosie, Xeresa, Dama Scout, Softer Still, plus the new split EP from station favorites Kindling and Kestrels (someone got the best “K” bands together and said, “hey, let’s do a split!”?), the new Psychic Quarry EP from SHEER, the new extended play from Sustains, and we catch up with Darkswoon and Malady of Sevendials, fresh from their Seagaze Festival performances.
Speaking of which, we’re still pushing the full LP from Fotoform, who put on a sparkly performance for Seagaze attendees. Plus we’re still heavy-dropping tracks from Bugjar (most buzzed track last weekend, hands down), DIV I DED, Northeastern Railroads, Flowerbomb, LLOLLYANNA, Static Daydream, The Infinite Seas, and The Investment. All of the newness.
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 iOS, Android 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!
