We’ve survived a major software upgrade at the network, so that we can bring you the freshest, shiniest sounds. We roll out the sparkly, compelling debut from Austin’s Blushing, already causing commotion in these studios. We couldn’t recommend them more highly. We’ve got newborn sounds from The Stargazer Lilies, Manisnotabird (used to be Man is Not a Bird, so that’ll cause some head-scratching), Ummagma, Group Photos, Waterfall, Brisbane’s grungy Figures, Tel Aviv’s Screens 4 Eyes, plus we finally get hands ’round the new LPs from Last Movement and Daughter, we catch up with Two Harbors, Black Pill and more. We can melt this beautiful mess down into pure gold.

Let’s not forget last weekend’s new treasures, including Creepoid, Tears Run Rings, The Marbles Jackson, Mood Dye, Rachel Sermanni, Sorry Escalator, June Parker, Sonic Visions, nyre, Soviet Soviet, Is Bliss, The Tunnels, Glass Horses, Velvet Dreams, Whimsical, Car Crash Sisters, The City Gates, and 93MillionMilesFromTheSun. Full of sparkle.

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!
