Did nobody take the Winter holidays off? So many new releases! Well, so much the better for us (and for you, the listener). New music from Brazil, from upstart shoegazers Terraplana (pictured above), whose exílio EP is rich and full of youthful charm. Of course we’ve got the new single from Linda Guilala, which we had the honor of premiering two days ago. Of course today sees the release of the new album from Jaguwar, which diverges from previous sonic onslaught, but maintains the charm and creativity of the band. We’ve got the new Ride, as well as Relay Tapes, Honeyhead, Ceremony, Jay Som, Medejin, Plant Cell, Venus in Fuzz, Vyva Melinkolya, and the “grungemo” sonic stomp of Yeah, Cool. And, yes, we just made that term up. Maybe it appears somewhere in the interwebz, but, even so, we’re calling grungemo ours.
And that only adds to last weekend’s new sound, including The Malady of Sevendials, Blushing, Swirlpool, Bloom Waves, dethgaze, Fourth Way, Gliss, The Love Agenda, Knifeplay, Creature in the Spiral, Magic Love, Prince Bunny, Float Down the Liffey, Shoe Shine Six, Twin Oaks, Death Valley Rally, The Voices, Magnet School, Dead Vibrations, Helicon, Black Heart Death Cult and so much more.
And if that’s somehow not enough, you can always go back and listen to our Top Shoegaze and Dream Pop Tracks of 2017. The show itself is four plus hours of sonic delights, thanks to listener votes throughout the year via the DKFM app. If you missed it, well, it’s the best of what we do.
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 playlist 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: listeners can vote thumbs-up/thumbs-down on all the new tracks, helping us determine what graduates to permanent rotation. Your voice counts! 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, as we’re 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!
