Win your weekend! New Tracks Weekend this weekend brings fresh new tunes from STFU, a supergroup (of sorts) comprised of Dean Garcia (Curve, SPC ECO) and Preston Maddox (Bloody Knives), with a slightly different sound than either of them are traditionally known for, but surely no less compelling. We’re also high on the new release from Man Is Not A Bird, as they sell their souls for gaze ‘n roll, with glorious results. We’re also pushing recent shiny treats from Sentinel, Whyme, The Pleasure Holes, 50FOOTWAVE (Kristin Hersh returns!), Grabbel and the Final Cut, Molly, Novanta, Thorn1, Palare and much more. Super packed, more music than time.
That’s not to forget last week’s fresh treats from The Florist, I Am Your Captain, The Stargazer Lilies (now on tour!), Captions, Whimsical, Heavy Heart, Jay Som, Minor Victories, Movie Brain, White Tulips, Elisabeth Like A Dream, The Pink Elephants, Swellebound, maquinas, and Introflirt. Deep bloody bench, that.
Remember: you get to vote on these tracks via the DKFM app! Thumbs up / thumbs down in the app helps us to know what stays and what goes. You support the station, you shape the sound.
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. Listen via the station page at DKFM, on Shoutcast, and on TuneIn Radio for iPhone/Android/Windows. Plus we have our new 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.
And, as always, thanks for listening, and thank you for your support!
