It’s a busy weekend for us: video interview with Airs, spinning in support of The Union Trade and The Sleepover Disaster, and all the stuff we do every day to keep this epic monstrosity afloat. That doesn’t mean we’ve forgot to bring you shiny new and underheard shoegaze and dream pop to make your weekend sparkly. That would be heartbreaking, and we take this too seriously to let you down.
Start with choice cuts from the Bedroomcore Vol. 1 compilation via Hacktivism Records. Simply packed with fuzzy joy. Elizabeth Colour Wheel, Dear Tracks, Californian Sleepovers and much more. Add some new and unreleased songs from the love-at-first-hear Dreamwave, from Stoke-on-Trent, a first on our airwaves. New sounds from Memory Clinic, a rotation staple since forever ago, new music this week from Midwest Moms, crunchy new tuneage from Luke Johnson, fresh Nic Hessler, Late Night Jazz featuring Annemarie Duffy of Miniatures, The Psalms and Roxy Caroline, The California Death, we catch up with Nai Harvest, and do extended play with Heat-Ray from Calgary. A sadly overlooked goliath of sound. We’re gonna look them over.
Not forgetting some of our most recent awesomeness, including the title track from Airs’ new ‘Apart’ EP, Half, Worries, Basic Nature, Mosaicz, FOREVR, Alien Boy, 3701, Mew, A Tuesday Weld, Saturno Devorando, La Casa al Mare, Bad, Kitsch!!, Holy Machine, Title Fight, Daydream Nation, WESTKUST, The Microdance, and a whole lot more.
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.
