New weekend, new website, and cracking new tunes to tickle your ears. What an awesome responsibility! We headline the weekend with the new self-titled LP from Kestrels. We’ve been able to tinker around the edges of their impressive (but limited) output up to now. But the full LP drops, and wow. This was worth the wait. You’ll be hearing a lot more of this going forward, guaranteed. But we can’t stop/won’t stop there. Gossamer fuzz from SF’s Scarlina is a standout this weekend, as is the pre-release singles from Genders and Ghost Lake, plus the return of Tearjerker, the completion of Arbes’s new single, Blossom’s Pure Love, and the so-new-they’re-still-wet releases from Slowly and The Infinite Seas. What a time to be alive!
But we’re still pushing the fresh material from Pabst, True Widow, Angelic Milk, My Invisible Friend, Megumi Acorda, Flyying Colours, Tosk, Sansyou, Alcest, Emma Ruth Rundle, Kigo, Glace and much more. We’re going deeeeeep this weekend.

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!
