Back to the top

It’s Brief Candles week. With all the newness we’ve shoveled into the big weekend, Brief Candles’ new LP stands head and shoulders above the rest, and not just because it seems we’ve waited forever for it. So we’ll be celebrating that release this weekend, and many weeks to come. But we have so much more on offer. The new EP from Japan’s CQ shows a return to epic form. We’ve got choice cuts from the new Percolator album that’ll bend your mind. Fresh tracks from Evening Glow, Haunter, Everything Fades, Glitter Trails, DoZzz, WY, The BV’s, submeet, Misty Coast, Hexagrams, Crown of Pity, A Thousand Hours, XO, Amusement Parks on Fire, Pastel Ruins, Blushing, Pink Milk, Flower Crown, Wrip, and so much more.

Not to ignore last weekend’s new music, including Aerofall, Sadfields, The Medicine, Small Planets, The Luxembourg Signal, Slow Glows, My Proper Skin, mi andromeda, Winter, Pony Fringe, GYHT, Bur, Breaking Forms, and The Legendary House Cats. All weekend, packed in.

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 iOSAndroid 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!
