1. Live On Air Now DKFM Shoegaze Radio
Back to the top

If you’ve spent the last six months sleeping under a rock, there’s a new album from Ride out today. In fact, their first new LP in 21 years. If you don’t think that’s a thing, you may be tuned into the wrong radio station, my friends. Much like when Slowdive released a new album this year, a number of other new releases got overlooked (well, everywhere but here). But, you know us. Our job is to keep you up on all of it. New music from Deafcult, Wozniak, Hatchie, Youth Pool, Rocketship, Pink Frost, Pale Spectres, FOAMMM, Chain of Flowers, Bleach Bath, A Shoreline Dream, The Black Watch, Snowball ii, The Raft, Drift, Radiation Flowers, Rocket Ship TV, Nevermind Me, Amber Arcades, Dead Vibrations, M!R!M, Lake Wash, Glass, Vinyl Williams, Seahorse, Alvvays, Herlights, Alarm Drum… everything that fits, and some wot don’t.

Not to neglect last weekend’s fresh additions, including the sparkly new album from Panda Riot, plus Bellavista, Tearjerker, Fawns of Love, Softer Still, Colour of Spring, Doorbells, Beachglass, Sonic Jesus, Secret Meadow, Palm Haze, Daoda, Giant Surprise. We’ll put it all through the compactor, see just how much we can fit 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 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!

New music in abundance, this weekend is well overbooked! The crowning achievement is the release of the new Tears Run Rings LP, In Surges, which has got us in studio all twitterpated. Their deft touch, their consistent tunefulness remind us why theirs is one of the preeminent voices in the genre, and their occasional absences are really a loss for all of us. We’re also deep the new album from Dead Horse One, a bit more psych-rock than our usual, but their production pedigree (John Loring, Fleeting Joys) demands attention, even if it ultimately delayed a new Fleeting Joys album by a year and a half. But who’s complaining? Oh, right, we are. We’ve got sparkly new sounds from Deafcult, still awaiting more from Australia’s champions. The new EP from Galants, compelling tracks from Japan’s Scale, new singles from The Cherry Wave, Heavy Heart, The Kathys, and Slowly. We’ve primed choice cuts from the new Wedding Present LP, released today on vinyl in the U.S., and some of their most riveting tracks in a decade. We’re trotting out Cosmic Child, Bruising, Tonemirror, Portal de la Muerte, and much more.

Not to neglect last weekend’s fresh haze, including Vestidos, Mosaicz, Versus People, Melt, Lazy Legs, Hideous Towns, Housing Crash, Bloodhounds On My Trail, Drab Majesty, The Churchill Garden, Last Leaf Down, Whimsical, Cuesta Loeb, and SMR’s Static Waves compilation. We’re well booked!

We didn’t update your Gaze Guide last weekend, and for that we’re sorry. Plugged much new material in, but the only way you’d know is to listen. Rest assured, fellow travelers, we’ll post for this weekend and last, so you’ll know what your ears are hearing. We spun a world premiere from the new album by Aire Espacial, plus assaulted your senses with DEAFCULT. Add in Dissolve (not that one, a different one), everyone but me, Froth (new album is quite fuzzy), Swanhoppers, Vaadat Charigim, Waterfall, Stella Diana and more. This weekend, we add to the mix new sounds and recent classics from The Noise Tigers, Hawk, Downers, maantis, Broken Water, Turnover, starcleaner, purr, Shark Tape, wavetemple, dreamtiger and more.

If you’re in the area, we’d love to see you out!
