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.

We are weekending. We’ve dense-packed some real sparklers to shimmer in the summer haze. We’re long Spain’s Ghost Transmission, and we’re finally pushing the full LP from the PNW’s sonic kingpin Erik Blood, with the impressive Touch Screens. But there’s so much more on offer this weekend, including new music from Thrushes, Everything Fades, Beach House, some bloody epic bangers from Bristol’s Milk Teeth, new textures from Noir For Rachel, a fresh cover tune from Kindling, a sonic poke from Chromatics, a fresh new track from Daydream Cathedral, Sundara Karma, Communions, the return of Morning Harvey, and some tasty indie crossover from Grave School. Not content to rest there, we’ll be tossing out a few tracks from the impressive charity compilation series, Rock Back for Nepal. Purchase proceeds from this sprawling three-volume project help to rebuild destroyed neighborhoods and lives following the Nepalese disaster, and the number of luminaries signed on to help is most impressive.

Of course we’re still pushing new music from Season of Strangers, Tamaryn, Pure Phase Ensemble 4 feat. Mark Gardener, Presents for Sally, Static Daydream, Shallow, Makaras Pen, VHS Dream, Angel Falls, Dream Suicides and a whole bunch more.
