Amidst a wash of new releases, we’re also beset with difficulties with our carrier network, which is collapsing and restarting servers along the chain. We soldier on. The new LP from Elsa (pictured above), plus the long-awaited return of PARLOUR (if it seems like it’s been years, you’re not far wrong). New music from Palm Haze, The Smilies, The Stargazer Lilies, WIDOWSPEAK, Intenna, Justine Never Knew the Rules, Black Sea, Acaena Eterna, FOREVR (genre shift in full effect, we’ll try to shuffle in the most relevant material), HuanHuan, Previous Love, Thud, Todos tus tanques soviéticos and much more. We’ll leave the light on for you, light a candle for us.
Not to neglect last weekend’s fresh additions, including Lowtide, Softsurf, Knifeplay, Crash City Saints, The Sorry Shop, Wildhoney, Todavia, The Luxembourg Signal, Surf Rock is Dead, Lazy Legs, Deerhoof, Soda Lilies, IO Echo, Alvvays, Honeyspider, Pure Ghost, Pia Fraus, Fringe, Walking Misery, Mossbreaker, Flying Cape Experience, thelakesidedrive and more. Booked, packed, overbooked.
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: 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!
