Back to the top

Twas the weekend before DreamGaze, and all through the studio… sorry, /tangent. New Tracks Weekend THIS weekend revolves around headliners Miniatures, whose first single from the LP Jessamines is finally on our air. We’ll keep you posted on the release as it draws near. Plus, we’ll get you the preview of the spectacular Bloody Knives LP, I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This, due next week on Saint Marie Records. They’re on a pretty epic tour starting now-ish, we’d highly recommend catching them if you can! We’ll go deeper into the Nite Fields LP, with the Aussies just wrapping up an impressive Stateside tour. We’ve got new music from The Churchill Garden, Mallets, Choreography, Lost Film (7″ lathe cut single preorders close soon, order yours via The Native Sound label), The Dandelion Graves, Night Shapes, Spicy Ground Floor, a retrospective on the career of A.R. Kane (our interview appearing on these pages shortly), and a whole bunch more!

That’s not to neglect last week’s new additions, including Airiel, Sunflower Bean, A*Star, Rayning, Evvolves, Wintermilk, The Psalms, Bummed, Water Spaniel, Lobby Boys, Fields, Maths and the Moon, Dead White Tulips, Panda Panda, Moon Loves Honey, Mosley Bar, Heads, and Backtraveller. Much, much, much stuff!

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. Listen via the Radionomy station page at DKFM, on Shoutcast, and on TuneIn Radio for iPhone/Android/Windows. Plus we have our new 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.

And, as always, thanks for listening, and thank you for your support!

Austin’s incomparable Bloody Knives released the first single and video for their forthcoming EP, I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This. Tuneful, compelling, bleak, nobody makes an amazingly joyless noise like Bloody Knives. Your closest comparison is A Place To Bury Strangers, and still, this is not that. Signed to Saint Marie Records since forever ago, Bloody Knives have brought a controlled chaos to their output that is strong enough to peel paint from the wall near your hotplate. This single only amplifies the band’s aesthetic, and stakes a claim to dominate the noisier axis of shoegaze in 2016. “Reflection Lies” is all that and a bag of crack. All hail the kings.

Plans for a Spring tour are in the works, including several dates along the West Coast. We’ll keep you posted as we learn them, because we (like you) really don’t want to miss this live show.
