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

We’re honored to trot out a number of world broadcast premieres from TBTCI Records. Renato Malizia has once again outdone himself, stitching together a new and exclusive compilation of dreamy, bendy tunes entitled, Come On Feel The NoiZe, BraZil Class ’17, released on Bandcamp June 9th. If you listen to DKFM, you’ll be well familiar with most of these artists: The Sorry Shop, Kid Foguete, Céus de Abril, Justine Never Knew The Rules, Loomer, Duelectrum, The Us and so many more. These are the artists who’ve spent the last half-decade lighting up Latin America, and lighting up our airwaves. Carefully curated (as usual) by Renato Malizia, this stands as a testimonial to the “deep bench” and incredible talent of these breakthrough artists.

From 10 am to 5 pm PDT (1p-8p Eastern), DJs Heretic and Ariel will season our regular programming with multiple world premieres from this landmark compilation. Of course, you’ll hear all of it during the New Tracks Weekend extravaganza, but, on the day of its release, it seems appropriate to call attention to and celebrate this unique album, and the hard work being done by TBTCI and these top-quality artists.

The full album is available June 9th, via the TBTCI Records Bandcamp site, and it’s a jewel. Congratulations to Renato for pulling together another epic release!

We’re locked and loaded for the weekend (and don’t we all really need a break after this week?). Brand new and new-to-you music from Youthmemory, The Churchill Garden (featuring vocal contributions from Whimsical and Omega Vague), Night Shapes, Vibrissae (taking a star turn at this year’s Seagaze Festival), Sketch Jets, Baby Honey, Kid Foguete (new release LP A Brief Study on How to Fail Completely Vol. 1 really raises their game), Night Flowers, Great Black Night, Lost Film, Sketch Jets, Water, Laura Rai, Lilith Cage and bunches more!

Not to neglect last weekend’s freshness, including Lazy Legs, Sexores, Sustains, No Joy, Tibican, Cassettes on Tape, Winter, Lubec, Infinity Girl, The Baltic, Miniatures, Acid Party, Day Wave, Candace, Fire to the Stars, Movie Brain, Newmoon, The Death of Pop, Sullen Ray, Dead Vibrations, Clan de Venus, Feels, Astral Tide, benji24… rather a lot, really.

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 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. 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!
