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

When there’s so much new music to promote that we can’t even keep our dates straight? That’s a helluva month. And we’re topping last week already (but we’ll keep dates accurate this time). Airiel and Miniatures headline. Both albums dropping soon, surely you’ve preordered by now? But we’ve also been granted a few choice cuts from The Morelings debut LP, dropping next week. If we haven’t gotten you excited about Same Century yet, you may be listening to the wrong station. Plus, new music from Kindling, Lazy Day, Leones, Pink Milk, Poolshop, DoZzz, Medicine (not technically new, but the reissue counts), Tangible Rays, Citrus Clouds, Corasandel, Biltmore Dive, Magic Mountain, Cascadia Fault Line, FireFly, Outward, Bright As Yellow, Close Encounter, Wild Meadows, Swanhoppers, and the ever-sparkling Makaras Pen, in advance of their forthcoming EP. Plus, we’ll drag out a few classic chestnuts from Plums, who bring the jangle. Done and done!

That’s not to overlook last weekend’s new treasures, including MidNightSun, When The Sun Hits, Black Needle Noise, Swimming Tapes, Seeing Hands, Palm Haze, No Kill, Lacing, Death Bells, Auburn Lull, Silver Liz, 93millionmilesfromthesun, PolyAnna, Outward, Burn The Louvre, The Orchids, Volunteer Cheerleader, Ella Atlas, Alvvays, The Prids, Sun Colony and more! More music than weekend, naturally.

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.

Amidst the chaos of new releases, equipment shenanigans and weekend hijinks, we’ve managed to splice together a pretty epic New Tracks Weekend for you. Headliners (of course) are Half and Wozniak, whose new split single we previewed here, and is available as of this morning here. The new single, fresh this week, from station favorites Makaras Pen (including a new video!). Full-album deep diving with Eros and the Eschaton, Medicine Boy and Queridas (each worth your attention). New music from ioi and Fawns of Love, fresh-baked from sunny Central California. New music from Band Aparte, Dayflower, Babaganouj, A Shoreline Dream, Holi, Lacing and much more. And we’ll fight these machines that vex us until they submit to our will.

That’s not to neglect last weekend’s freshness, including Kindling, Whimsical, Angel Falls, Hoops, Field Mouse, Danxia, Daguerrotype, Heavy Ghost, Flirting, Seeing Hands, Alarm Drum, Dear Baby Deer, Sick, Exowaves, OSLO, The Pink Elephants, Zeit, Whistlejacket, TBTCI’s Cure tribute… if it’s new, if it’s important, we got it!

NEW. We’ve got the new. Starting with the brand new single from Angel Falls, with a cover of a classic Spell 336 track. Full of magic and sparkle, sure to tug at your heartstrings. New music from No Joy, in advance of the new album (and tour). Two tracks from the just-released Gloo by Edmonton’s Slow Girl Walking, dropped yesterday. A sneak preview of Dark Narrows‘ self-titled LP. These Marylanders are doing some interesting things with sound and songcraft. Plus long-awaited new sounds from Blush Response, a taste of Makaras Pen, dream-laden psych flavorings from Portland’s SWEATERS, a healthy dash of Shalloboi’s new album hopelessly, completely, the new single from Dawn Gazers, music from Point Being, a withering demo from Withershins, , sweet new classics from Borders of Sleep, and the elegaic new EP from Jett Brando (ex All Natural Lemon & Lime Flavors). Then, for your dark night of the soul, we’ll spill a few dreambroken tracks from Feverdreamt, whose new album Terban Te Ban is released April 10th on Blackjack Illuminist Records. Even at this late hour, we’re still heavy pushing in new tracks for first air this weekend, including radio edits of two shiny Vibrissae tracks, and the hazybeautiful new release from Elsa.

But be assured, we’re still heavy pushing the new music from Depth & Current, Hot Glass, Gleam, Since Always, the wickedly wondrous Native Lights, Winnebago, Venera 4, Monster Treasure, Light FM, Winter, Zeroine, Foliage, The Union Trade and MUCH more.

september-girlsDon’t be caught napping this weekend! We’re bringing world premieres, not-yet-available goodies, and freshly released treats for you all weekend. First, a World Premiere from Toxicbreed’s Funhouse Covers Compilation due later this year, in which Crisis Arm dismantles and reassembles a Slowdive classic. It’s beautiful torture. Then, choice cuts from the stellar new September Girls long-player, Cursing the Sea. It’s out now in Europe, available Stateside next month, and we’ve been chasing them for over a week now (it’s that good). Then, we celebrate next week’s release of Soft Science’s second LP, Detour, by playing whatever the man allows us to play. Your ears need to hear this!

We won’t stop there, however. New Static Daydream, new Vera Violets, new (to the US) Snowbird, new Makaras Pen, new Be Forest, new Dum Dum Girls, plus a Russian dream pop / folk crossover that’ll warm your heart. Малыш Камю (pronounced “Malish Kamu”), this duo is finally breaking out into the wider world. Also, a bucket of tracks from the new XO album Heart, that’ll feel both new and comfortably familiar. Finally, add in The Foreign Resort, tracks and remixes from next week’s release of their single “Alone”, including a New Canyons remix. Pure win.

How do we defund Congress? We’d contribute to that fund.

Videos are dropping hot and heavy around here, with two just today! Damnit Jim, I’m a doctor, not a VeeJay! Some of the best and the brightest in our scene are committing their sound to video, and the results are impressive. Posted in order of release:

The Foreign Resort, “Dead End Roads” single (available Sept. 30 via iTunes, Bandcamp and the usual suspects), with remixes by Screen Vinyl Image and Novachild. The classic TFR sound has returned, now visually accompanied by a lovely film noir.

Drowner, “Stay With Me” from Drowner’s new album You’re Beautiful, I Forgive You, out now on Saint Marie Records. The best of 2012 return to show they can get it done in 2013 without missing a beat.

Makaras Pen – “Mountain View”, available for a short time as a free download via their ReverbNation page. Makaras Pen has further refined their dream pop and shoegaze elements into a swirling, tuneful haze of bliss. Video dropped yesterday.

The Stargazer Lilies – “We Are The Dreamers”, title track from their forthcoming album. We Are The Dreamers releases October 22 via Graveface Records on LP & CD.

New Tracks Weekend breaks through the NSA jamming to bring you the newest from Spotlight Kid, Makaras Pen, Holland, Soft Shadows, Drifterswift, Tripwires, Space Waves, Synthesize Her, Syd Lane and SO much more. We’ll try to send coded messages during transmission to our agents in the field as well. Do not be alarmed.

Off and running at 5 pm PDT Friday night, and the new continues all weekend. Live365 listeners, it’s your votes that count! Stays or goes, you decide. Your thumbs-up / thumbs down ratings determine what is kept in permanent rotation. Listen via the Live365 station page at DKFM, iTunes Radio under “Eclectic”, and on TuneIn Radio and associated cheap metronidazole apps. 5 PM Pacific (8 PM Eastern), through Sundaya Full alpha artist listing follows:
