Back to the top

Everything arrives at the same time. We’re doing our part in keeping it all together, and giving it all due respect and love. We start with the ridiculously long-awaited full-length from Bellavista. Rex & Co. broke away from Tamaryn to try to polish and perfect this presentation, and the hard work has paid off. But that competes with another LP we’ve been waiting on, Panda Riot’s Infinity Maps. Finally. See (or at least hear) what we’ve been buzzing about for months now. But we’ve also been spooling out world premiere tracks from Renato Malizia’s TBTCI Records compilation, also released today. While Renato has been at the forefront of promoting this sound globally, this is a special project, born of love, laser-focused on the best music Brazil has to offer the shoegaze & dreampop scenes. From station stalwarts like Loomer and Justine Never Knew The Rules, to “new to us” bright surprises like The Us and I Kill Kane, this compilation is a labor of love from all involved, and the quality shines through. Grab your own copy of Come On Feel The Noise: BraZil Class of ’17 at TBTCI’s Bandcamp site.

That’s a long-arse first paragraph, and we’ve only covered the albums! We’ve got new tracks in from Tearjerker, Fawns of Love, Softer Still, Colour of Spring, Doorbells, Beachglass, Sonic Jesus, Secret Meadow, Palm Haze, M!R!M!, Daoda, Giant Surprise, and much more. So, so much new.

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. 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!

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!
