If you’ve spent the last six months sleeping under a rock, there’s a new album from Ride out today. In fact, their first new LP in 21 years. If you don’t think that’s a thing, you may be tuned into the wrong radio station, my friends. Much like when Slowdive released a new album this year, a number of other new releases got overlooked (well, everywhere but here). But, you know us. Our job is to keep you up on all of it. New music from Deafcult, Wozniak, Hatchie, Youth Pool, Rocketship, Pink Frost, Pale Spectres, FOAMMM, Chain of Flowers, Bleach Bath, A Shoreline Dream, The Black Watch, Snowball ii, The Raft, Drift, Radiation Flowers, Rocket Ship TV, Nevermind Me, Amber Arcades, Dead Vibrations, M!R!M, Lake Wash, Glass, Vinyl Williams, Seahorse, Alvvays, Herlights, Alarm Drum… everything that fits, and some wot don’t.
Not to neglect last weekend’s fresh additions, including the sparkly new album from Panda Riot, plus Bellavista, Tearjerker, Fawns of Love, Softer Still, Colour of Spring, Doorbells, Beachglass, Sonic Jesus, Secret Meadow, Palm Haze, Daoda, Giant Surprise. We’ll put it all through the compactor, see just how much we can fit in.
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!
