Pretend you’re us. You start out thinking you’ve got not much to add to the New Tracks Weekend rotation. Then, 24 hours before air, seems like your wheelbarrow is overloaded with new additions. And, even as you sideload and cut promo for all the new music, you realize you’ve lost another three new releases you’d intended to shine a spotlight on. This is us. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but usually varying degrees of this. So, subject to change, here’s the joy we’re boosting this weekend (no particular order): Telyscopes, Heaters, SHINY TIMES, Backwarmer, Calling All Astronauts, Softsurf, Retrieval, Pabst, Autisti, Bare Pale, Foliage, Saccades, Honeyrude, Cigarettes After Sex, Beliefs, Sylvie, A Thousand Hours, Seven Tin Stars, Greg-Nunn, and choice cuts from the Dut Dut Dut Dut compilation we premiered last night. V v packed. Packed, I tell you.

That only adds to last weekend’s fresh mayhem stew, including Cat in the Case, Houseplants, Dakota, Speedy Ortiz, Shady Bug, The Dreamtoday, Morning TV, See Through Dresses, plant cell, Mermaidens, Spotlights, Laedj, Juvenile Juvenile, Dazy Crown, Foliage, Strange Lights, Autumn’s Grey Solace and more. We mean it when we say: there’s more new music worth hearing than hours in the day to play it.

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 control the weekend. We expedite the awesome. We polish the newness. As anticipated, we’re all over the new release from Brilliant Beast, one of our most anticipated of the year. And, as we also anticipated, they do not disappoint. Did we say anticipated enough? But we also go long with another special release: Star Tropics’ Lost World just dropped, and it’s likely to burn up iPods all summer. This is the sound of summer, and we can’t recommend it enough. But we’re also bumping the long-form release of Grabbel and the Final Cut, now out in its entirety as an LP. We’re also pushing Agent Blå, New Youth, Overlake, Saccades, We, the Pigs, Beach Fossils, Everso, Caterwall (new lineup, modified sound), Guest Directors and so much more. And of course we’re boosting the first new music from The Daysleepers in ages. Both a welcome return to form, and a graduation to the next level, “Creation” is a fuzzy, watery gem. Again, more music than hours in the weekend. We’ll keep you company, day and night.

But we’ve not forgotten last weekend’s fresh freshness, including DEAFCULT, Blankenberge (interview coming soooooon), Shrike, Parábolas del Bosque, The Bilinda Butchers, Black Sea. The Starlight Run. Foxxxy Mulder. Jessica93. uvii (formerly Ultraviolet). Battery Point. Paper Daggers. Houseplants. Ancient Tapes. Marker. All the new. Plus we’re tossing in a rarity: first wave ‘gazers Moving Holiday, with a DKFM remaster of one of their classic tracks. Because we literally couldn’t hold off till the next Classics and Rarities show.
