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

In a week where we’ve found DKFM is nominated for a second online radio award, it’s hard to keep our heads from spinning. But we’re here for you, and for new, and we’ve got plenty of both to keep everyone satisfied. From today’s release of Panda Riot’s Part Time Punks Session (brilliantly executed, that), to the new Vesper Records release of Dreams are Like Water, the debut EPs from Charcoal Skies and Team Tremolo, the sparkling new single from perennial favorites Indoor Voices, the reformed and re-polished Shallow, the epic new teaser single from Lapse, plus Dreams Wash Ashore (releasing September 8th) and The Age of Colored Lizards have new material they’d like you to consider. Plus we’ve finally got hands on the new Frankie Rose LP, with competing textures and colors, and the first single from the band When The Sun Hits, from the forthcoming Immersed Within Your Eyes EP on Saint Marie Records. Rounding out the roster, fresh tones from Pink Milk and YuKuBerī that simply must be heard. Finally, new music from Italy’s Sitting Girl With Arms Bent, full of charm and sparkle. Let’s do this!

That’s not to ignore last weekend’s new additions, including SPC ECO, Widowspeak, Plasticstatic, Turnover, Lilac, Ask For Joy, Seafang, Megumi Acorda, Death Bells, Headclouds and hamsas xii. We’ll somehow make this all work, with a minimum of failure.

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!

It’s a BIG weekend for the big sound. Besides the epic DreamGaze Festival LA on Saturday night, we’re rolling out the newest and freshest sound we can get hands on. We headline with a world premiere from Seattle’s Season of Strangers, who are wrapping up their new EP, coming soon to a Bandcamp near you. But the new doesn’t end there. New Tamaryn. New music from Pure Phase Ensemble 4, featuring Mark Gardener. New tunes from the upcoming Presents for Sally LP, Colours and Changes, due this month on Saint Marie Records. A key track from the impending Static Daydream LP that’ll rattle your teeth. Much from Shallow’s Feel Goods! LP, about to play a big role at DreamGaze LA. The just-released single from the ever-awesome Makaras Pen. A brand new single from Melbourne’s VHS Dream, in advance of the debut LP expected in November. A taste of the new Dream Suicides Soft Feelings LP. And the brand-shiny-new single from Angel Falls and Spell 336, sure to brighten any dark day. Just to top it off, we’re playing classic Ride live tracks to bookend your weekend. All shiny, all’a time.

SweetMeetOne of our Best of 2012 deserves a blog mention. Shallow’s “Sweet Meet” ranked number 34 on our listeners’ Top 50, and with good reason. One of those tracks we’d best describe as “beautifully broken”, it’s just a micro of the macro. There are several great can i order flagyl online tracks from their “Mistakes” EP that were added to rotation shortly after release, and remain there today. If you’re not familiar with Shallow, this is as good a place as any to start!

Visit Shallow at their Bandcamp site, and check them out on Facebook.
