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 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!
