Back to the top

So music. Much clever. Such new. New Tracks Weekend this weekend celebrates the release of Dead Moon from LA’s Blood Candy, out now on Buddyhead Records. You may remember them from the demos we wheedled out of them as they were causing a buzz in the LA scene. Well, they all done growed up! Lightly grimy psych covered in sweet vocal sugar, and we’re off. Grab your own damn copy at Bandcamp. But we’ll be pushing this heavily over the next month, as we do, because theirs is a party you’ll want to attend. But there’s a lot more to celebrate this weekend, including the new track from Chicago’s venerable Savage Sister, teasing their new album due out …someday via BLVD Records. The new No Joy album bends your mind and earlobes, frustrating your efforts to grasp reality and musicality. MORE from the new Star Horse, also previewed here this week, plus Angel Falls, The Poetry Book, Jambox, Seafrost, Cantalouper, Surreal Realm, Blacanova, FPRF, Eternally Dizzy, plus some recent classics from Oyama, and classic classics from Sun Dial. And that’s just the stuff we’re shoveling in this weekend.

We’re celebrating the brilliant new album out this weekend from Aire Espacial, Figuras Cósmicas (we’ll be out in support of their album release party on Saturday). Plus we’re still pushing DEAFCULT, Communions, Eternal Summers, Crimsonettes, Los Hotpants, Cotillon, Someday I Will Miss You, Heavïness and tons more. As we’re still reviewing all the new material we’ve received over the last week, don’t be shocked that we stuff in more as we get closer to deadline. As we do. (Note: just added Jade TV and Sustains)

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. Live365 listeners: it’s your votes that count! Your thumbs-up / thumbs down ratings determine what is kept in permanent rotation. Listen via the Live365 station page at DKFM, on iTunes Internet Radio under “Eclectic”, and on TuneIn Radio for iPhone/Android/Windows. Latin America relay: try Radio Terra. And still commercial-free everywhere! You can even keep up with the new tracks and artists you may have missed: we’re live-scrobbling via our last.fm profile. Now you’ll know what you heard, or catch up on what you missed.

We want your voice on our air. Details coming next week!

All of four hours old, the amazingly tuneful Star Horse released the video for their new single, “Slower Now”. While we’re traditionally not “about” videos, it’s always amazing to see a credible independent band grab the medium by the horns and shake it. And last week’s release of the towering single cried out for some panoramic vistas and gritty accents. Classic 80’s/90’s basslines uplift slightly off-kilter chords, leading to Maja Thunberg’s sweet harmonies in the chorus. Certainly “Slower Now” will be in consideration for top 50 end-of-year lists when it’s all said and done.

For Sweden’s Star Horse, it’s an amazing refinement of their sound, and welcomes newcomers to explore the brilliant world they inhabit. It’s hard not to cheer from the sidelines when a really talented band comes into their own. Star Horse is NOW.

Check out Star Horse releases on Bandcamp, and follow them on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

 

Because the new music won’t play itself. It’s a great weekend for fresh tracks from new bands, and up-and-comers. There’s a lot of sparkly brilliance here. Star Horse, Blush Response, Crisis Arm (Rend is finally out, got yours yet?), Magic Love (there’s a lot of magic in this Japanese release), Sensei, Evil Eyes, Princess, Duelectrum, Self Defense, The Hours, She, in the haze, Miss Mobile Home just dropped, Unity Floors, Be, Aysula, Hariguem Zaboy, Withershins and much more. The weekend’s looking bright. Or dark, depending on your point of view.
