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.

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 huge weekend, with a lot to get to, much of it new to your ears. We kick off the festivities with the brilliant new single from Mumrunner, newly signed to Soliti and finalizing their first full EP. We’ll heavily feature pre-release sounds from both Echodrone and Venera 4. We’re pushing the new LP from A Place to Bury Strangers, the cripplingly beautiful new single from Pallow (and the crown jewel on their new Confined EP), the new singles from FUTURE, Manon Meurt, Morels, Star Tropics, FLVKE, Crystal Shipsss (sooooo good), Similarity, and the long-awaited return of The Spectors, with a proper master of the first track we played from them way back before electricity was harnessed. It’s amazeballs, and so worth the wait. We’re also heavily pushing the self-titled EP from Salsa Cinderella, which is pretty magical in its own right, and the new EP from Lazy Calm, which has a classic 4AD feel in spots. Add in Himmel, lovethislife, Blue Herons, Stellarscope, Swing Hero and Melted Toys, we win the radio.

Won’t stop there. Conheartist, Youthmemory, Ancient Tapes, Makaras Pen, Pinkshinyultrablast, 93millionmilesfromthesun, Wildhoney, Catch the Breeze, Adelaida, Young Lovers and so much more. Can’t stop, won’t stop.

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.
