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

Fresh weekend, fresh mix, fresh tune age. New music from everywhere. New double-single from Crystal Canyon (pictured) is worth cheering. New singles from Lebend, Expelled From Space, a charming Moscow Olympics remix (tip of the cap, hale and farewell to Beko Disques, who’ve announced they’re folding their tent after many years of bedroom pop excellence). Plus we’re deep into the new releases from Tape Deck Mountain, Yuragi, Spirettes, Teenage Wrist, Movie Brain, Eyes Behind the Veil, King Woman, Blaire, Moon Loves Honey, Dirty Sidewalks, notme, Anajunno, Terry vs. Tori, Tide Bends, daysee, ‘Parks, Squares and Alleys’, and much more. Finally, we’re pushing the proper debut of Norway’s Sweam. What is this? Self-described as, “hard hitting but soft Oslo-gaze,” it’s a sound and a joy to behold. And you heard it here first.

And that’s in addition to last weekend’s fresh tracks, including Linda Guilala, Jaguwar, Ride, Relay Tapes, Honeyhead, Ceremony, Jay Som, Medejin, Plant Cell, Venus in Fuzz, Vyva Melinkolya, and Yeah, Cool. Packed in, pressed down and overflowing.

And if that’s somehow not enough, you can always go back and listen to our Top Shoegaze and Dream Pop Tracks of 2017. The show itself is four plus hours of sonic delights, thanks to listener votes throughout the year via the DKFM app. It finished at #1 on Mixcloud’s Indie Pop chart, and #2 on their Indie Rock chart. If you missed it, well, it’s the best of what we do.

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 playlist 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!

Didn’t get the gear you wanted at Christmas? We’ve got it!

So much new, right now. We’re going long with the full LP from Newmoon (possibly our most anticipated release of the year), and that’d be enough to implode your weekend. But noooooo. The return of Vivienne Eastwood practically demands your attention, plus new music from station faves Angel Falls, Citrus Clouds, Starcleaner, Ghost Lake, Winter, Tape Deck Mountain, Teen Brains, Kimono Lights, and Golden Gardens, as well as new-to-us magic from The Beremy Jets, Dama Scout, Hood, Rainboard. Plus, a few premiere cuts from the forthcoming Echolust LP, which will damn sure get your motor humming. Finally, the return of C86 stalwarts The Wolfhounds, with three choice cuts that crossover into all your favorite genres. We’re packed solid, I’m telling you!

Of course, we’re still deep Kestrels, as well as Genders, Scarlina, Tearjerker, Arbes, Blossom, Slowly, Flyying Colours, True Widow, Pabst, Angelic Milk, Tosk, Alcest and The Infinite Seas.

How many headliners can you pack into one weekend? We shall see. We’ve got today’s new releases from Crescendo, Wild Nothing, and The Telewire, a broadcast premiere from Walking Misery, new music from Japan’s Collapse, Estonia’s She Bit Her Lip (giving Pinkshinyultrablast a run for their money!), Austin’s Ask For Joy, Fir Cone Children, Tape Deck Mountain, We Are Temporary, Good Personalities, Jupitamoon, Svankropp, and topped with world broadcast premieres from original ‘gaze icons The Veldt (Apollo Heights), whose new EP The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation drops March 18th, in advance of a major (and overdue) national tour. We’d call this an abundance of sonic riches.

That’s not to forget last week’s fresh adds, including Rev Rev Rev, Winkie, Memoryhouse, Mint Julep, Whales, Ashley Shadow, Film School, Alone, Venusians, Movie Brain, My Dark House, Kigo, The Raudive, Did You Die, Serfs, and The Sun Days. So much good stuff!

Labor Day weekend in the States, and time to unwind WHEREVER you live around the globe. Except perhaps Syria*. We will provide you with the maximum new sounds allowed by law, and keep packing them in as the weekend progresses. We’ll share newest tracks from Last Leaf Down, Tape Deck Mountain, Dead Horse One, Lycia, The Auras, Samira Winter, Un Planeta, plus the return of White Lodge. Throw in some Rumskib, Keith Canisius, Hold Kiss Kill, Chimes, Carta, Beach Volleyball, Glasvegas, Lunatics On Pogosticks, Rancho Relaxo, Chimes, The Curtain Society, The Neon Violets. Sprinkle with some classic Cocteau Twins tracks to celebrate Liz Fraser’s 50th birthday, and voila! You’ve got a New Tracks Weekend souffle! We’ve also added some mind-bending new psych as well, to celebrate the impending return of Jordannah Elizabeth and TPR Psych Nights. We’ll also keep you updated on the start of World War III as it unfolds, with breaking news updates. Because that’s not what we do.

For some of these folks, it’s their last shot at permanent rotation. YOU can make a difference! Live365 listeners, it’s YOUR thumbs-up/thumbs-down votes that mean the difference between permanent rotation, and languishing in obscurity.
