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 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!
