As we flip the calendar page on another month, we’re packed with the new releases. From Paris, Pencey Sloe (pictured above) bring amazing tunes with post-rock flourishes. Find of the week. From Englishtown, New Jersey, the sparkling Lyons brings the surf jangles with style. The Cherry Wave dropped their new Close EP today, and Oakland’s heavy Solip just yesterday dropped the Without EP . Throw the calendar out, nobody knows what’s happening anymore. Fever Dream explodes all over your radio this weekend, as does Lubec, Tús Nua, DRAINING, Death Bells, Wild Ones, Argrph, Ysgol Sul, Fuzzy Feeling, Plastic Flowers, Vale, shiny psych inflections from Dirty Sidewalks, and brand new singles from Lapse, and Walking Misery. And we’re slightly late to the party on Hold/Transfer new music, Monotronaut’s Gestural EP (dropped last week), and Jekyll (not the hair metal band, but a different one). Plus we can finally shuffle all the gems from Same Century, The Morelings debut LP. D’oh! Can’t overlook today’s release from The Blue Herons, a collaboration between Andy Jossi of The Churchill Down and Krissy Vanderwoude of Whimsical… shimmering. Or today’s new release from Red Rosie, which also serves as a benefit. Red Collier is making music to make others jealous, we’re convinced of it. Wouldn’t be surprised if we forgot a band or five, as we pile in all of the new releases.

That only adds to last week’s haul, including Airiel, Miniatures, Kindling, Lazy Day, Leones, Pink Milk, Poolshop, DoZzz, Medicine (not technically new, but the reissue counts), Tangible Rays, Citrus Clouds, Corasandel, Biltmore Dive, Magic Mountain, Cascadia Fault Line, FireFly, Outward, Bright As Yellow, Close Encounter, Wild Meadows, Plums, Swanhoppers, and Makaras Pen. Overbooked for air.

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!

Thinking it might be a slow weekend for new music, we sort of went into cruise control. Wrong. Always wrong. We have the honor of previewing next week’s release of When The Sun Hits (the band, not the blog, or the classic Slowdive song) on Saint Marie Records. Immersed Within Your Eyes drops next week, and you can hear why SMR was rightly buzzed about these Nottingham lads. But, more. Former members of Solar Powered People banded together to lay down a heavy foundation and new tunes. Modesto’s MidNightSun is experimenting with heavy shoegaze feels, and is on the lookout for a vocalist to complement the epic haze. You’ll want to hear what this crew has been up to. But so much more… Black Needle Noise, Swimming Tapes (pictured, above), Seeing Hands, Palm Haze, No Kill, Lacing, Death Bells, Auburn Lull (new album landed today!), Silver Liz, 93millionmilesfromthesun, PolyAnna, Outward, Burn The Louvre, The Orchids, Volunteer Cheerleader, Ella Atlas, Alvvays, The Prids, Sun Colony, and choice cuts from the new TBTCI compilation celebrating the Psychedelic Furs. OH! And the new single from The Morelings. Having heard advance of the album, this seems like a next-level effort, and we’re looking forward to the official release.

Let’s not forget last weekend’s new tracks, including Infinity Girl’s swan song, L.A. Witch, The City Gates, Echoes, Indrive, Debrider, Cold Beat, Wild Arrows, Baker Island, Bruise Pristine, Changelings, SALES, No Honeymoon and WYWY. All picked at the peak of freshness.

PACKED. We can’t fit any more in. We’re going to tease you with prefinal mixes from the new Autodrone LP, This Sea is Killing Me. We welcome back our old favorites, as they prepare for a big return engagement at Mercury Lounge NYC on February 1st. The heady psych vibe is strong in this one. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’re also celebrating the triumphant return of Cheatahs and Moon King, and introducing you to the well-crafted sounds of Bloom. Plus The Virgance return with their new album Hiko Shrine. This is a perfect soundtrack to the break of dawn. Add in new classics from The Morelings, Mirror Days, Xolo, The Away Days, Virginia Wing, On The Wane, Space Daze, Liu Bei (featuring Rachel Goswell), Audiomoan, Creepoid, glider, Hot Glass, Noir for Rachel, p.zorito, The Valley Suns, Chastity Belt. We’ll also revisit some classics from Closedown and Ecstasy of St. Theresa.

But that’s not all! We’re still pushing the impressive new Reveries LP from Omega Vague, Talking Bush, Float Down the Liffey, Marble Arch, Eerie Glue, The Lovely Intangibles, めりん and Suichuu Zukan. So. Much. Good. Stuff.

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.
