Still packing in the weekend, but with bright, fresh newness. We’re anxious to push new Iris at you, as well as Trementina’s new EP, both of which hit like a bolt from the blue. We’ve got new music from Blacanova, Eerie Summer, Shocking Pinks, Sunshine & The Rain, Dråpe, Lights that Change, Future Shapes, In a Lonely Place, The Yellow Traffic Light, Chain of Flowers and much more!

We’d be failing if we didn’t mention the most recent newness on tap from last weekend, including SHEER, A Shoreline Dream, Wildhoney, Beach House, Youth Pool, The Julia Sound, whatfunlifewas, Ummagma, Swiimers, Seasurfer, Catholic Easter Colors, DIIV, The Poetry Book, Tender Surgeon, dot Vom, Winter, Oak Coma and Waitress.

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. 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. 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, and live-tweeting every track on our sub-Twitter DKFMTracks account. Now you’ll know what you heard, or catch up on what you missed.

Central California: don’t miss GazeFest 2K15, presented by DKFM and The Shoegaze Collective, next Tuesday at Fulton 55!

 

Surely the two biggest releases of the week come from Tokyo and Toronto: Tokyo’s Cattle, with Somehow Hear Songs EP, explode into your consciousness with bright and fuzzy sounds. Out now on Jigsaw Records, Seattle, this is sure to be a rotation staple, and ranks among the best of 2015. Toronto’s Lust dropped the long-awaited LP today, and it gets all the feels right. We interviewed Lust, posted just today, to coincide with the album release. There’s a metric ton of shoegaze talent in Toronto, and they’re bringing the tuneful noise. Another quality release sure to end up on our best-of-year lists. Tunes and tones, mastered. This weekend, we’re all about both bands. You will be too.

But hey, that can’t be all, right? Right. We go deep with White Poppy, Ghost Cat, Trementina, Plush and Wipe. New sounds from The Yellow Traffic Light and Snow in Mexico, plus recent sounds from Fake Flowers. We’re still pushing Reverse (on tour now!), Blood Candy, Thud, Bleak Boys, Wolf Alice, GLISS, Daydream Cathedral, and a whole lot more. It’s a holiday weekend Stateside, so we’ll bring our own fireworks.

It’s a damn fine week for new music.

The new single from Italy’s The Yellow Traffic Light dropped today on WWNBB Collective. Sharing some similarities with the jangly DIIV sound, and bringing an energy and tunefulness all their own, “Cole Drives Too Fast” delivers a mildly controlled chaos, much like an out-of-control driver on a highway late at night (even the drums seem near to flying away at times!). The video itself premiered last week on rockit.it, the single is now available worldwide through your favorite retailer. It’s the first salvo from their new EP, scheduled for release on We Were Never Being Boring in September. Another fine signing by a well-respected label.

The Yellow Traffic Light charted at #32 in our year-end Songs of 2014 list with the epic “Care”, so we can only hope they continue to bring the jangle and shimmer before the year is out!

 

“Cole Drives Too Fast” is available now via Amazon, iTunes, and even eMusic. Follow the progress of The Yellow Traffic Light on Facebook.
