Back to the top

When there’s so much new music to promote that we can’t even keep our dates straight? That’s a helluva month. And we’re topping last week already (but we’ll keep dates accurate this time). Airiel and Miniatures headline. Both albums dropping soon, surely you’ve preordered by now? But we’ve also been granted a few choice cuts from The Morelings debut LP, dropping next week. If we haven’t gotten you excited about Same Century yet, you may be listening to the wrong station. Plus, new music from 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, Swanhoppers, and the ever-sparkling Makaras Pen, in advance of their forthcoming EP. Plus, we’ll drag out a few classic chestnuts from Plums, who bring the jangle. Done and done!

That’s not to overlook last weekend’s new treasures, including MidNightSun, When The Sun Hits, Black Needle Noise, Swimming Tapes, Seeing Hands, Palm Haze, No Kill, Lacing, Death Bells, Auburn Lull, Silver Liz, 93millionmilesfromthesun, PolyAnna, Outward, Burn The Louvre, The Orchids, Volunteer Cheerleader, Ella Atlas, Alvvays, The Prids, Sun Colony and more! More music than weekend, naturally.

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’.

March Madness indeed. We’ve spent many hours separating the wheat from the chaff, and we’re finally ready to bring you the awesome. This weekend, we’re “long” the new album Abyss from Pastel Ghost, and happy to introduce the proggy-gazey-trippadelic sounds of Ireland’s Tuath. We tease with the newest sounds from Noir for Rachel, Tennis System and Foliage, and play at the edges of My Invisible Friend, Mannequins, Wild Meadows, Witness 9, Talking Bush, Italy’s Good Morning Finch, Blackpool Astronomy and Honeymoon. Plus we’ll be featuring the excellent Ride covers from TBTCI’s Ride tribute, including Jaguwar, Crisis Arm, Ask For Joy, Ceremony, Car Crash Sisters, Bloodhounds on My Trail, In Her Eye, and Last Leaf Down.

Not content to stop, we’re pushing the new albums from Winter, Spectres, Native Lights, Light FM, The Union Trade, and Human Colonies. Plus Malka, Monster Treasure, Winnebago, Depth & Current, Venera 4 and loads more. Our March Madness bracket includes much new music, and zero basketball.
