DKFM 2022 Shoegaze & Dream Pop Albums of the Year

This albums chart is specific: rated first by number of album tracks graduating to long-term rotation, second by total spins. And there's a methodology to that madness: many crucial albums unleashed in the latter half of the year. Those LPs, solid as they may be, would suffer under a "total spins" criteria, because there was less of a year to spin them in. This specific chart helps level the playing […]

The Interview – The Stargazer Lilies

Some bands entertain, some thrill and excite but others completely transport you out of your life into strange fantastical worlds. This is my experience of The Stargazer Lilies. They remain a band I am in awe of and now a new album is nearly upon us. A new opportunity to explore the outer reaches of my imagination. Cosmic Tidal Wave is out this Frida,y so I took the opportunity to […]

New Tracks Weekend

New Tracks Weekend, October 7-9, 2022

Bandcamp Friday grinds some processes to a crawl, as every qualified artist (and a few less qualified) vie for attention and appreciation. Having sorted and rotation weighted over 120 tracks, we'll try to appreciate every artist we can this weekend. And there's a lot to celebrate. New albums from Alvvays, Bolinas, absinthe father, Beabadoobee, Lilac, Night School, Indoxables, MILLY, No Sun, and Twin Drugs (pictured above) are all headliners and […]

New Tracks Weekend, September 30-October 2, 2022

Enough headlines coming out of this week's new releases to fill a book. But we'll condense that book, give you the best Cliff Notes we can provide. Headliners this week include the new album from The Beremy Jets (album cover cropped above), Devastation is out today on Somewherecold Records, and it's a standout. Sure we've played the early lead single, but there's a treasure trove of songwriting and sonics here, […]

New Tracks Weekend, September 2-4, 2022

Bringing the freshness, as is the job description, and a Bandcamp Friday is no exception. Might slow us up just a little, but the job is to bring the brightest and best, and we're about it. This weekend's headliners include The Stargazer Lilies (new single!), the long-awaited return of AEROFALL (pictured above, photo credit to Nika Nechiporenko), a world radio premiere single from Elephants and Dogs (album drops 9 September […]

New Tracks Weekend

New Tracks Weekend, July 22-24, 2022

130 new release pitches, culled to 70 fresh tracks, all sorted and rotation weighted, ready to rock your weekend. The ones we're leaning into most heavily? Demos from UK band Deary have caught our fancy in these studios, each one a jewel. We're keen on new sounds from RUBUR, Precocious Neophyte, Moon in June, and the forthcoming EP release from Muted Color (pictured above)... one track out now, one will […]

New Tracks Weekend

New Tracks Weekend, March 5-7

Bandcamp Friday, and we're unsurprisingly overbooked. And headliners are plentiful. We lead with a sneak peek of the upcoming album from Wollongong, Australia's Miners. We've been spinning talented this squad since 2015, and they're ready for their close-up. We celebrate two Bandcamp Friday releases: Field Mouse's covers/reimaginings album Memory Card has more deep charm than you can shake a stick at, and why would you want to shake a stick […]

New Tracks Weekend, September 4-6

When you have this many headliners in one weekend, what are you supposed to do? First weekend in September unleashes fresh sounds from the best and brightest in our chosen genres, and we're here for it. The new LP from Animal Ghosts has to be the first among equals in this case, because it's a full album of epic hazy shoegaze. But that's just the tip of the awesome iceberg: […]

New Tracks Weekend

New Tracks Weekend, September 13-15

Up-to-the-minute breaking hits and new releases can sometimes delay full rollout of New Tracks Weekend. This is one of those weekends. We go long with the new LP from Ottawa's PINE, and it borrows nicely from the genre we love, while coloring heavily outside the lines. Chock full of hooks and compelling songwriting, it's a legitimate 2019 contender that many didn't see coming. We'll spool out the sounds liberally for […]
