Soooo much new music was released this past week…


(I’m not going to play all of it. I only get three hours)

(Also does anyone else thing that the new Night Terrors of 1927 sounds like a throwback to like early 2000s vibe? And like “Shine” sounds like crossover music, u can’t tell if it’s religious or not like??? Listen this morning and decide for urself bc imma play it!)

Hi Elizabeth!

I’m 1/2 of NYC duo Wonderful Humans. We just released a new song, “Worth Your While” and would love for you to give it a listen. I think it fits with the whole Neon Daydreaming vibe. :)

Hope you enjoy it! 



Loving this lots lots! Totally going to play it on tonight/tomorrow’s show! Probably around 5:30a PST!


as always, stream @, send requests here, follow “@kucifm” on twitter + my personal, “@ritzyew” bc I live-tweet what I play from both!

deathrayray asked:

Ugh DJ Liz, I love your show but it gives me too many feels sometimes. Like right now. You and my ex have really similar taste in music and you just played a few songs that especially reminded me of him (young wonder, porcelain raft) and then you just stabbed me in the heart with Memoryhouse, "Lately" is one of the songs he out on the first playlist he made me. Heart officially torn in half. Hahaha. Love your show always though, makes my drive to work less miserable. (Except today ;)) haha

Neon Daydreaming Answer:

oh hon I’m so sorry about the pain I inadvertently caused haha! Thank you for listening nonetheless! And hopefully you enjoy the next set—local bands provide some change of pace, I hope!

Drive safe to work && happy Friday!

Hi Daydreamers! 

For this week, I was absent, camping up in Mammoth and becoming one with the Jeffery Pines. It was a trip. There were bears.

Anyway DJ Dartanian and my lovely roommate put together this playlist and did amazingly as subs, even while I was trying to micromanage from 8 hours away in a forest
