A few more hours' worth of tracks in rotation now. This week we're featuring tons of songs from The Synthetic Dream Foundation, Ashbury Heights, Blutengel, and.. Blank and Jones. The trance duo. No, I haven't lost my mind. Trust me on this one.

There's also a selection from Imatem, which is the side project of Peter Spilles of Project Pitchfork, but I'm convinced the vocals on "Haven" are Ronan Harris. See what you think.

We're also featuring Miss FD's debut track, Together Forever. More electropop than her previous projects, and this is excellent stuff. Enjoy!

Gather ye round, all listeners, gather round. Today is a special day indeed.

Up first, a couple of tracks from Imperative Reaction, whose concert I just caught in Atlanta; they put on a fantastic show as usual. Check that link, ladies and gentlemen, and find a show near you.

We're rolling out more from VNV Nation's latest release Of Faith, Power, and Glory. My contacts in Germany say the Munich show was out of sight, including Ronan wearing proper lederhosen, but the tour rolls on and if you don't catch it while you can, I promise you'll regret it.

This week, mirrorshades radio is also proud to include Frightdoll's latest single, Cackling Round the Cauldron, a special song for All Hallows' Eve. It's available via amazon and iTunes so catch it online and don't let it get away.

Though the track rotation updates frequently, I have been completely negligent in my update posts to tell you all what's new and fresh. Well, if you don't like it, you can ask for your money back.

Winging its way to the station in the sky right now are a few more hours' worth of updates. This one features mostly singles ranging from the likes of Haujobb to Evil's Toy, along with a few select tracks from VNV Nation's latest release Of Faith, Power, and Glory, and let me opine that this is some truly magnificent work. I caught their concert here in Atlanta and had a glorious time; you Europeans should see it while you can because the next leg of the North American tour is starting again soon.

This week we're also featuring a track from Psyche Corporation called "Universe", and I understand it is their first foray into the darkwave genre. It's a beautiful blend of treated feminine vocals over smooth gothic beats and well worth listening to; let us hope they keep moving towards the dark side.

And as always, if you're an artist in the general darkwave or gothic scene and would like your music featured on mirrorshades radio, please feel free to contact me.

About five more hours' worth of body-moving beats are in this week's update. Featuring a few tracks from Hocico, Tristesse De La Lune, Culture Kultur, and many others. Keep dancing so it all keeps spinning.

A few more hours' worth of delicious beats are now in rotation. Heavily featured are remixes, but we've also got singles from Bodycall and Solitary Experiments in the mix, and a few tracks from the venerable Die Krupps.

This week we're also presenting some amazing tracks from Frightdoll's new album Assimilation Illusion. If you've heard her debut Reference Version then this is something to check out; if you haven't, then what the hell are you waiting for?

As always, listen loud, listen often, spread the world. Be beautiful.

Why this music?

This is music I enjoy. This is music that I find shapes moods. This music is what motivates me, what I listen to at work, in my car, what I dance to at the club. These genres tend to be moody, dark, but dancey and catchy, with thoughtful lyrics that explore aspects of the psyche sadly missing from many other forms of music.

I hope you find it enhances the mood of mirrorshades.org, or wherever you happen to listen to it.

So it was written, and came to pass, and today, you can listen at 96kpbs, ad-free, to hours and hours of non-repeating awesomeness. And please, keep tuning in -- more songs are added to the rotation on a semi-regular basis, with new releases, features, spotlights, and the occasional live broadcast right here from the mirrorshades.org studio.

Listen at work. Listen at home. Listen often. Tell your friends. But most of all, enjoy.

Welcome to mirrorshades radio.
