Extrinia label launches the "Afterglow" podcast

BRISBANE, Australia - August 30, 2005 - In a call out to dark
alternative music fans and artists, independent record label,
Extrinia, today launched the "Afterglow" podcast at

Afterglow will bring the best in music inspired by darker themes -
romantic and otherwise - from new and emerging artists from around the
world, as well as newly independent but established stalwarts of the
genre. For fans who grew up listening to bands such as Joy Division,
The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Depeche Mode (and for those
who've discovered they've held a long fascination with black
eyeliner), Afterglow is set to re-awaken your faith in music.

Afterglow will explore new dominions that are being created in the
heart of the underground, covering electronica/EBM, industrial, dark
pop/rock, dark ambient, power noise, and more.

The show features "podsafe" music, where independent artists who own
their copyrights give their permission to use their original songs in
the show. "We've had a tremendous reaction from the artist community,
and we'd love to hear from more artists in the genre", explained
presenter and Extrinia founder, John P Shea. "Fans can also request
tracks using the request form on the site, and playlists include
artist contact details so they can purchase material directly".

The show is delivered as a free podcast in high quality MP3 format,
and can be listened to using a podcast receiver such as iTunes
