Mirror Mirror Videos Galore: Tune Into YouTube

Artwork: Nina Pratchios

Few artists on our label get the online attention that Mirror Mirror receives. For this Spokane, Washington based psychedelic rock group, no other outlet has been so successful as their YouTube channel.

The band has truly reached online fandom, especially in Europe, where video artists continually post versions of their most popular tracks. True to the murky, underwater and downright dark overtones to the record, the videos can be repetitive, oblique and ultimately spacey.

We certainly expect new and great things from Mirror Mirror this year.


Mirror Mirror “In the Shadows” Hits the Digital Ether This Week – CD Pre-sale

Mirror Mirror rains down upon any acoustic space and expands it. The vocals are haunting and obscuring and they echo out over mysterious expanses. This much anticipated full length release will twist your brain around blind curves on poorly lit highways, take turns soothing your fears and indulging them. In plainer terms, it is psychedelic, oddly beautiful and melodic, sinister and distant.

In the Shadows has been a long anticipated release as Jason Campbell, principle songwriter and band leader, has recently relocated from Olympia, WA to Spokane, WA. Also appearing on the record is Ian Freddes who provides languishing drums. The two spent many sessions crafting each of these twelve tracks – a venerable outing.

Mirror Mirror’s appeal is wide ranging and we expect more from this band of reverb bathed rockers. Expect more shows in the Pacific Northwest in the next few months. Below video from the track “Monophonic Catatonic:”

Derek M. Johnson Plays on Olympia Winter Nights

Last night Derek M. Johnson performed on Olympia Winter Nights. As a lot of you may know Mr. Johnson is releasing his first LP with Aphonia Recordings later this Winter. Here is the video in two parts:

Here’s more from Olympia Winter Night’s website:

Olympia Washington has a very vibrant and unique musical culture. A large part of this culture is born from the long, dark winters that all Olympians must endure, the beautiful changing of seasons and the hopeless feelings of melancholy and inspiration. This unusually creative and mysterious season provides a canvas for Olympians to create, reflect and experience a rejuvenation with the coming of spring.

Olympia Winter Nights is a live concert series created and produced by the  2010/2011 media interns of  The Evergreen State College.    This production will be aired live in High Definition video and audio from the new CCAM television studios nestled within the beautiful, wooded campus of The Evergreen State College. Olympia Winter Nights will be an intimate listening and viewing experience for those attending the in-studio performances. Additionally, the concerts will be viewable by the entire world via a live stream on the internet!

Inspiration for this concert series comes from the long running PBS broadcast “Austin City Limits”, the 1990’s MTV broadcasts of “MTV unplugged” and the recent in-studio broadcasts of KEXP radio “Live on KEXP”. The artists to perform in this concert series will be drawn largely from the rich community of local talent.  In true Evergreen State College tradition, Olympia Winter Nights will be complemented with experimental lighting techniques and infused with imaginative, real time MAX/MSP/JITTER light projections.  A truly Olympian concert experience!
