Finally, Italians Do It Better released After Dark 2, the follow-up to 2007's compilation on Friday (May 17). The 15-track collection features material from several acts associated with synth virtuoso Johnny Jewel — including Chromatics, Glass Candy, Desire, Symmetry, and Mirage, among others — and it's on iTunes right now. Jewel previously shared one of Chromatics' three contributions, the typically sleek "Cherry." Fans looking for a second taste can sample Mirage's nine-minute "Let's Kiss" below. Robo-vocals, nocturnal atmospherics, and mechanical drums abound. Giorgio Moroder would be proud.

After Dark II track list:

1. Glass Candy - "Warm in the Winter"
2. Desire - "Tears From Heaven"
3. Mirage - "Let's Kiss"
4. Appaloosa - "Fill the Blanks"
5. Chromatics - "Looking for Love"
6. Symmetry - "Heart of Darkness"
7. Chromatics - "Camera"
8. Twisted Wires - "Half Lives"
9. Glass Candy - "The Possessed"
10. Chromatics - "Cherry"
11. Glass Candy - "Beautiful Object"
12. Farah - "Into Eternity"
13. Appaloosa - "Intimate"
14. Mike Simonetti - "The Magician"
15. Glass Candy - "Redheads Feel More Pain"
