A smooth sentimental mix to end 2009: This Moment - Erik|Michael

It's been both the best of years and the worst of years for myself. I have been through moments like reoccurring lengths of incarceration, trouble with the law and the public in general. from losing people I love and meeting other I loath to the starting of a new job with great opportunities and the wonderful welcoming of my first child, a daughter. For me, change was the only thing that was constant in 2009 and so I can't help but wonder with both excitement and worry what 2010 has in store. With that said, here are a few tracks that were there with me through some of the pivotal moments of this year past. Be careful tonight, people. I hope you all enjoy a safe New Years tonight.

The Flying Skulls: Live at The Arcata Theater

 This mix is my first exposure to this west coast trio The Flying Skulls , and it is absolutely outstanding! I am currently scouring the net for more as we speak. I'm not even sure exactly what this genre/style of music is but I love it. Be sure to check their link and find out more info on the group, I cannot at the moment, as myspace is banned at my office coz some chump was caught spending their entire day playing on the site. If you have anymore info on this group, or want to share other artist like it be sure to comment or email me cause I'm very interested! Daps to Chrome Kids for my Flying Skulls cherry!
