Plain Brown Wrappers #6- Ethereal Dissonance

I have received a few comments recently from folks wondering when the next Plain Brown Wrappers is going to be posted. Well... good things usually come to those who wait, and I'm sure that most of you will agree that today's post is of the highest caliber. Let me first get you up to speed on a couple of the projects that I have been working on while battling the daily distractions of life.

Then, next Halloween you can pull this one out and give it a proper spin during Halloween. This one is an eclectic mix of soul, surf, experimental, hip-hop and electronic music that is sure to keep your interest. I would love to hear what any of you think about the podcast! Until next time...
