Well, we knew this day would come one day and it was one of the most agonizing decisions we had to make, but as we announced the other day, the Tsurus are moving to New York City in October!  And I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of any way better to celebrate drastic change (for the better or the worse, really) than with a mixtape and so, BLAMO! that’s what we got today.

These past few weeks as the possibility became more and more a reality, I got nostalgic. In the mixtape, it really shows. The result was basically a “best of” the past few years of life here in Columbus, mixed with thoughts of New York, and a few new songs that have caught my ear.  For fans of my mixtapes, you’ll find lots of familiar ground, but hopefully a few surprises. For the rest of ya, just push play and enjoy.

To all the past friends, crafters, & nudiecranes, we love you & will miss you dearly. To all the new friends we’ll meet in New York, we’ve got some bikes to ride & some nudiezines to make!!!

Okay, okay. I’m starting to get mushy, so let’s get on with it as…
