Art By Ecliptic Sight

Wanted to have a separate place from Ecliptic Sight to display artwork, designs and photos. Art by Ecliptic Sight was the outcome with the focus on the art instead of the words. I will start posting photos that I have taken as well as from my family & friends. Designs that I have made for albums, logos and other random stuff. Basically it is a place to see all the art I have in higher resolution (800px or smaller) so sit back and watch as the pictures and descriptions inspire.

Super Barrio Bros. In Giving Mood

So this Christmas Dumbfoundead and I have decided that you all should enjoy this CD in your iPod or CD player for FREE, on us. ~8 Bit Bandit

Super Barrio Bros. consist of emcee Dumbfoundead and producer 8 Bit Bandit which put out the 8 bit music (think Super Mario Bros. background music but more involved or evolved) slammed together with Hip-Hop. I have always wanted this album since I heard samples on their myspace page. Now everyone including myself can enjoy this fine release. Great way to start off the holiday season with some festive Super Barrio Bros. sounds to help through the new year. Get the album here and more 8 Bit Bandit releases on his tumblr.

Song From The Head: The Sequel

Finally got around to rebuying Killarmy – Dirty Weaponry after my CD was scratched up beyond recognition from being played too much. This is the first song off the album and it still gave me that same electrified feeling as if I was hearing it for the first time again.

Artist: Killarmy
Song: Galactics
Album: Dirty Weaponry
