Nicht Plus Ultra from the album Villainess

Buy music from Misty Roses on emusic, iTunes, or your favorite music seller!

Also, I’m curious about how you guys like this type of interview show as opposed to the regular musiconly type shows. Does the sound of the city add a nice ambiance or do the honking horns make you want to chew ground glass. I would love some feedback! Thanks!
