Did it shock you that The Ghost is running late on this week’s Ten for Your Attention?  Would it shock you even more if I only had half the necessary tracks for the segment?  If it surprises you, then welcome to the blog, newcomer. For the rest well acquainted with my unique sense of timeline, […]

Atlantis Aquarius, “Full Moon” Yes, I’m still on my Atlantis Aquarius kick.  When southern rock is this soulful and groovy, why wouldn’t The Ghost still be all over that?  Frankly, I can’t think of a better way to start off this playlist. Rania Khoury, “Wanna Be Your Wife” Ms. Khoury has returned with a new […]

Lots of great new (and new-ish) music to share, and I don’t have loads of leisure time to wax poetic, so let’s get on with this. Jared  Caraway (Jared & The Jewelers, shown above) was kind enough to let me debut a new track, “Fabric of My Soul”. There are some really strong guitar riffs […]

Omar and the Howlers, “Hard Times in the Land of Plenty” Sad news in the Austin music world came this week when Barry “Frosty” Smith passed away. To say that his musical resume was impressive would be an understatement. He played with Soulhat, Alejandro Escovedo, Roky Erickson, and Omar & The Howlers, to name a […]

As you’re probably aware, Pete Freedman has clearly set the record straight on how awful the Deep Ellum Arts Festival is.  I felt it was my duty to help back up his opinion, so I designed a playlist that clearly shows the lack of talent held by those playing the festival.  I apologize for having […]

Day 97

Fact: April 7th is the 97th day of this year.  Also a fact: the 2nd Annual Old 97’s County Fair happens tomorrow at the Main Street Garden in Downtown Dallas.  This calls for The Ghost to post a special Old 97’s themed playlist, don’t you think? This playlist obviously features plenty of tracks by the […]

Back in the days when Dallas Observer used to have music editors, people would often suggest that I apply for the position.  They would say that my perspective on the music scene and my writing skills would be just what the DO needed.  And without fail, I would accept the compliment, but never tried for […]

Becky Middleton, “I’m Still Here” Some might argue that’s it’s cliche for The Ghost to begin this playlist with “I’m Still Here”, as if it’s a grand declaration that the blog has weathered the storm. Yes, this has been a lean year in terms of posts, to say the least. And Ms. Middleton did write […]

Wandering Through a Paisley Maze

Since The Ghost is returning to posting on the blog, how would you like to hear about a brand new psychedelic festival hitting Dallas?  You would?  Well, you’re in luck.  My pal Olan Mijana from Monoculture has created Paisley Maze, a festival bound to not only lure in all the psych rock fans in the […]

Catching Up With The Ghost

Alright, let’s get a few things out of the way.  2017 has not been a good year for The Ghost.  My readers probably figured that out already, considering the fact that this is the first post on the blog all year long.  It would be wonderful if I could declare that The Ghost would be […]
