“Something More” for You This Music Monday

emmeline2015

The time to Rise is coming soon.  After years in the local music scene, Emmeline is working on her first full length album, to be titled Rise.  Em (as her friends call her) has granted me the privilege of debuting “Something New” on the blog.  I suppose it’s likely the lead single from the upcoming album.
At first listen, it seems like classic Emmeline.  In my ways, that’s not an unfair statement.  The sweetness and beauty in her vocals is something her fans have come to expect.  Yet there’s something new and fresh in this song.  First off, the production on this song is above and beyond anything on any of her EPs.  The sound is fuller and richer than before.  Also, it feels like Emmeline has struck the perfect balance between her appreciation for popular music without succumbing to any of the cliched traps of the genre.  Her lyrics remain as sharp and honest as ever.

The Ghost looks forward to sharing more songs and news about Emmeline in the coming months.  In the meantime, I encourage you to listen to “Something More”.  The song is a bright ray of sunshine on this gloomy thing called Monday.  And I’m not talking about the forced, fake happy kind of sunshine.  The song radiates from a place of honesty, which makes this song a true ray of light.  Listen and I’m sure you’ll agree.

Emmeline, “Something More”

Fact: The Ghost is far better at curating lineups than creating posters for shows.  If in doubt, look at the poster above.  And honestly, that’s one of my BETTER posters.  Fortunately, today’s GOBL show at Cafe Bohemia is a musical lineup, not an art exhibit.

So, you may have heard yesterday about a very special Bandcamp compilation released courtesy of yours truly.  It would be bad form of me to use this week’s Ten for Your Attention to publicize Return of the Lucky Thirteen.  I mean, how tacky would it be to use this opoprtunity to share the new track “Planet [...]
  • This Is How I’m Celebrating Tur... Nine years ago, I was thinking of how the local music scene was in such a low place.  Trees, Gypsy Tea Room, and Club Clearview had shut down, and Deep Ellum was a ghost town.  It was definitely a far cry from the early 2000’s, where venues (and the streets) were packed.  It made me [...]
