Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 2/28/2016

Greetings once again, GOBL readers.  I apologize for the lack of posts lately.  An illness has kept me down for a little bit, but I’m happy to say that I’m recovering, and want to thank all the well wishers, friends, and the like.  It’s nice to be back to my old local music loving self, so I figured a new Sunday playlist is long overdue.

Now that we’re almost finished with the second month of 2016, I selected only songs released this year for this week’s playlist.  I must say that I’m surprised by how relatively few selections I had to choose from.  Some releases haven’t been put on Spotify yet, so I don’t know if there’s a trend towards not putting music on Spotify.  Or maybe there’s some really good Texas music on Spotify that’s been released this year without my knowledge.  Please, keep The Ghost in the loop by choosing to “Talk to the Ghost”.  I’ll admit I’m a bit behind on responding to emails, but intend to start catching up in the upcoming weeks.

In the meantime, enjoy these sixteen solid songs from 2016!

  1. Missing Sibling, “Mary’s Rashers”
  2. Pentacon Six, “Capture You”
  3. Emily Wells, “You Dream of China”

  12. Pleasant Grove, “The Pessimist Clique”

I got to celebrate my birthday weekend with family and friends, and of course, I got to see some great live music courtesy of Pleasant Grove. Me thinks The Ghost has been partied out, however, so there will be no commentary from me today. Instead, I [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/22/19 Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted [...]
  • What I’ve Missed in May Alright, so May hasn’t been my month.  In fact, this is the first blog post of May, and the entire month happened with zero episodes of GOBL Radio.  Here’s hoping that the summer months are kinder to Ghosts.  In fact, you can count on more announcements, articles, etc. from GOBL in the coming days and [...]
  • The Ghostified Gathering For a week or so, Festify was all the rage on social media. It was an app that created fictitious festival lineups based on one’s Spotify listening habits. One could create a lineup based on the most listened to artists over the course of a month, six months, or one’s entire time on Spotify. The [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 1/14/19 You may notice that the songs in the below playlist are in the alternating order of the letters S & M. Yes, The Ghost realizes that this theme may be rather controversial. I could have easily shied away from it, but it seems pointless to try to hide one’s deepest desires. Several readers will find [...]
