Ten for Your Attention This Tuesday: 8/2/16

al mystiks

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 Smasher” from Bullet Machine, which will be on their upcoming release Jinkies… It’s Bullet Machine.

Likewise, it would also be in poor taste for me to talk about San Antonio native ILA Minori, and her gorgeous new track “Mend”.

And while Luna Royale gave a truly impressive performance at this year’s Deep Ellum Arts Festival, that does mean The Ghost should be promoting their brand new track off of Return of the Lucky Thirteen.

And at risk of sounding redundant, promoting the new demo from David Joshua (aka David Trust, Velvet Guard) and a live Emmeline track recorded at Single Car Sessions is nothing but The Ghost pandering for people to buy the compilation.

Now that the level of The Ghost’s unwillingness to shamelessly promote his art is no longer in question, let’s continue with new music from A.L. & The Mystiks (shown above).  The group just released their I Don’t Care When EP on Bandcamp.  You can also purchase it on cassette, which lead vocalist Aleah Dillard has suggested that the album is best listened to on tape.  I still don’t have the cassette, though the title track certainly sounds just fine on Bandcamp, as demonstrated below.

Poison Culture‘s album Perdido Para Siempre is scheduled to be released August 13th, and their Bandcamp page suggests that this may be the group’s final album.  That’d be a shame, as they bring a rather fresh approach to the punk genre.  Case in point: their new song “Dude”.

While the end of summer may be nearing, local producer and beatmaker Medasin has released a strong candidate for Song of the Summer with “Daydream”.  The track features JOBA, who I know nothing about except that his vocals are good.  That’s enough to know for now, though.

When I debuted the new track from True Widow a few weeks ago, I used my personal (non-Ghost) Facebook page to make a snarky comment to Dallas Observer and Central Track about how The Ghost beat them to the punch.  The Observer had no comment, though members of Central Track got a kick out of it.  They also proceeded to debut new tracks from Party Static and Lizzie Boredom, the latter featuring Stephanie Burns (Classic Cult, ex-Spookeasy).  Well played, Central Track.  Well played.
