Monday Mixteen: 11/6/17

Monday Mixteen 20171106

I hope everyone has enjoyed this weekend.  It marks one of my favorite weekends of the year.  Why is that?  Simple: one hour of extra sleep.  Yes, The Ghost does love his sleep.  And I recall some British guy once saying something about sleeping perchance to dream, or something to that effect.  So to celebrate this weekend of extra dreaming and sleeping, I offer to you a playlist of unusually dreamy songs.  There’s some shoegaze, psychedelia, electronica, and even hip-hop here.  The common theme, though, is that all these tracks have that hard to define but distinctly “dreamy” sound to them.

Speaking of dreams, many of these acts are nominated for Ghosty Awards.  An asterisk after an artist’s name indicates that act is up for an award.  If you haven’t voted yet, feel free to do so and you might help some of these acts fulfill a dream of a Ghosty Award.

  2. Ask for Joy, “Luna”
  3. Native Fox*, “Should’ve Gone With You”

  13. Menkena, “Red in the Morning”

It’s an acrostic playlist, and here’s a little refresher from your high school English class: an acrostic poem forms a word with the first letter of each verse in the poem.

  • Monday Mixteen: New Year’s Day,... 2017 was a crazy roller coaster ride of a year for The Ghost.  I went the first two and a half months of the year without a peep of the blog due to life stresses.  After that, posts were sporadic as best.  In fact, The Ghost came close to taking an “indefinite hiatus” from the [...]
