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.
