Monday Mixteen: 1/22/18

South by Southwest may be over a month away, but it seems as if there’s already plenty of talk regarding the acts that made the cut.  Today’s Monday Mixteen gives you an opportunity to sample some of the Texas acts that will be performing.  In addition to some very familiar names, there are a few local acts that have not received much attention thus far (Tayla Parx, Little Mazarn).  And as usual, there’s plenty of Austin acts on the bill, so it only felt appropriate to feature some on today’s playlist.

I’d love to comment on each and every track, but I also want to make sure the Monday Mixteen happens… well, on a Monday.  I may add commentary later, but odds are you’re just going to have to enjoy the tracks without my thoughts.

  1. Tomkat, “Icarus”
  2. Soda Lilies, “Bedhead Redhead”
  3. Motorcade, “Deliver”
  4. Whitney Rose, “You Don’t Scare Me”
  5. Dezorah, “Las Flores”
  6. Nite, “Dreamer”
  7. NHD, “I Sent a Postcard”
  8. Pearl Earl, “Meet Your Maker”
  9. Erika Wennerstorm, “Extraordinary Love”
  10. Tayla Parx, “Bump That”
  11. Jonathan Tyler, “Riverbottom”
  12. Little Mazarn, “White Fang”
  13. Francine Thirteen, “Sister Mary”
  14. Single Lash, “False”
  15. Vandoliers, “The Native”
  16. Cure for Paranoia, “Wired”

  • Ten for Your Attention: 12/12/17 The end of a year is traditionally a time when the number of good new releases starts to dwindle down.  It seems to The Ghost that 2017 still has some good music left in it.
