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.

  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”

  15. Vandoliers, “The Native”

  • Monday Mixteen: 4/29/19 I had some ideas of what to cook up for today’s Monday Mixteen, but I just couldn’t figure out the right musical ingredients for the playlist.  On top of that, The Ghost just didn’t feel like serving up the dish of a carefully curated themed playlist.  So I did what people do when they’re lazy [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 4/15/19 Most of my Monday Mixteen playlists have some sort of theme.  The sixteen tracks selected have a loose musical connection to them.  All of the songs are within what I would refer to as “rootsy” music.  What exactly does that mean?  To me, it means anywhere along the musical spectrum that contains Americana, country, blues, [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 1/21/19 To celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday today, I felt it should be something that was incorporated in today’s Monday Mixteen.  The Ghost’s first instinct was to do another acrostic playlist, with the song titles spelling out his name (minus the Jr. part).  While I kept with that theme, I felt it was not [...]
