GOBL Radio: May 2018 Highlights

GOBL Highlights May 2018

I know, your life has likely felt empty and meaningless without a new episode of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio this week on Deep Ellum Radio.  Not to fear, the radio show will return next week.  In the meantime, here’s a special playlist for you.  Since some of you may not be able to tune in Wednesdays 7-9 PM (or for the rebroadcast Thursdays 1-3 PM), it seems only right that I should let you sample some of what you’re missing.

Every month now, The Ghost will create a playlist, approximate 1½ hours long, spotlight some of the best tracks featured on my show this month.  Most of the tracks will be local, though I’ve included several songs featured in The Ghost’s Road Trip segment.  This playlist also leans heavier on new releases, though a few older tracks are thrown in for good measure.

Admittedly, it’s not the same as listening to my radio show.  On the down side, you’re missing out on all of my commentary.  Of course, it would be easy to argue that missing the speaking parts is the upside.  It’s all a matter of perspective.

  1. Big Red Ants, “Spoonful”
  2. Cut Throat Finches, “New Age”
  3. Rude King, “Coming Back to You”
  4. Autumn Barr, “Can U Feel Me”
  5. Upsetting, “Spring Break”
  6. [DARYL], “Petition”
  7. Ishi, “Galaxy Child”
  8. Cure for Paranoia, “No Refills”
  9. Bad James, “Amano Tomato”
  10. Giant Kitty, “Et2YT”
  11. David Joshua, “Refuge”
  12. The Holophonics, “Wanderlust”
  13. Nobody’s Girl, “What’ll I Do”
  14. Secrecies, “Hole in My Heart”
  15. Sad Cops, “Numb Hand”
  16. Mountain Natives, “Two Sides of the Same Coin”
  17. Go Fever, “Small Talk”
  18. Maya Piata, “Same Way”
  19. Tilly and the Flowers, “Detonate”
  20. Brave Little Howl, “Bar Room Brawl”
  21. Dead Beat Poetry, “Phantom Limb”

  • The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #5... Now that we’ve made it into the Top 50, I suppose The Ghost should add a little commentary for each track.  Fine, I can do that, especially since I only have to do that for ten songs.  Yes, it’s an unusually short playlist today.  That’s because I’ve saved the remaining Top 40 for Sunday afternoon.  [...]

  • Monday Mixteen: 12/3/18 It’s that time of year when the days get shorter and shorter.  While the daylight hours may be lessening, the holiday season makes it feel more eventful and often stressful.  Simply put, there’s more to do with shorter days.  The Ghost understands that time is at a premium.  Today’s Monday Mixteen is the shortest one [...]
