Video Wednesday (VW): 5/10/17

Wow, has it really been since August that I’ve done a Video Wednesday?  The Ghost is slacking big time.  I mean, how am I ever going to earn that Volkswagen endorsement with such lack of frequency?  There have been too many videos I’ve missed during that time period to fully catch up, and instead I […]

Ten for Your Attention: 5/8/17

You know the detail. Ten songs that deserve your attention. Nothing more, nothing less. The first track comes courtesy of former Monahans kead singer Greg Vanderpool.  He sent me an email to attend his recent Twilite Lounge show, which I was not able to attend.  I have, however, repeatedly listened to “To Violet”, the lead […]

Homegrown Fest Ticket Giveaway

So, have you been studying yesterday’s Sunday Spotify 16?  Perhaps you’ve already noticed something unusual regarding the ordering of the songs on the list.  Then again, maybe you haven’t. Either way, it’s time for you to come up with the mystery Tripping Daisy song in order to get a pair of Homegrown Fest tickets.  I […]

Before I begin this playlist, let me give a big thank you to Kinsley August and everyone involved in the show A Tale of Three Folks at Plano Arts Centre Theatre.  Thanks to the crew from both Silas Nello and Glass Canons, to the Arts Centre Theatre staff, and everyone who attended the show. Now, […]

During my years of following the local music scene, I have observed that the number of female fronted acts continues to grow.  Yet there is still this notion among some music lovers that female fronted acts are some sort of novelty.  This is a bothersome misnomer to The Ghost, as I could rattle off a […]

Silas Nello (Feat. Jenna Clark), “Tell Me What You Need” It would be rather predictable of The Ghost to begin this playlist with a Kinsley August song.  After all, yours truly is hosting A Tale of Three Folks at Plano ArtsCenter, with Kinsley headlining the event.  The Ghost, however, does not want to be obvious […]

Did it shock you that The Ghost is running late on this week’s Ten for Your Attention?  Would it shock you even more if I only had half the necessary tracks for the segment?  If it surprises you, then welcome to the blog, newcomer. For the rest well acquainted with my unique sense of timeline, […]

Atlantis Aquarius, “Full Moon” Yes, I’m still on my Atlantis Aquarius kick.  When southern rock is this soulful and groovy, why wouldn’t The Ghost still be all over that?  Frankly, I can’t think of a better way to start off this playlist. Rania Khoury, “Wanna Be Your Wife” Ms. Khoury has returned with a new […]

Lots of great new (and new-ish) music to share, and I don’t have loads of leisure time to wax poetic, so let’s get on with this. Jared  Caraway (Jared & The Jewelers, shown above) was kind enough to let me debut a new track, “Fabric of My Soul”. There are some really strong guitar riffs […]

Omar and the Howlers, “Hard Times in the Land of Plenty” Sad news in the Austin music world came this week when Barry “Frosty” Smith passed away. To say that his musical resume was impressive would be an understatement. He played with Soulhat, Alejandro Escovedo, Roky Erickson, and Omar & The Howlers, to name a […]
