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 […]

Catching Up With The Ghost

Alright, let’s get a few things out of the way.  2017 has not been a good year for The Ghost.  My readers probably figured that out already, considering the fact that this is the first post on the blog all year long.  It would be wonderful if I could declare that The Ghost would be […]

The Ghost 101 Countdown: The Bottom H...

Today’s reveal on the countdown will show songs #60-51. Instead of just displaying those ten songs, however, it seemed like a good time to do a full on recap. So here you go, #101 all the way to #51. That completes the bottom half of the countdown. Alright, so technically it’s a little less than […]

Press Release: The 2nd Annual Ghosty ...

The following is The Ghost’s press release for The 2nd Annual Ghosty Awards.  In an unusually rare move, The Ghost is mentioning his personal identity on the site.  The Ghost is, however, omitting the more personal details from the press release like the phone number.  It is, however, given in the actual press release that […]

First of all, thank you for all the wonderful response to my open letter to Dallas.  It’s obvious that The Ghost is not the only one frustrated with the status of things in our music community.  My hope is that this begins a dialog with musicians, venue owners, booking agents, and music fans. In the […]

Matt Tedder, “Down the Road” Last night, Matt Tedder proved that he knows how to put on a show.  Of course, I can’t give all the credit to Tedder.  His entire band was spot on, with drummer Matt Mabe and harmonica player Paul Harrington standing out in particular.  But if you missed it, don’t feel […]

Speaking of duties, […]

Rei Clone, “Ready to Die” I may have liked Rei Clone the first time I heard them with their self-titled EP, but Wet gives me a whole new level of appreciation for the band.  Their Bandcamp page uses the labels punk and shoegaze, but I feel the phrase “organized chaos” is the best way to describe […]

Bad news: today’s Ten for Your Attention is only half its length.  Good news: there’s still plenty of musical goodness, beginning with a brand new track from Cameron Matthew Ray (shown above).  It’s from his upcoming album Acoustic: Volume 1, featuring re-recorded versions of songs found on CMR as well as new songs.  Here’s an example of […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: Part ...

I suppose I can no longer say it’s a Sunday Spotify Sixteen, being Monday and all.  Still, I wanted to share the remainder of these playlists with you.  I’ll admit, these playlists were ordered alphabetically by artist.  Normally, The Ghost prefers to order the songs in such a way that there’s an ebb and flow […]
