Monday Mixteen: 10/16/17

blue cassette

Last Tuesday was World Mental Health Day, and in case you missed it, The Ghost had a bit to say on the matter.  My original intent was just to share a few songs that addressed the issue, but it soon became clear that the story was supposed to be much more than that.  As a […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 4/9/17

As you’re probably aware, Pete Freedman has clearly set the record straight on how awful the Deep Ellum Arts Festival is.  I felt it was my duty to help back up his opinion, so I designed a playlist that clearly shows the lack of talent held by those playing the festival.  I apologize for having […]

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 […]

The Ghost has a love-hate relationship with year-end lists. In reality, it falls mostly on the love side. There’s something exciting about reading a person’s (or publication’s) choice of best songs, albums, etc. Sometimes the lists align with one’s personal perspective, and other times, not so much. Either way, these lists serve as a time […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 8/7/16

mixtape (6)

This has been quite the weekend for me, between both Alexandria Rhea’s CD release show at Opening Bell Coffee and my showcase at Cafe Bohemia yesterday.  Thanks to all the performers who made this weekend so amazing.  And now, it’s time for the usually sixteen songs you get every Sunday.  Ready, set… Death Stairs, “Ghost […]

Spreading the Love This Music Monday

At its best, the local music community can be a truly nurturing and supportive environment.  I’ve met a number of fabulous people in this community that are genuinely concerned with helping others in the challenges faced being a musician.  As its worst, however, there can be a clique like quality that makes you feel like […]

Last night, I had nearly completed my list of songs that would make up today’s Spotify Sixteen.  As usual, I had planned a mix of current songs, discussion on upcoming events, and the like to discuss.  I went to bed, ready to finalize this playlist upon waking up in the morning. Then I woke up […]

A DEAF Playlist

deaf poster

This isn’t a deaf playlist as in a playlist for those who can’t hear.  After all, that’d be kind of pointless.  It’s also not deaf in the 80’s hip-hop sense of the word, although I do think this playlist is pretty def.  Word to your mother. No, I mean DEAF as in Deep Ellum Arts […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 1/3/2016

cassette (3)

Welcome to 2016’s first new playlist.  Forgive the brevity of this post, but I’m sticking just with songs sans commentary today.  Between real life commitments and posts that I want/need to write, I don’t have the time to wax poetic on each song. I will tell you that this week’s playlist consists strictly of female […]

The Best Local Songs of 2015: #50-41

missingsibling

It’s hard to believe how close this is to being over. This is the last official blog post before tonight’s big live reveal. As always, we’ll take a moment to review, because I’d hate for anyone to lose track. Intake, “Innocent Few” TALL, “Back and Forth” International Bitterness Unit, “Push B for Basement” The Wife […]
