Two of the 17 best releases shown above

The Ghost has always avoided doing Best Albums of the Year lists.  There is something intimidating about making such lists and making certain that your words are appropriately eloquent for each of the releases.  But for the first time, The Ghost is taking on the task… sort of.  What follows is an unranked listing of […]

So, have you check out my list of the Best Albums of 2016 (so far)?  I’d encourage you to do so now if you haven’t already.  Today’s Sunday Spotify 16 is something of an extension to that list.  The Ghost has included alternate favorite choices from certain albums and EPs.  In addition, I’m mentioning several […]

About six years ago, I had the privilege of meeting a very talented young lady from the Waco area named Jaimee Harris.  She had been performing as a duo with her father (Better Off Dad), and had just released for first solo EP, Farewell to Texas.  Although only nineteen at the time, songs like “Quicksand” and […]
