Monday Mixteen 20190729

This Thursday will mark the twelve year anniversary of the blog, and with that anniversary comes twelve years of the second identity I took on: The Ghost. I certainly chose the name Ghost of Blind Lemon in part as a tribute to Dallas’ first major blues musician to take residence here, Blind Lemon Jefferson. But […]

Monday Mixteen: 10/16/17

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 […]

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 […]

Let the March Musical Madness Begin!

Back in 2007-2008 or so, Hunter Hawk began a cool feature on what I believe was the then Guide Live website (forgive my bad memory, as I’ve slept since then). He did a March Madness style battle of local bands. I loved the concept, and I regretted that he did not make it a yearly […]

This is going to be a busy week for me.  Tonight, I’ll be spending time at Liquid Lounge celebrating my dear friend Kim Taylor Owens’ birthday.  I’d encourage you to join me and hear tunes from Justin Pickard, Joe Hardy (Hello Lover, Hawk vs. Dove), Bull by the Horn, Kes O’ Hara, and more.

Simply stated, the Sunday Spotify Sixteen suggests a strong love of alliteration. Such a love is most strongly shown for the sound of S. Since I needed to save some time today because of the supreme importance of tonight’s special Ghosty Awards at The Underpass, I simply selected sixteen superb songs starting with S. Centro-matic, […]

The Ghosty Awards are quickly approaching.  Two weeks from today on November 22nd, the ceremony happens at The Underpass.  Not only that, but next Sunday marks the end of the voting period.  I figure now is a good time to examine some of the nominees in this week’s playlist.  After you give it a listen, […]

Since I’ve posted so little lately, there are so many things I need to get you caught up on.  In fact, I’ve even discovered a few new bits of information since compiling this playlist.  Enjoy this long overdue return of the playlist. Nervous Curtains, “How to Survive the End of Time” The band is back […]

If you haven’t noticed, psych rock has made a comeback.  I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen the genre stronger in my lifetime than it is now.  Bands like The Black Angels have helped breathe new life into the genre.  The Ghost has taken note, and that’s why there’s a full category in the Ghosty […]

I tried this about a month ago, with limited success.  This time, I’ve changed things up a bit.  No longer will I be asking you to select songs and write about them.  I’ll do the writing, and I’m even selecting the candidates for which songs will be on the playlist.  I sorted through eighty of […]
