The 17 Best Releases of 2017

BeFunky Release2017
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 […]

Monday Mixteen: 12/3/17

Most of my Monday Mixteen posts as of late have held some sort of theme.  I’ll return to that at some point.  For now, The Ghost needed to just speak freely about his thoughts and some tunes that have been in my head and heart. Mother Tongues, “Jam of the Tongues” This band comes highly, […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 4/30/17


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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 3/6/16


Kaela Sinclair, “Original Sin” From my first listen to Ms. Sinclair, I knew that she had the talent to go far in the world of music.  This Friday, she announced that she’d be joining M83 as their keyboard player.  I congratulate Kaela on this significant accomplishment, and hope this opens even more doors for her […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 1/17/2016


The Suffers, “Peanuts” When Billboard debuts your new song, your band may really be going somewhere.  I have a feeling that 2016 is going to be huge for The Suffers.  Their funky, old-school soul sounds are truly infectious, plus this just might be the strongest vocal I’ve heard yet from Kam Franklin, and that’s saying […]

Kaela Sinclair: Beyond the Viral Vide...


By now, you’ve probably seen the video of Kaela Sinclair‘s covering SOHN’s “Artifice”.  As of the moment I’m composing this, the clip has had over 80,000 views.  Buzzfeed has even taken notice of the video, stating that Kaela is “what raw talent looks like without autotune and expensive recording gear.  Yes, this video is nothing […]

Take Two: Handing You the Keys to the...

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 […]

Top 10 Things to Know This Tuesday: 7...

top 10

A little fact about me: I love lists.  More to the point, I love a good countdown.  Maybe it’s all those weekends of listening to Casey Kasem count down the Top 40 hits in the nation, week after week.  Whatever it is, I love making numbered lists.  Combine that with the fact that it’s hard […]
