high fidelity cassette

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, […]

Sunday Sixteen Playlist: 10/18/15


No Spotify or Soundcloud this week.  This is just a playlist of songs I’ve uploaded to WordPress.  All the acts are nominees for this year’s Ghosty Awards, which will be held Sunday, November 22nd at The Underpass.  I swear, I really will be releasing details on performers soon.  In the meantime, give these sixteen songs […]

Thanks to those who took the time to vote for the songs on this week’s playlist.  There were some interesting surprises as to who you chose, though more importantly, you showed that there were no significant glitches in the Google Forms for voting.  What does that mean, you ask?  That means come Monday morning, voting […]

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 […]

Labor Day weekend is often viewed as the end of the summer season.  It seemed fitting to take this as a moment to reflect on some of my favorite releases of the Summer of 2015.  And since it’s Labor Day weekend, I thought I’d save myself a little labor by leaving off the commentary. Have […]

The Ghosty Awards: or If I Was King o...


Last week, I received an email from Jeff Gage of the Dallas Observer, letting me know it was time to send in nominations for this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards.  I’ve been given the privilege to be on the nominating committee since 2008, and making these decisions is never easy. One factor that makes this […]

I hope everyone’s been taking advantage of the calendar option on this website.  I work hard as possible to compile the most comprehensive list of quality shows in the metroplex.  I counted the list of shows for this weekend, and from today to Sunday, I have a total of 17 listed options.  That number may […]

Ghost of Blind Lemon Sampler


Right before Hands Across Deep Ellum, I decided to make a CD to give out as a way of promoting both the blog and many of the artists that I like.  I wanted to thank everyone who contributed to this CD, of which I only had the time to make ten.  All ten copies have […]

In my personal Facebook feed today, I got a sponsored post featuring the video of “Lie in Your Bed” by Home by Hovercraft.  This may mean nothing.  Maybe the band just got bored and wanted to give money to Facebook.  Maybe they’re trying to raise awareness of the struggles encountered in the robot community.  Or […]

Ticket Giveaway: Local Brews Local Gr...


My pal Nicholas Altobelli was kind enough to hook me up with a pair of tickets to give away for Saturday’s Local Brews Local Grooves show at House of Blues.  In case you haven’t heard, twenty different local breweries will be on hand whose beers you can taste.  On the groove end of things, Nicholas […]
