Monday Mixteen 10/30/17: Part II

Monday Mixteen 20171030part2

The Ghost has always thought it to be rather cliched to do songs about ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and the like for Halloween.  Instead of using the obvious imagery, I like to use a different comparison for this holiday.  Halloween is a time for dressing up as a different creature.  The closest musical kin to dressing […]

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 […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 8/14/16

Rei Clone, “Ready to Die” I may have liked Rei Clone the first time I heard them with their self-titled EP, but Wet gives me a whole new level of appreciation for the band.  Their Bandcamp page uses the labels punk and shoegaze, but I feel the phrase “organized chaos” is the best way to describe […]

20 Best Albums of 2016: The Half-Way ...

OK, so technically today is slightly past the halfway still.  Close enough, right?  I don’t have the time or energy to wax as poetically as these albums deserve.  Still, it’s worth noting my favorite albums and EPs thus year.  For a change, I’m allowing both Texas and “Sorta Texas” albums in the list.  One thing […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 6/26/16

First off, let me apologize for the lack of playlist last Sunday, along with forgetting to share the playlist widget the previous week (that has been corrected).  The Ghost is back on track now, with another fabulous sixteen songs for you.  You ready?  Good… Charley Crockett, “In the Night” Because beginning a playlist with Mr. […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 5/29/16

So, remember when I had that awesome plan where I’d count down the Top 500 Texas songs of the 21st Century over the Memorial Day weekend?  Yeah, that’s not happening.  Maybe it’ll happen for Labor Day, but I didn’t do all the necessary research and all the labor needed for a good Top 500 countdown. […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: Part ...

sundayspotify16squaredpart2

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 […]

A DEAF Playlist

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
