Ten for Your Attention This Thursday:...

bethjames

Back in the days when Dallas Observer used to have music editors, people would often suggest that I apply for the position.  They would say that my perspective on the music scene and my writing skills would be just what the DO needed.  And without fail, I would accept the compliment, but never tried for […]

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: 11/6/16

The Ghost has not felt well the past few days.  As a result, I will not be adding commentary on this week’s playlist.  In fact, this playlist is sort of a “comfort music” style playlist, featuring newer and older songs that just feel comfortable and good to my ears.  Not to worry, however, as The […]

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 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 […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: 4/10/...

sundayspotify16squared

So, I had this genius idea.  I wanted to do sixteen of my Sunday Spotify Sixteen playlist in one day.  Each playlist would encompass one year of the 21st century, ranging from 2001 to the unfinished year of 2016.  And for the record, the year 2000 is still part of the 20th century.  But, I […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 3/20/2016

So first, let me apologize for the vanishing blog posts last week.  While those posts have forever disappeared into an interweb black hole, there should be no further issues with this and future posts. Also, I’m trying to get some cool stuff up and going this week.  I have some awesome post ideas, plus the […]

Greetings once again, GOBL readers.  I apologize for the lack of posts lately.  An illness has kept me down for a little bit, but I’m happy to say that I’m recovering, and want to thank all the well wishers, friends, and the like.  It’s nice to be back to my old local music loving self, […]

The Grove: Pleasant or Unpleasant?

I wanted to share two new tracks that were debuted yesterday.  Musically, the two tracks share little in common.  One song is from one of my favorite bands of the early 2000’s whose sound I’d describe as the halfway point between country and shoegaze.  The other is a new track by my favorite local rapper.  […]
