Foundry 2020

When people look back on the year 2020, most of what will come to mind is the pandemic, as well as financial and emotional loss, not to mention the psychological effects of social distancing.  Yes, this has been a rough year, and our music community was most definitely hit hard by the events of 2020.  […]

Monday Mixteen: 5/18/2020

Monday Mixteen 20200518

This past Saturday, former President Obama was the commencement speaker, so to speak, for the graduating Class of 2020.  It is certainly unorthodox to have a former President give a commencement speech to a nation of graduates.  These times, however, have been anything but orthodox. So, continuing in that unorthodox vain, why not do a […]

Fresh Ghosts - Tessa Morin

As I mention in yesterday’s Monday Mixteen, this week marks the twelfth anniversary of the start of the Ghost of Blind Lemon blog.

Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted […]

It is The Ghost’s privilege to debut the new video from Relick for “Today Sunshine.” The clip, directed by Shanna Lucas, shows Matt and Amber Hibbard from the band enjoying a day of fun at an amusement park.

Alright, so May hasn’t been my month.  In fact, this is the first blog post of May, and the entire month happened with zero episodes of GOBL Radio.  Here’s hoping that the summer months are kinder to Ghosts.  In fact, you can count on more announcements, articles, etc. from GOBL in the coming days and […]

Expect an announcement very, very soon regarding the Ghosty Award ceremony.  In the meantime, I figure it’s time to start shining the spotlight on some nominees.  We’ll start with the nominees for Best EP.  Since EP’s are short by nature, I’ll keep my comments brief as well.  Feel free to vote in this category (and […]

So, have you check out my list of the Best Albums of 2016 (so far)?  I’d encourage you to do so now if you haven’t already.  Today’s Sunday Spotify 16 is something of an extension to that list.  The Ghost has included alternate favorite choices from certain albums and EPs.  In addition, I’m mentioning several […]

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 […]
