Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 6/5/2016

cassette (6)

Last week, the nominees for the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards were announced, and it serves as a reminder that Dallas’ sister city is awash in talent too.  Many of these artists are regulars on my playlist, whereas some of these acts were new (and pleasant) discoveries to me.  I must note that there are […]

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 […]

This is going to be a busy week for me.  Tonight, I’ll be spending time at Liquid Lounge celebrating my dear friend Kim Taylor Owens’ birthday.  I’d encourage you to join me and hear tunes from Justin Pickard, Joe Hardy (Hello Lover, Hawk vs. Dove), Bull by the Horn, Kes O’ Hara, and more. I’ll also […]

The Full List of Ghosty Winners

The 1st Annual Ghosty Awards

First of all, I have so many thank you’s to give, as there are so many people who helped make last night something very special.  Thanks to the entire staff at The Underpass for being gracious and wonderful hosts, and for making sure everything went smoothly.  Obviously, I have to thank the musicians.  Camille Schuh, […]

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, […]

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 […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: Summer Summar...

clear cassette

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 […]

My apologies for the lack of posts last week.  Life obligations (translation: job) have not left me with enough time or energy to properly blog.  I’m hoping this week will be a better return to Ghostly form for yours truly.  Until then, here’s another sixteen songs for you.  I mean, you do like songs, right?

Carry Illinois, “Quiet the Alarm” The Austin band kicks off their tour this Tuesday in Denton at Dan’s Silverleaf, and then hops over to play a show the next day at Shipping and Receiving in Fort Worth.  There’s probably not an Austin based band that I’ve talked about more in the past few months than […]
