Monday Mixteen: 10/16/17

blue cassette

Last Tuesday was World Mental Health Day, and in case you missed it, The Ghost had a bit to say on the matter.  My original intent was just to share a few songs that addressed the issue, but it soon became clear that the story was supposed to be much more than that.  As a […]

Ten for Your Attention This Thursday:...

Most of the songs on today’s edition of Ten for Your Attention This Thursday are recent releases. In the case of Particular People, however, their album Meat for Particular People came out early this summer. It’s a release that probably would have flown under my radar had it not been for longtime GOBL fan and friend Shelley. […]

GOBL Presents Rat Rios, Tomkat, Franc...

DSC_0370

I thank Nick Scholl for taking these lovely photographs from my showcase at The Underpass earlier in February. The photos, however, do not tell the full story. The photos cannot show the unique intensity of the ritualistic performance of Francine Thirteen. No picture appropriate demonstrates the live skills of Tomkat. And no matter how good […]

New Year’s Revolutions: Part II...

TheUnderpass212

This edition of the New Year’s Revolutions posts is admittedly more self-promoting than the others.  Before 2016 began, however, I made a decision that there would be at minimum of one GOBL sponsored show each month this year. How am I doing on my resolution, or should I say revolution?  Well, as you know, I’ve […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 1/17/2016

The Suffers, “Peanuts” When Billboard debuts your new song, your band may really be going somewhere.  I have a feeling that 2016 is going to be huge for The Suffers.  Their funky, old-school soul sounds are truly infectious, plus this just might be the strongest vocal I’ve heard yet from Kam Franklin, and that’s saying […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 12/6/2015

mixtape (4)

Pentacon Six, “Christmas Is Better With You” Interesting fact: I got a lot of likes and retweets when I debuted the band’s Christmas song, but the majority of those came from OUTSIDE the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  Moral of the story: metroplex, you need to wake up and pay attention to this duo’s beautiful pop songs. […]

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, […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 11/8/15

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 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 Sunday Spotify Sixteen

cassette

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve made a playlist for my readers.  I suppose it’s about time I create one, right?  This time, I’ve chosen Spotify for the playlist.  While the service may not shell out the big bucks for each play, it at least helps the artists earn a little money, right?  With […]
