Monday Mixteen: 2/18/19

Monday Mixteen 20190218

A funny thing happened this week. I’m not referring to the fact that I posted two articles this week, though that has been quite atypical of my output as of late. It’s more what I rediscovered in the process of completing those posts. The truth is, I really love writing about artists. I’m not just […]

Review: Devi, “Love Will Tear U...

Doing a good cover song can be a challenge, to say the least. Doing a cover of an iconic song, however, is the musical equivalent of blindly walking through a field of landmines. Listeners will scrutinize every note and verse, looking for reasons to blast the performer for their take on their beloved song. Joy […]

Falling for the New Beth // James son...

It seems like everything has been Falling into piece for former Dentonite Mikaela Kahn. Ms. Kahn moved to Austin several years ago along with Jordan James Burchill, where they started performing together as Beth // James. The two have gathered critical acclaim for their lovely folk melodies, even earning a few Ghosty Awards along the way. […]

VW (Video Wednesday): 2/6/19

So I’ve missed the last few Monday Mixteens, including this Monday. While I haven’t done a playlist or radio show in too long, there are several videos I feel compelled to share with you. So I guess it’s time to bring back Video Wednesday for a bit, right? Up first is a brand new video […]

Monday Mixteen MLK 2019

To celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday today, I felt it should be something that was incorporated in today’s Monday Mixteen.  The Ghost’s first instinct was to do another acrostic playlist, with the song titles spelling out his name (minus the Jr. part).  While I kept with that theme, I felt it was not […]

You may notice that the songs in the below playlist are in the alternating order of the letters S & M. Yes, The Ghost realizes that this theme may be rather controversial. I could have easily shied away from it, but it seems pointless to try to hide one’s deepest desires. Several readers will find […]

Monday Mixteen 20180107

Happy new year to all my GOBL readers.  It’s time for the first Monday Mixteen of 2019.  It feels like it should be an opportunity to explore the future of new music.  I learned, however, that January 7th is Old Rock Day.  It only seems appropriate that we examine some old rock.  The term old […]

Now that The Top 101 of 2018 has been counted down, it might seem that The Ghost’s job is done for the year.  The truth is that there are still some loose ends to tie up.  While I think I’ve done a decent job at keeping you updated about local and Texas music, there are […]

The Ghost’s Top 101 Songs of 20...

The Ghost's Top 101 of 2018

The Spotify playlist here only features 99 of the tracks.  Thanks a lot, Starside R&D and Emmeline for being the rebels that had to not place your songs on Spotify.  Well, here are the 99 artists that have their music on Spotify.  If you feel so compelled, I provided players for both of the artists […]

So, we’ve gone through #101-71, #70-51, and #50-41 on the year end countdown.  All that remains is the Top 40 songs of the year, which shall be revealed Sunday afternoon on Deep Ellum Radio, starting at 3 PM CST.  But I’ll bet some of you are wondering which artists will make the Top 40.  Well, […]
