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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ghost Top 50

Now that we’ve made it into the Top 50, I suppose The Ghost should add a little commentary for each track.  Fine, I can do that, especially since I only have to do that for ten songs.  Yes, it’s an unusually short playlist today.  That’s because I’ve saved the remaining Top 40 for Sunday afternoon.  […]

The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #7...

GOBL Top 101 of 2018 Pt 2

Another day, another reveal of countdown songs.  Yesterday, you saw #101-71.  #70 is something of a rebel.  It’s one of one two songs in the countdown that is currently unavailable on Spotify.  You can take that up with Starside R&D on January 5, when they perform at Double-Wide along with Kid Fight and Sandovall.  So […]

Now that Christmas is over, and you have time to kill until New Year’s Eve, this seems the perfect time to begin The Ghost’s Year End Countdown. For the next three days, I will be highlighting songs that were among the best and most defining tracks for me in 2018. Today, we start at #101, […]
