I Like This Song - Acid Carousel's "Higher Than The Beatles!" / by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

I Like This Song celebrates songs by local bands sans clichéd music journo over-analysis.

The furthest we take the dissection of songs featured here is, well, you guessed it: "I Like This Song."

Today's featured song is the title track from Acid Carousel's forthcoming double LP, Higher Than The Beatles!

On March 7th the band announced the album will be released via Fort Worth's Dreamy Life Records, due to hit stores.. what do ya know, on April 20th.

Fresh off their successful Acid Spring Break !!! tour, you can catch the Acid Carousel cult in Fort Worth early this Friday night for Happy Hour at the Dreamy Life Records store. Event starts at 6pm, full details here.

Before delving into our expert musical analysis I'd like to give a hearty FWN s/o to Acid Carousel for all of the above.

I swear by every forest goddess I worship that between the music video and the album cover, the visuals associated with this record coulda made Utopiates' author Richard Blum blush.

"Higher Than The Beatles" is a bold claim to be sure but the Acid Carousel gang seem to back it up. I'll frame it this way: more than any other band in the 'plex, I wanna be on-board THIS band's tour bus.

Know what I'm saying?? 

 The Acid Carousel Handbook perhaps?

Oh, that's right. Now I owe y'all a highly sophisticated musical opinion. Hmm, let's see....

Me: I LIKE THIS SONG! WHY AM I TYPING IN ALL CAPS?? IDK. FUCK IT. I THINK IT'S BECAUSE I LIKE THIS SONG!

Someone: Maybe it's because you took a lot of acid to find your mode to write this article? 

Me: IDK AF. I LIKE THIS SOOOOONNNNNGGGGGGG!!!GGGG!!!GGG!!GG!GG!
