I Like This Song - Jetta In The Ghost Tree's "Clandestine" / 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 comes from Jetta In The Ghost Tree's Clandestine Vol. I, an Idol Records full-length that debuted in Spring 2015.

You can catch Jetta in their element this Saturday at Lola's with Shadows Of Jets, Garrett Owen, and ATX's Shapescenes.

If you haven't experienced Jetta live I highly recommend marking your calendar for this one. Ya see, this bill is a family affair.

Why does this matter? I'll tell you. 

In my experience, bills that feature "frands" (like a friendship but between two bands) produce a much better overall show vibe. Fans, bands, venue staff; everyone benefits when frands are involved.

Like, I can't stand a bill that doesn't feature at least one set of frands. You know the type of bill I'm talking about.. when the bands don't know each other, when the other bands and their fans simply wait for your set to end. Bleh, gross.

None of that will be happening Saturday at Lola's. Count on it. 

Show starts at 9pm, full event details posted here.

Now that we've launched "frands" into the vast depths of pop culture vernacular, let's get down to the business of the day. 

For this analysis I turn to one of my favorite translation apps, THE YODA-SPEAK GENERATOR (no worries, thank me later for introducing you to this wonderful language tool). 


This song I like. Yes, hmmm.
