I Like This Song - Beach Priest's "My Bestie Done Left Me" / 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 Beach Priest's 2016 album COOL YOU GONR. 

And oh yeah, btw, Beach Priest performs tonight at The Boiled Owl Tavern!

This is a FREE show with a suggested $5 donation and the bill features a great mix of local electronic acts in the form of Loose Pony, Blood Handsome, and Starbass Laboratories.

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

We're pretty set in our ways for the I Like This Song series. We never say much about the music itself besides, "I like this song."

However, in this series, we DO rather enjoy fleshing out album concepts; song and album titles, album visuals, etc., pretty much everything but the music itself.

On BP's Soundcloud page he notes that he "wrote this (album) about the end of my closest friendship."

Thought to myself, "I like where this is going." 

Then I noted the album title, "Hmm, like it again."

Then this song title stood out in an album's worth of amazing song titles.

Lastly, I finally listened to the song and the deal was sealed! 

I recommend giving the whole album a listen but given we had to choose one, I felt "My Bestie Done Left Me" set the tone for the record.  

I also thought the snail pic chosen as the album cover art meshed well with the record's theme. I mean who hasn't had a friendship that felt like it plodded along, leaving a trail of slime behind in its wake??

Now then, get me a bottle and put me on a beach ... we'll provide the message ...
