Today's featured song comes from The FibsHex Hex Hex, a Dreamy Soundz EP that debuted in 2014.

If you get the feeling you recognize the above photo of Fibs' guitarist/vocalist Preston Newberry it's because I took said photo and have since plastered it gratuitously all across Fort Worth Noise's social media platforms.

Just fyi, for your future reference and all: double foot pedal magic tricks always have a home here at FWN. 

Btw, I passed on a Bandcamp or Soundcloud embed today and opted for this kick-ass diy music vid produced by The Fibs. Gaw lee y'all(!), if you wanna take yer eyes on a visual vacay we highly rec watching the viddy yo in its entirety.     

Enough of all that, time to break this song down Dad-joke style...

The band may be called The Fibs but I ain't fibbin' when I say, "I like this song."

about the word writer person:

Prewitt Scott-Jackson writes Dad poetry & short fiction when he's not hyping and typing for Fort Worth Noise. His writing can be found in Ghost City Press (New York), Five 2 One Magazine (Los Angeles), Prairie Schooner (University of Nebraska Press) and Sick Lit Magazine (Texas), among others. He prefers short walks on the beach because – and I quote – “It’s really hard to walk on sand."
