I Like This Song - Animal Spirit's "Doom Surf" 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 and accompanying music video comes from Animal Spirit and their soon-to-be-released album "This is Relevant," due out in February.

New music from this wondrous Fort Worth band started my 2017 on the right foot when they released the above vid for "Doom Surf" this past New Year's Day.    

If this track is a harbinger of what's to come, get stoked about their new record Fort Worthians.

Wait for it. Wait for it.
