I Like This Song - Un Chien's "Never Coming Back" 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 literally debuted less than an hour prior to this posting - talk about farm-to-table! The track comes from Un Chien's new record Where We Belong, the band's sophomore effort, soon to be released by Hand Drawn Records.

The band will be celebrating the new record Saturday January 14th at Lola's Saloon w/ friends War Party and Cut Throat Finches. 

You know what? 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.”
