The Prefab Messiahs - "Water Bottle"

Worcester, MA's favorite "proto-lo-fi post-punk left-field garage-pop band" are back with a new song. "Water Bottle" is a freak out jam written from the perspective of a water bottle floating in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It doesn't get much more vintage than this, although there is a modern sheen layered on top of the song. With lyrics like "
I am a water bottle / belonging to no one / I'm just a piece of garbage / Clogging the Pacific Ocean," it's a fairly dark song, although there is an impossible to resist sense of humor with the song keeping it from getting too dismal. This is the kind of song that would have been considered an album filler back in the day but ended up becoming a modern day favorite.

You can watch the video for "Water Bottle" below. Music for Concerned Citizens is due out July 9. You can pre-order your copy over at Bandcamp. For more on The Prefab Messiahs, check the band out on Facebook.
