Fountains Of Wayne – “Song Of The Passaic”

Fountains Of Wayne PR 2009

A couple weeks back NPR did a story on New Jersey’s Passaic River. It is, as one author in the story calls it, a “toilet” river that residents won’t eat seafood from. Other people are scared to touch the water. You know, typical Jersey stuff. Fountains Of Wayne (who are named for a store in Wayne, New Jersey) decided to supplement the NPR story and honor the Passaic with its own song. It’s a dignified and kind tribute to what sounds like a pretty terrible river.

They put “Song Of The Passaic” on their website for download, meanwhile, the band has completed their next, still-untitled album. They are currently unsigned, so no word yet on when it’ll be released.
