On Friday, Pokey LaFarge released a video for the title track of his upcoming Rounder Records debut, Something in the Water, via NPR's All Songs Considered blog.
Screenshot from the video. "She drinks malt liquor for lunch and dinner and sends me running scared."
LaFarge tells NPR that the song "is about the ups and downs of a Midwestern love affair. The female character in the song doesn't always treat her man right, but no matter how crazy things can get and how hard things sometimes seem to be, he realizes that all of her quirks and eccentricities are a big part of why he loves her and that ultimately he can't live without her. I guess that's what they call love, or at least can be one definition of many."
