"Plastic Tomb"

We have previously covered the "great plastic patch" floating in an ocean near you. It has now inspired a song called "plastic tomb" - a great title. "Texas-sized vortex" is how the song's author describes the said patch - wow.

The video is worth watching - on mute if you are not a big fan of Peter Buffet's driving rock ballard.

The description provided with the video makes for interesting reading. You will have to judge for yourselves whether the beat is powerful and the harmonies chilling.

In honor of Earth Day, Peter is releasing the driving rock ballad "Plastic Tomb," whose powerful beat and chilling harmonies remind us of the relentless grip that big box stores have on today's consumer culture. The harm from such material excess is evident in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch – a Texas-sized vortex of marine litter consisting of pelagic plastics, chemical sludge, and other debris in the Northern Pacific ocean. With characteristic urgency, Peter urges us to break free from these wasteful habits, and in turn, eliminate the wake of plastic and paper across the planet.
