“Dave, tell ‘em about your wrestling record”

“Three wins, sixteen defeats. Beat the same kid twice. Lost to the state champion in six seconds”

Clearly, the Turbo Fruits are not athletes. They are, however, a rock n roll band and one that could likely take your state rock & roll champion to the mat in less time than it takes to cue up a record. What the Nashville, Tennessee quartet lack in physical adeptness they make up for in wild abandon and unfettered debauchery; in buzzsaw guitars and pummeling, primal rhythms. And they STILL look good in a unitard and head gear. Okay, that might not be true – we haven’t tested that theory yet, there wasn’t quite enough beer, there may never be enough beer – but they are definitely one of the most visceral rock groups in America, as is evidenced on their new album Butter.

Recorded in eight days in Austin, Texas with Spoon’s Jim Eno at his Public Hi-Fi studio, Butter is the follow up to their 2009 Fat Possum album Echo Kid and the 2007 Ecstatic Peace debut. It’s a spastic, slab of fun-filled fury, a double-live-gonzo Athena busting out of The Flaming Groovies’ Teenage Head, thrashing its way through punk, surf, and power-pop and leaving a wake of blown minds and melted faces. Y’know, like a rock record is supposed to do.

Butter is the product of 200 days a year in the van, sleeping on floors, accumulating the kind of stories you would never, ever tell your grandkids. Butter is the product of two years spent cranking out singles for their own Turbo Time Records, the product of organizing their annual ocean-bound rock & roll party The Bruise Cruise. Butter is the product of busting their asses the way most bands pull bong rips. Butter is a wild, raw record for the kind of folks that aren’t ashamed to get loose, get sweaty and get down.

Now let’s see if the state wrestling champion can beat tha

While Nashville is known as “Music City USA”, this is a pretty small market if you aren’t in the country music scene.  Our mission with this blog is to raise awareness about the independent music scene in Nashville by spotlighting the great bands that are budding around the Music City, and to attract more of the national acts to swing through Nashville.

No Country For New Nashville is a team of passionate music lovers who can help to publicize your shows, review your records, and promote your band.  If you are a band, feel free to introduce yourself.  Or, if you are a music nerd like us, we love to hear your suggestions and comments.

*If you are an artist, and we have posted something of yours that you want taken down, just send me a message.
