Possible best band bio ever: “Clearly, the Turbo Fruits are not athletes. They are, however, a rock ‘n’ roll band and one that could likely take your state rock ‘n’ roll champion to the mat in less time than it takes to cue up a record.” They have that perfectly slouchy, shiny, unkempt look, and their sound (take single “Sweet Thang”) is equally slouchy and punchy, garagey and underscored with bravado. Turbo Fruits’ latest, Butter, was recorded in a mere eight days by Spoon’s Jim Eno, and the band is circling the Eastern U.S. in support of that album. They play Broadway’s on Thursday, Oct. 25.
