Back in September, longtime local psych-rockin' stoners Turbo Fruits released Butter, the riff-riddled follow-up to 2009's Echo Kid, via Kings of Leon's Serpents and Snakes Records. Among Butter's tracks was "Sweet Thang," a laid-back page right out of Marc Bolan's Book of Sexy Love Songs that the Cream's own Adam Gold referred to as "yearning and infectious" — and a song that helped make Butter one of the better local long-players of the year.
Today, the Fruits debuted their Seth Graves-directed video for "Sweet Thang" via A.V. Club. Writes the Club's Marah Eakin, "the video utilizes the tried-and-true formula of hot girls getting high, eating candy, and singing into hairbrushes." What, like a video from High Times' favorite Nashville-based garage rockers isn't going to feature a cameo from Mary Jane? Also, hey, how much of that glitter do you think the boys accidentally inhaled during filming? Meh, it's not like it'd be the most deadly thing ever to enter their lungs. By the way, the "Sweet Thang" 7-inch is now available on blue-sparkle vinyl via the Fruits' own label, Turbo Time Records.
