Venerable Oxford, Mississippi label Fat Possum has recently been snatching up great new bands as if they knew something everyone else didn't. Wavves and Crocodiles were the first surprise signings, and now they've got former Be Your Own Pet dude Jonah Stein's band Turbo Fruits coming with a new album named Echo Kid in September. It's loaded with twangy, loose and scratchy rebel rock that would sound really good as you and your buddy floor it towards the cliff's edge to impress some girl. Don't do that, just saying. We're happy to offer one of Echo Kid's finest moments—full of whistles and shouts, pounding drums and guitars about to fall apart. Check for Turbo Fruits on tour with the maniacal Monotonix in September and October and, if you gotta date coming up, catch them playing in the round in Drew Barrymore's sure-to-be-classic rollerderby flick Whip It! on October 9th. Ellen Page is attached!
