Broken Social Scene’s front man Kevin Drew released his new solo album, Darlings, through City Slang in Europe and Arts & Crafts in the US earlier this week.
Featuring such titles as Good Sex, Bullsh*t Ballad and Body Butter, it’s a delightfully wry offering which, among moments of the amusingly absurd and intentionally dry-witted, never fails to provide the listener with great hooks and stellar melodies.
Speaking of Body Butter, Drew also caused much amusement online late last week when he announced that, to accompany the song, he has turned his name to a real-life Tequila Lime flavoured body butter, available from Toronto skin care company Wildrose Magnolia. You can watch the infomercial featuring Drew’s new single, Body Butter, here.
