Music Geek Track of the Day: ‘Body Butter’ by Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene
By Matt Grosinger on March 20, 2014
Broken Social Scene bandleader/architect Kevin Drew is back with his brand new album Darlings, a followup to 2007’s excellent Spirit If, which is full of sexually frank scenarios and the kind of explicit vernacular poetry that is Drew’s forte. If you don’t know exactly what I am talking about, consider the first line of the album: “Get the body butter, baby, let’s go party all alone.” I am close to certain that no one could pull off this line as sincerely and sweetly as Drew
After you listen to the lead track from his new album, check below the song for an infomercial about Kevin Drew’s body butter product, which is ACTUALLY A REAL PRODUCT YOU CAN OWN. I thought this was a hoax, and cringed a bit when I found out I was wrong. But hey, who am I to judge? Tequila Lime Body Butter sounds like it might even be soothing. The video also teases the arrival of his proprietary “beard tonic,” which is infinitely less sexy.
