Drink Up Buttercup Ink New Deal
If this is the kind of studio magic that is conjured in less than one day you won't believe your ears when you get to hear the full length coming in early 2010 recorded by Philly's veritable go-to guy, Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man) and mixed by Rusty Santos, the man responsible for the sound that graced Panda Bear's Person Pitch.
The single will be backed by an all new alternate version of the live performance fan favorite "Heavy Hand," and this digital 45 can be downloaded for FREE at Yep Roc's site . And for all the vinyl junkies out there the 7" only version will feature a cover of the Buzzcocks classic "Why Can't I Touch It." Expect two amazing reworks of the single courtesy of electro-pop meastro Cale Parks and renowned party-starter Andrew WK.
Drink Up Buttercup is truly the story of hard work and dedication. There was no stumbling upon an album deal, they earned it the good old-fashioned way by working their backsides off for it. This year alone they released a 7" (Sosey&Dosey/Farewell Captain) on Kanine Records (Grizzly Bear, Chairlift), recorded an entire full-length album, all while playing 60+ self-booked shows. They've shared the stage with the likes of Bishop Allen, The Fiery Furnaces, Tune-Yards, Clues, Marnie Stern and Free Energy and if you were lucky enough to catch them live at SXSW, New York's After The Jump or the countless other shows, consider yourself a member of a privileged club because it won't be as exclusive for too much longer.
