Drink Up Buttercup: New Album, Home Video

We just got a hold of this psyched-out and wild home video of Philly brethren Drink Up Buttercup bringing their unhinged live set-up to a tiny vocal booth. We tipped you off earlier to their upcoming record Born and Thrown on a Hook which comes out March 23rd on the venerable Yep Roc. The album spans genres, with multiple nods to The Beatles but also to the far-out reaches of the psych-rock spectrum, as evidenced by the above track "Heavy Hand." Despite its broad reach, Born and Thrown on a Hook holds together as an album, solidified by Buttercups' effusive passion for music, the joy they have playing it, and their exceptional ear for a finely crafted and expertly-executed song.
