Michael Alan Goldberg led off the Philadelphia Weekly’s top 10 Album’s of 2010 list by naming Born and Thrown on a Hook as his #1 album of year.
PW also recommends you go to our show tomorrow night at John and Peter’s in New Hope. Since we’re going to be playing all new material tomorrow night some of these words might not ring true, but they are nice words nonetheless:
Drink Up Buttercup are a movie street scene rich in detail and activity, made to seem spontaneously chaotic while meticulously orchestrated. The bright whirling melodies suggest a careening carnival sweeping anyone nearby up in its bustling energy. Like a love child of the Flaming Lips and Sgt. Pepper’s, the Philly quartet’s psychedelica bubbles with playful experimentation, sudden bursts of instrumentation and abundant wonder particularly apparent in the soaring harmonies. Their ragged shambling gait imbues everything with a lively vibrancy as though muttering “light as a feather” might enable them to take off. After all the buzz that greeted this year’s debut LP Born and Thrown On a Hook, I wouldn’t bet against it. -Chris Parker [ link to original article ]

We’ve got a couple of shows before this year comes to an end. We’ll be playing local style at Big Heads with our good buds Illinois, heading up north to do a show with Ra Ra Riot, and saying “late” to 2k10 with friends at John and Peter’s. We’ve been working on lots of new tracks as well, so chances are we are going to be trying out some more of them at these shows.

Knitting Factory w/ Givers Review -
We played a show this past weekend with one of the greatest live bands we’ve ever had a chance to share a stage with, Givers. This review ( http://paper-spaceship.com/music/343-drink-up-buttercup-knitting-factory- ) sums up the night pretty well.
The guy in this photo is telling you that he better see you at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn this Sunday. He’s playing with one of his favorite bands, Givers, and would really love you to be there. Buy tickets here: http://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/16951
