Drink Up Buttercup – Mr. Pie Eyes

 

Challenging Animal Collective for North America’s modern day psych-pop stars, Drink Up Buttercup look to the 60s for inspiration and imagination as they emerge from a saturated US alt-pop market with interesting aplomb.  Mr. Pie Eyes would terrify a 3-year-old no doubt, with its persistent, distorted chorus that can’t be far off from what goes through the head of A Clockwork Orange’s Alex DeLarge.  Theremin is thrown in too for suitably other-worldly effect, as this band seem intent on creating something new. 

 

Gods and Gentlemen on the b-side though is a more traditional affair, clearly being encouraged by The Beatles’ later years.  This more simple take is no less interesting though, and offers up an alternative path for when the theremin breaks or they don’t want to make children cry.
