Andrew WK Remixes Drink Up Buttercup (Stereogum Premiere)

Philadelphia quartet Drink Up Buttercup’s “Sosey & Dosey” had a manic ’60s psychedelic carnival vibe to it. This remix of a newer song, “Even Think,” by Andrew W.K. continues the party, but pushes it in a different, dancier direction. The calmer original appears on a new free (for an email address) two-song digital 45 marking the band’s signing to Yep Roc. You can expect a full-length on Yep Roc in early 2010, but for now here’s W.K.’s bumped-up, highly caffeinated (and glow stick-appropriate) take on the fuzzed-out pop anthem.
