Honestly? I don't know too much about San Antonio-based rock outfit Buttercup . Well, other than the fact that the band spent last fall here in Dallas while Salim Nourallah produced its new full-length release The Weather Here, and that the group managed to nab a pretty sweet Web (and MySpace) address. (Buttercult? Come on, that's pretty cool)
But, for whatever reason, I keep stumbling across mentions of the band, or random people will ask/tell me about it.
Anyway, this afternoon, Buttercup sent us an mp3 for, hopefully, your listening enjoyment. So, after the jump please listen to, or download, "Always Alcohol" from the band's new album.
