Holy Smit!

Posted By on Tue, Aug 26, 2008 at 2:33 PM

As alluded to in the previous post, I have a backlog of of Smittens-related stuff to pass along. So let's get right to it, shall we?

First up, The Smittens released their latest record, The Coolest Thing About Love, earlier this summer, shortly before hopping across the pond for the Indietracks Indiepop Festival — much of which took place on a train! Awesome.

I have the album. It's great. But that's all I'm going to tell you about it for now, because I also have a serious backlog of CDs to review and wouldn't want to spoil the fun when we actually get around to reviewing the disc in the paper — such is life when you only print two reviews per week, I suppose. In the meantime, check out this clip of the band from their recent performance at PopFest in Athens. These guys really get around, don't they?

And if you're really jonesing for someone to glowingly tell you more about the new album, you can check out this review from Treble reviewer Tom Lee. The band was also recently featured on NME's website performing The Monkees' "I'm a Believer." Check it out here.

That's probably enough for now. Don't want to overhwelm your delicate twee sensibilities.
