ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mittens is a trio from Boston, MA who aim to make music that your mom might actually like. Their smart and simple pop gives a nod to Squeeze, Nick Lowe, and has even been compared to a stripped-down Violent Femmes. The band is two parts Arizona ex-pats Tom and Andy, who write the numbers, and native Bostonian Nick, keeper of nice beats.

Produced and recorded at Zippah Studios by the legendary Pete Weiss, who's past credits include Al Kooper, Willard Grant, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mittens follow-up their two prior EPs with 13 tracks of poppy goodness and feature a special guest appearance by Anthony Rossamando (Damn Personals) on trumpet. Having shared the stage with the likes of Ben Kweller, Buffalo Tom, and Runner & The Thermodynamics, Mittens are sure to charm both fans and critics alike with their epnoymous debut.

what it sounds like when someone saves the world...
this record is nothing short of truly great. these are the kinds of songs that cars were invented for, so that you could drive around blasting the radio, feeling totally awesome. these are the kind of songs that the walkman was invented for, so that you could pump these songs into your ears and walk unphased and fantastic through throngs of less-happy people on city streets. these are the kinds of songs you wish you could have written yourself and snuck in on the mixtape you gave to that hot chick from freshman year art class in high school. she would have gone out with you if you did. buy this record now, or you'll live to regret it.

Mittens is the greatest band the world will never know!
I'm going to ignore that comparison to Maroon 5. It is difficult to do but I would like to pretend I never read that. Anyway, I love Mittens, and it is a shame that they broke up seven years ago. I bought this album several years ago but was left no choice but to buy it again after losing my ipod. Their follow-up album is great as well. It's too bad they weren't around long enough to gain more popularity, but then again I kind of like the fact that I can rave about this band called "Mittens" and no one has any idea what I am talking about. Then I feel smug and everyone assumes I have gone crazy.

Wicked Awsome!
This is an excellent collection; my favorite song is Balinda, but the rest of the songs are quite good. The music is varried--you aren't just listening to the same song over and over again with different lyrics. To me it kind of sounds like a harder rock version of Maroon 5.
