The Smittens - 'The Coolest Thing About Love'
Indie popsters The Smittens will make their way from Burlington, Vermont, to Athens Popfest in just over a week. They'll no doubt be bringing along their brand new album The Coolest Thing About Love just released on Happy Happy Birthday To Me. It's among my personal favorites for 2008. It's a wonderful album to close out the summer, as it's just saturated with warmth and irresistible hooks. Fans of twee will eat this up, and I'd recommend it to anybody with a taste for clever pop.

I have to note the shouts to the Athens kids in "The Interstate." Let's prove them right at Popfest, eh? Their Myspace has more goodies.
