SMITTENS, THE: The Coolest Thing about Love: CD

This band is very doo wop. And they are very clear with the album artwork, lyrics, and song titles that they are all about “love.” It’s not hippy music, though, so don’t misunderstand. It’s more like cutesy ‘50s music. It’s kind of adorable to a point of being disgusting. But I like it nonetheless, even though listening to it is the equivalence of me puking in my mouth after the sight of an adorable couple riding a tandem bike. It reminds me a lot of The Magnetic Fields with the types of instruments they use, the tone of voice, and the song pace. I like that about it.
