The Smittens Get Remixed – Head Abroad!

Here’s some info about THE SMITTENS and their bad ass REMIX EP coming out! As well as some info + tour dates straight from their site.

The latest news!


On July 19th London’s Oddbox Records will release Dancing Shoes: The Smittens Remixed, an 8-song ep of Smittens songs reimagined by 8 different awesome re-mixers!

Here’s the track-listing:

01 Party Time (The Boston Boys Have the Cutest Butts mix by Mark Robinson)
02 The Garden (Mesclun Mix by Greg Davis)
03 Army of Popkids (Less Army, More Pop Mix by Dana Julie Kaplan)
04 Sapphire (Stock-Aitken-Waterman Mix by Nixon)
05 Baby, Don’t You Know? (Kochalka Quality Mix by James Kochalka)
06 Momus, Where Are You? (Oil and Water Mix by Ryan Power)
07 Pretty Boy (Premix/Remix by Colin Clary)
08 Twitterpated (Twitterpated 2005! Mix by Steve Williams)


We were excited to work with so many rad folks this time around – Mark Robinson, Roger Gunnarsson, Ryan Power, Greg Davis, James Kochalka, and the Smittens’ own Colin and Dana – plus Greg did the mastering as well. Our friendTed Olson helped out with the art work and Greg Comollo took the photos.

Also there is a Smittens song, our cover of Tullycraft’s “Sweet”, on the forth-coming Wish I’d Kept a Scrapbook: A Tribute to Tullycraft on Unchikun Records.

Last but not least, we’ll be taking off this week for our 3-week European tour – this time Vermont’s favorite indiepop ambassadors are breaking new ground in Paris, Hamburg, Copenhagen and more, as we spend 2 weeks roaming the continent with the fantabulous Allo Darlin’ following our first week in the UK and our third time at the absolutely amazing Indietracks Festival in Derbyshire.
