Mittens on Strings
Let’s Go to Baba’s
(SOUNGS)
Releasing: October 6

Mittens on strings, the hand-warming items, seem like a silly idea until the first time you let a mitten dangle from your sleeve while doing precise finger work, only to retrieve the mitten seconds later from its convenient position mere inches away from your hand.

Mittens on Strings, the band, have a song called “Big Brother” that seems like standard lo-fi rock at first, until the gang vocals kick in and demand your attention, and the guitar solo combines notes that surely have been combined before in a way that seems like they’ve crossed galaxies to meet in a totally unique formation, and a second listen reveals that the entire song is silly-awesome. Slawesome?

The album will be for sale on vinyl and as a DRM-free download via the pay-what-you-want model.
