Griff says; 'El primer álbum de los Mittens!'

The Spanish indiepop band Mittens release their debut album 'Deer Park Mirage' today. Those of you who followed my earlier Wild Honey recommendation will definitely want to have a listen as Guillermo from Wild Honey is one of the members of Mittens. Guillermo writes songs for Mittens too and the music is a little similar to the Wild Honey sound but with a more solid pop backbone. The inclusion of female vocals and a twangy electric guitar sound combine to provide a pleasing twee and rather 60's pop feel with a hint of country music thrown in for good measure.
The album is available as a free download from bandcamp. If further convincing is required then have a wee listen to my two favourite tracks (below);
