Video of the day (The Smittens - One Hundred Roses)

It's quite a jump, going from Refused to The Smittens, but I guess it fits the schizo nature of this blog. Maybe I will put both The Smittens and Refused on my Indietracks mix-tape/CD. That would most definitely blow one lucky person's mind...maybe even literally.

The Smittens are a lovely bunch of people from Vermont, playing lovely music. They're pretty much the musical equivalent of Haribo - sweeeeeeeeet and irresistable.

The below video contains one of my favorite lyrics ever - "It doesn't mean that I love you any less. It only means that I'm a mess". The whole thing is bound to put a smile on your face.

The Smittens are about to embark on a European summer tour, together with Allo Darlin (and Moustache of Insanity on a few dates), so if you're in need of a high dose of vitamin-POP you should try to catch them. Dates are:
