The Kava Lounge Part 2 – Mittens – May 6, 2016

The next band up, after Retra, was Mittens.  I had heard quite a bit about Mittens and now I know what all the fuss was about.  Mittens’ blend of ’60s girl group sounds, ’90s alt-rock (think Cardigans not Smashing Pumpkins – though I have no doubt that Paul Mitten could unleash some great Billy Corgan riffs!), and modern indie pop really was just as good as I was warned it would be. 

Here are four songs from this performance with the highlight being their tribute to PrinceThe Bangles’ version of “Manic Monday”:

Starting to Care   ·   “Dapple Dandy”   ·   “Manic Monday   ·   “Heart of Me
