Hey Folks,
It’s been ages since the last update, so here it goes.

Happy Happy Birthday to Me is pleased to present “The Coolest Thing About Love”, the new album by The Smittens, the gentlest gang in town!

Sincere honest pop music with a gentle heart and good intentions! Herein lie some of the Smittens softest and sweetest songs yet. Lovingly home recorded by the Smittens themselves with new sounds and friends chipping in and then mixed and produced with Eric Masunaga and the gang working to make their new favorite record to share with friends and lovers and family and fans the world over. Look out! Tune in! Don't mess with the rainbow!

PREORDER – the Smittens “the Coolest Thing About Love” for $12.00 postage paid in the US and Canada. The preorder comes with a bonus button & artwork print outs. Limited to 50 preorders.

HHBTM is also very happy to announce we will be issuing the US version of Hotpants Romance “It’s a Heatwave” in early August. This CD will be available in the mail order shortly. Three girls, three years, three chords, what more do you need. For fans of Slampt.

Cars Can Be Blue “Doubly Unbeatable” preorder bonus package is now gone. We do have the regular version still available though.

The second round of singles club singles were mailed a few weeks ago, everyone should have their singles club by now. Round three is coming together now, and will be shipping (fingers crossed) by the end of the year.
