Smitt E. Smitty & The Fezztones - "Bye Bye Sunday Afternoon"

The latest from Smitt E. Smitty & The Fezztones sees Smitty taking a backseat while backing vocalists Subtle and Serious (aka Linda Pardee of The Chelsea Curve and JoEllen Saunders of Cold Expectations) step up into lead vocals. "Bye Bye Sunday Afternoon" is the kind of weirdo garage rocker that is Smitty's trademark. The song is so close to just being a normal garage rock song, but it's through The Fezztones' bizarro lens. The song has this great retro 60's grooviness to it without sounding like it's from the 60's. It's like a mixture of a Nuggets compilation mixed with Zappa and The B-52's. As you can probably guess from that description, "Bye Bye Sunday Afternoon" is almost too much fun, and might be the most party ready song about Sunday afternoon of all time.

You can listen to "Bye Bye Sunday Afternoon" below. The single is out now on Rock Garden Records, and is available through Bandcamp. For more on Smitt E. Smitty & The Fezztones, check out the band on Instagram and Facebook. The band will be playing as part of the Rock Garden Records showcase at Warehouse XI in Somerville on July 26 and 27.
