This weekend I had the television on while I was doing some housework and I heard a familiar sound. It was none other than the first song, called “Weekend”, off of the Smith Westerns’ latest album, Dye It Blonde.
Their sound is unmistakable. The cavernous vocals and crazy, glam rock hooks are enough to make you think that Marc Bolan is still alive and well (or at the very least, was reincarnated in a couple of Chicago 20-somethings). You can download Dye It Blonde (for only $7.99!) and catch them on tour this summer with Yeasayer.
