Listening To: Smith Westerns

19 Feb

Chicago based band Smith Westerns could be summed up as David Bowie meets T. Rex. All the tracks off their new self titles album pay homage to their glam-rock, retro-pop influences, but the Smith Westerns aren’t all throwback. There’s something fresh and new about the lo-fi sound and earnest lyrics. I have a good feeling about the Smith Westerns, something similar to when I first heard MGMT a couple years ago. Mark my words, these guys are going to be big! This song, Girls in Love, is utterly infectious, and it’s totally my new spring jam.

The Smith Westerns will be playing at the Media Club here in Vancouver on March 7th. This is definitely a be there or be square situation!
