Going West

November 13, 2010

Finding good, solid new music is like trying to find a decent, tolerable guy (or girl) to date. Most just feed you line after line of bullshit, many are boring & unimaginative, and there are few that emotionally move you to leave a lasting impression. But when you do find the right one, it’s something pretty extraordinary. You can’t stop thinking, fantasizing, dreaming about them. Your whole world is turned upside down, and you imagine what life was like before you stumbled upon them…what life was like before you stumbled upon Smith Westerns.

Smith Westerns

Originally hailing from Chicago, the guys of S Dubs…Cullen Omori (vocals/guitar), Cameron Omori (bass), and Max Kakacek (guitar)…are all likely younger than a majority of everyone reading this, yet they rock out just as hard as any of their legendary musical influences (stemming from the likes of the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Nuggets, & Pretty Things).

Recently signed to Fat Possum (WAAVES, The Walkmen, T. Rex), be on the lookout for the release of their new album “Dye It Blonde” on January 18, 2011. In the meantime, they’ll be touring around Europe with MGMT through the rest of 2010.

Listen to and download “Be My Girl” here, a gut-wrenching and equally charming power track that’s 1 part garage and 2 parts kickass. Listen, love, and never look back.

Oh, how we love thee, Smith Westerns.
