Smith Westerns “Weekend”

We were thrilled to announce Chicago youngin’s Smith Westerns sophomore album Dye It Blonde to you last week with, in our opinion, one of the most amazing tracks of 2009 “Imagine Pt. 3”, so naturally we’re even more stoked to share yet another track off the album which is set to drop on January 18th via Fat Possum (along with yet another rad band-du-jour Tennis’s debut album).

The new track “Weekend” is a lot more polished than their earlier garage bandish tracks, which we’re sure has a lot to do with the enhanced budget of the album. We loved them when they weren’t as shiny as this track portrays, but hey, everybody has growing pains, so we’ll take it whatever way it comes.
